Egyptian Air Force Selects Goodrich DB-110 Airborne Reconnaissance System
  • System will be installed on new Block 52+ F-16 fighters

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 19, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) has received a contract from the U.S. Air Force to provide its advanced DB-110 airborne reconnaissance system for the Egyptian Air Force's new Block 52 F-16 fighter aircraft. The Foreign Military Sale (FMS) contract calls for Goodrich to provide one DB-110 reconnaissance pod. Work will be performed by the company's ISR Systems team in Chelmsford, Mass.

Goodrich's DB-110 digital, real-time, tactical reconnaissance system captures images day and night using electro-optical/infrared sensor technology. Images can then be transmitted in real-time to analysts on the ground. Egypt is the eighth country to select Goodrich's DB-110 system.

Andrew Chrostowski, Vice President, ISR Systems, Goodrich, said, "We are very pleased that the Egyptian Air Force has chosen our DB-110 system as the reconnaissance system for its F-16 Fighting Falcons. Since the DB-110 was selected by Poland's Ministry of National Defense in 2003, all F-16 FMS customers have selected the DB-110 as their reconnaissance system. Given our successful track record on the F-16, new customers are assured of a high-performance, low-risk, proven solution."

The DB-110 will provide the Egyptian Air Force a day/night high-resolution, wide area ISR imaging capability to support tactical reconnaissance operations. Imagery can be viewed on the F-16's cockpit video display as it is collected, enabling the pilot to verify targets and conduct tasks such as battle damage assessment. The cockpit display also gives the pilot the ability to collect new targets of opportunity during the mission.

Egypt is acquiring 20 new Lockheed Martin Advanced Block 52 F-16 multi-role fighters under the Peace Vector Foreign Military Sale program.
