Goodrich systems for Greece

The Hellenic Air Force (HAF) has selected Goodrich’s DB-110 airborne reconnaissance systems, consisting of two reconnaissance pods, a ground exploitation system and aircraft integration, for use on F-16 fighters.



Greece is acquiring 30 Lockheed Martin F-16 Block 52+, advanced multi-role fighters under the Peace Xenia IV Foreign Military Sale (FMS) program.



Goodrich’s DB-110 digital, real-time, tactical reconnaissance system allows pilots to capture images day or night using electro-optical sensor technology. Images can then be transmitted to analysts on the ground in real time for immediate exploitation and analysis.



The DB-110 airborne reconnaissance pods will be manufactured and delivered in the US. Ground exploitation systems will be built in Goodrich’s facility in Malvern, Worcestershire, UK. Both sites are part of Goodrich’s ISR Systems division.



The DB-110 will give the HAF a long-range, high-resolution, stand off imaging capability to support tactical operations. The on-board system can be operated autonomously, with the DB-110 being controlled by the pod’s reconnaissance management system. Imagery is viewed on the F-16’s cockpit video display, enabling the pilot to verify targets and conduct tasks such as battle damage assessment. The real-time display also gives the aircrew the ability to seek out targets or select a different route to a selected target.
