Goodrich Corporation at next week's Aero India will showcase mission critical defense technology that brings real-time information to air crews and war fighters along with leading field proven safety systems. Aero India 2011 takes place at Air Force Station Yelahanka, Bangalore on February 9-13.
Goodrich (booth B19c) will display its F-16 ACES II advanced concept ejection seat. Credited with saving over 600 lives to date, the ACES II are the only ejection seats in the world with active pitch stabilization providing consistent performance capability at airspeeds of zero to 600 KEAS (knots equivalent airspeed) and altitudes of zero to 60,000 feet. Complementing the ACES II will be the Common Crash Resistant Troop Seat, designed for installation on multiple helicopter platforms.
In addition, Goodrich will be demonstrating mission critical guidance, navigation and stabilization products; including updated TERPROM Terrain software, designed to increase flight safety and tactical awareness for both fixed wing and helicopter platforms, along with MEMS based inertial sensors and advanced ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) data collection and dissemination systems.
Goodrich technical teams will be on hand throughout the show for expert demonstrations and to answer questions on usage and various deployment techniques. Visitors to the booth will get a chance to interact with these innovative products, and even get a chance to test fly some of the latest software applications.
