Goodrich Operationally Responsive Space Satellite Program Moves Forward

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The U.S. Air Force has authorized continued development of the Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) program that features Goodrich Corporation’s (NYSE: GR) satellite. This build authorization follows a successful critical design review that Goodrich completed eight months from the beginning of the contract – a remarkable achievement for such a complex and capable system. Satellite delivery and launch are on schedule to occur in 2010. Work is being performed by Goodrich’s ISR Systems business in Danbury, Conn.

The Goodrich ORS Sat-1 satellite system will provide color pictures of regions selected by ground force commanders, and use existing ground systems to process and distribute the images and other information out to the battlefield. The system is designed to support urgent military needs, while establishing a foundation that will advance the multi-mission modular approach required for future ORS satellites.

“Goodrich is committed to on-time delivery of an extremely capable operational satellite to meet the immediate needs of our military,” said Andreas Nonnenmacher, vice president and general manager for Goodrich ISR Systems. “Our ISR Systems team is on track to meet its next major milestones, including satellite delivery and launch in 2010.”
