Goodrich Receives UK MOD Contract for Aircraft Support

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 25, 2010

Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) has received a follow-on contract worth over 7 million pounds Sterling (approximately US $10 million) from the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) for Performance Based Logistics (PBL). The contract continues a decade of support for a number of legacy instruments used on a range of UK jets and helicopters in operational service. The contract was awarded to Plymouth, UK-based Atlantic Inertial Systems (AIS), which became part of Goodrich's Sensors and Integrated Systems in December 2009.

"A decade ago our Plymouth business was one of the first recipients of a PBL contract in the UK," said Jim Chapman, VP Operations, Atlantic Inertial Systems. "We believe this follow-on contract is a testimony to the quality and efficiency of the support we have provided to the RAF since that time," he added.

Goodrich's AIS team is a leading provider of mission-critical guidance, navigation and stabilization products and systems for military and commercial markets. In addition to design, development and production of MEMS devices and the TERPROM® software system, the AIS Plymouth, UK operation provides spares, repairs and obsolescence management for legacy equipment.
