Goodrich Technology Picked for Laser Threat Warning System

Contract Expected To Generate Approximately $21 Million In Sales

Goodrich Corporation has been awarded a contract by Lear Siegler, Inc. for initial production quantities of laser threat warning systems for use on US Army Blackhawk and Chinook helicopters. This option is the first installment of a multi-year contract in support of the US Army. The contract is expected to generate approximately $21 million in original equipment sales for Goodrich over 3 years, with first deliveries beginning in 2006.

According to Goodrich Electro-Optical Systems Vice President and General Manager, David Olson, "Goodrich is pleased to provide our service men and women with our advanced laser warning system as a key enhancement to their battlefield security portfolio. This new product continues a 30-year heritage of excellence in providing for US Army force protection."

The new AN/AVR-2B laser threat warning system design is the next generation of existing Goodrich aircraft survivability equipment, which has been successfully deployed on over 1,600 helicopters, including those involved in recent sorties in Iraq.

Smaller and 50% lighter than previous generation systems, the all-weather AN/AVR-2B provides extreme reliability and accuracy in detecting known laser threats.

Goodrich has been a supplier of aviation survivability equipment for over 30 years. The company's Electro-Optical Systems business, based in Danbury, Conn., maintains the only production line for US Army laser warning systems in the United States.
