Goodrich Receives IDIQ Contract to Procure Laser Warning Systems

The US Army has awarded an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) deal to Goodrich to purchase additional AN/AVR-2A(V) Laser Warning System parts.

The contract, which is estimated to be valued at $47 million, is a five-year deal. The AN/AVR-2A(V) improves the survival of aircraft by sensing numerous laser aided weapons and threat systems.

Goodrich's AN/AVR-2A(V) Laser Warning System parts

Goodrich’s ISR Systems, based in Danbury, Connecticut, will deliver the laser system parts. The company has been manufacturing the AN/AVR-2A(V) since 1995 and is an antecedent to the new model of Goodrich aviation laser warning systems called the AN/AVR-2B(V). Both laser systems can detect rangefinder, beam rider laser-aided weapons systems and target designators and can perform numerous aircraft signal interfaces.

The AN/AVR-2A(V) can also interface with the Air-to-Ground Engagement System II (MILES-AGES II) training system and the Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System to offer battlefield tactical training that almost replicates weapon engagements.

Over the past two and half decades, Goodrich and its predecessor firms have supplied more than 8,500 aviation and ground laser warning systems to the US and other military forces across the globe and over 1,500 AN/AVR-2A(V) systems have been supplied.
