Sikorsky Selects Goodrich Rescue Hoist System for H-92 Canadian Maritime Helicopter Project

    CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 12 /CNW/ -- Sikorsky Aircraft has selected Goodrich
Corporation (NYSE:   GR) to provide rescue hoist systems for the H-92 Canadian
Maritime Helicopter Project. The aircraft will be used by the Canadian
government for anti-submarine patrol, surveillance duties and utility roles
such as search and rescue, cargo and personnel transport.  The rescue hoist
systems, offered as optional equipment by Sikorsky for the S-92, include
Category One externally-mounted single and dual, AC electric rescue hoists and
support structures.
    Goodrich's hoist and winch team produces both traditional level wind and
industry-unique translating drum cable management systems. Because the mission
capabilities of the design concepts are so unique, Goodrich distinguishes
between the technologies by category distinctions -- translating drum as
Category One and the traditional level wind as Category Two. Goodrich is the
only manufacturer of the Category One technology in the world.
    "We are proud to work with Sikorsky to supply our rescue hoists for use
on the Canadian Maritime Helicopter Project," said Pablo Ocasio, Business
Development Director, Goodrich Sensors and Integrated Systems. "This award
further serves to enhance our relationship with Sikorsky and ensures that
helicopter operators around the world are working with the safest, most
reliable technology available," he added.
    Goodrich Sensors and Integrated Systems provides a broad range of systems
to the aerospace industry worldwide including SmartProbe(TM) air data systems,
Electronic Flight Bag systems, security and surveillance systems, fuel
measurement and management systems, health and usage management systems, ice
detection and protection systems and rescue hoists and cargo winches.
