Charlotte, N.C.-based Goodrich Corp., with more than 2,000 employees based in Chula Vista, announced Jan. 18 that it will be supplying systems in support of a U.S. Air Force surveillance program.
Goodrich’s nacelle systems will be used in the “re-engining” of 19 U.S. Air Force surveillance aircraft, intended to improve their fuel efficiency, extend the range and reduce the noise and exhaust emissions.
According to the company, parts for the actual assembly of the nacelles will be purchased through or fabricated by Goodrich’s Chula Vista facility.
Nacelle systems in an aircraft engine include thrust reversers, inlets and exhaust.
Consideration for the deal was undisclosed.
