Goodrich Gets Blackhawk Contract

Will Provide Critical Standby Equipment

Sikorsky Aircraft Company has given Charlotte-based Goodrich Corporation the nod for a long-term contract to provide an Electronic Standby Instrument System for the U.S. Army's fleet of over 1,200 Black Hawk aircraft. The addition of this equipment is part of an upgrade of the fleet to the UH-60M helicopter and will also include Goodrich's Emergency Power Supply and Stormscope lightning detection system.

What To Do When The Lights Go Out

The Electronic Standby Instrument System (ESIS) GH-3001 combines all critical flight cues -- attitude, altitude, airspeed and heading -- in one 3" display. It visually matches the look and format of the aircraft's Primary Multi-Function Display (MFD). The ESIS GH-3001 uses a full-color, active matrix liquid crystal display that allows for readability in direct sunlight as well as in dark cockpit environments. The multi-function display also allows for clear off-axis viewing and anti-aliasing of graphics with clear readouts at any attitude as well as Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatibility.

In the event of an electrical failure, the Goodrich Emergency Power Supply model PS-855C is capable of supplying power to the ESIS GH-3001, with surplus power output available to run additional emergency equipment if tied into the emergency bus. The Emergency Power Supply is designed to withstand rigorous operating requirements, including resistance to thermal shock and high charge and discharge rates, and is designed to require minimal maintenance.

Keeping An Eye On Weather

Displaying lightning information at ranges out to 200 nmi, the Stormscope WX-500 is designed to interface directly with the Collins MultiFunction Display. Operating in a passive detection mode, the Stormscope locates thunderstorm activity by analyzing the radiated signals of electrical discharges from storm cells. Its ability to determine both azimuth and range is made possible through complex algorithms. These provide the reference information for the Stormscope to analyze the unique characteristics of the signals, their strength and their varying rates of recurrence. This information is then processed to determine the location and intensity of dangerous thunderstorm cells.
