Goodrich receives FMS contract from US Air Force

Aerospace and defence supplier Goodrich has received a foreign military sale (FMS) contract from the US Air Force to provide its advanced DB-110 airborne reconnaissance system for the Egyptian Air Force’s new Block 52 F-16 fighter aircraft.

Work will be performed by the company’s ISR systems team in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, US.

The DB-110 tactical reconnaissance system captures images day and night using electro-optical/infrared sensor technology then transmits them in real-time to analysts on the ground.

Egypt is the eighth country to select Goodrich’s DB-110 system.
