/PRNewswire/ -- Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) will showcase a full range of advanced systems for commercial aircraft, defense and space applications at the Farnborough International Airshow 2012, which takes place in Farnborough, UK on July 9-15.
The Goodrich pavilion (outside OE4, located between hall 1 and chalet rows A and B) will prominently feature a fully inflated life raft from its Winslow product range, used by leading corporate and business aircraft manufacturers, and custom-designed to fit in a variety of aircraft interior configurations. Completing the advanced safety and rescue systems display are rescue hoists and the Goodrich ACES 5™ ejection seat, which builds on the legacy ACES II® ejection seat's one-of-a-kind stability package, lower life cycle costs and proven safety record.
Goodrich is also displaying a C-130 boltless wheel and its Boeing 737 Next Generation DURACARB® carbon brake system. The DURACARB brake provides eight times longer brake life and six times longer wheel life than current steel wheel and brake systems. An example of a current-generation thrust reverser actuator will be shown as well as an advanced composite high lift transmission shaft from CTG.
The Goodrich display will feature an MDR-80 mission data recorder with an advanced TERPROM® digital terrain system, the only terrain awareness and warning system of its capability on the market. It successfully blends and interprets the inputs of a diverse array of sensors to provide pilots with full situational awareness, enabling them to fly far more safely and effectively. The real-time simulation will give visitors a chance to see the system in action as they pilot an aircraft across varied terrain.
Visitors will be able to experience the latest systems including Goodrich's SmartDisplay® Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), an easy and affordable way to display GPS-based automatic dependent surveillance broadcast (ADS-B) information, required by the NextGen Air Transportation System.
