Goodrich has been awarded a five-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract by the US Army for the procurement of additional AN/AVR-2A(V) Laser Warning System components.

Goodrich ISR Systems vice president Andreas Nonnenmacher said the $47m contract allows for the supply and support of vital aircraft survivability technology, while continuing production of the next generation system.

The AN/AVR-2A(V) is the predecessor of Goodrich's latest aviation laser warning systems, the AN/AVR-2B(V), and enhances aircraft survivability by detecting multiple laser aided threats and weapons systems.

The system can interface with the multiple integrated laser engagement system, air-to-ground engagement system II (MILES-AGES II) training system to provide pilots with combat tactical training.

The company has delivered more than 1,500 AN/AVR-2A(V) systems to the US and other armed forces around the world.
