ORS-1 Satellite Successfully Launched Aboard a Minotaur 1 Rocket

CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 30, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) the prime contractor for the ORS-1 satellite, announced today that the satellite, built under contract to the U.S. Air Force, was successfully launched from Wallops Island Flight Facility at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport aboard an Orbital Sciences Minotaur 1 rocket. After insertion into the correct orbit the satellite will complete on-orbit checkout before transitioning to operational status.

ORS-1 is the first satellite in the Operationally Responsive Space program designed to support combatant command operations and will provide a battlespace awareness capability supporting U.S. Central Command’s mission needs.

“We are pleased with the successful launch of the first ORS satellite designed and built to support combatant command operations. This development is an extraordinary accomplishment and we are proud to be part of the government/industry team which achieved it,” said Andreas Nonnenmacher, Goodrich ISR Systems vice president, space. “We are looking forward to a smooth and efficient on-orbit checkout of the ORS-1 satellite and a quick transition to operational status for U.S. Central Command.”

Goodrich is the lead systems integrator for the ORS-1 satellite. The payload leverages the Goodrich SYERS-2 multispectral sensor, the primary imaging sensor on the U-2 reconnaissance plane. Goodrich is also providing a ground segment that formats the data from the sensor payload to be compatible with the downstream processing, exploitation and dissemination used for the operational SYERS-2 sensor. The ORS-1 spacecraft bus is built for Goodrich by ATK Space Systems and is based on its TacSat-3 bus.

Goodrich Introduces Enhanced Imagery Stability and Tracking for TASE

PARIS, June 17, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — PARIS AIR SHOW — Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR), has introduced a second generation video processing solution – the VPS II. Bringing together video processing, image stabilization and target tracking in a small low power system, this new product will greatly increase the stability and image range of the Goodrich TASE gimbal family produced at Goodrich’s ISR Systems business in Hood River, Oregon (Cloud Cap Technology) or similar gimbaled camera systems developed by other manufacturers.

Combining new hardware and circuitry with extremely effective new software algorithms, VPS II will provide unprecedented stability in imagery from moving camera systems. In addition to the stability improvements, the system will provide sophisticated new tracking solutions allowing users to designate and track objects along complex paths, when they are concealed and when the object is transitioning (such as a person getting into a car).

This second generation system now enables objects to be identified more easily and from a greater distance, due to the level of stabilization of the image taken from moving platforms such as UAVs, towers and manned aircraft.
