CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) at next week's Heli-Expo will showcase advanced helicopter technology that brings real-time information to air crews and lower operating costs to owners along with enhanced safety and rescue systems. Heli-Expo 2011 takes place at the Orange County Convention Center on March 5-8 in Orlando, Fla.
Goodrich (booth 2142) will display its HUMS (Health and Usage Management Systems), helicopter health monitoring and management systems that provide actionable data, from flight line maintenance teams all the way to the manufacturer. Precise data provided by the system can alert the user to take small corrective actions to prevent future costly maintenance; in addition, it advises of unavoidable future maintenance tasks so the user can plan and minimize operational impact.
In addition, Goodrich will showcase its rotating flexible main drive shaft, a light weight one-piece welded construction drive shaft that transmits power at speeds up to 27,000 RPM while accommodating all misalignments. Long length, super-critical tail rotor drive shafts and titanium couplings will be shown alongside. Stop by and see why Goodrich's advanced helicopter drive systems provide the industry's highest reliability and lowest direct operating costs.
Also on display is the Goodrich TASE family of low cost gyro-stabilized camera gimbals, ideal for surveillance, inspection, law enforcement, fire fighting and environmental monitoring. The camera gimbals come standard with features that include built-in moving maps, geo-pointing and geo-locating along with command/control/record software and joystick steering for operator ease of use and simple camera orientation.
Advanced safety and rescue systems will include internal and external mount rescue hoists, fully integrated ice detection and protection systems, and the new Crashworthy Passenger Seat for installation on multiple helicopter platforms.
With a commitment to ongoing cost reduction and performance improvement for operators, Goodrich will show its Diamond Range (TM) line of brushes with guaranteed 1,000 hour life for DC starter generators with a complete network of Authorized Repair Center locations for overhaul and installation.
