The U.S. Army awarded Goodrich Corp. a five-year contract worth up to $47 million for the procurement of additional AN/AVR-2A(V) Laser Warning System components. The AN/AVR-2A(V) enhances aircraft survivability by detecting multiple laser aided threats and weapons systems. Goodrich's ISR Systems team in Danbury, CT, will supply the components. The AN/AVR-2A(V) has been in production since 1995 and is the predecessor to the latest generation of Goodrich aviation laser warning systems, the AN/AVR-2B(V). Both are capable of multiple aircraft signal interfaces and detect rangefinders, target designators, and beam rider laser-aided weapons systems.
