Goodrich to supply additional products for MRJ

  • 10-Jan-2011 02:37 EST

The Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) is a family of 70- to 90-seat next-generation regional jets being developed by Mitsubishi Aircraft. The MRJ is expected to significantly reduce fuel consumption, noise, and emissions.

Goodrich Corp. signed an agreement with Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp. to supply air data sensors, ice detectors, and windshield heat controllers for the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) aircraft family. Goodrich will deliver the first flight-test hardware in mid-2011. The Goodrich flight-critical air data sensors include aerodynamically compensated pitot-static probes, digital angle-of-attack sensors, and total air temperature sensors. The ice detectors advise flight crews of ice buildup for activation of the aircraft's ice protection system. The internally mounted windshield heat controllers ensure the windshield remains free of condensation and ice. The controllers help conserve power by regulating and distributing only the level of power required.
