Goodrich Included on LCS Team

Wednesday, July 30, 2003
Goodrich Corporation is a member of the Raytheon-led team recently selected by the U.S. Navy to finalize preliminary designs of a Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) -- the next- generation surface combatant. The team has seven-months to finalize designs. In addition to Raytheon as the prime contractor, the team consists of Goodrich's Jacksonville, Florida-based Engineered Polymer Products division along with John J. McMullen and Associates, Umoe Mandal, and Atlantic Marine, Inc. The foundation for the team's design is an all-composite ship with a twin-hull/catamaran design using the latest in composites technology provided by Goodrich. Goodrich's composite expertise, widely in use in other marine applications, will provide lightweight, but yet high-strength, materials to be used in the overall design and construction of the ship. Upon successful completion of the preliminary design, the Navy will award contracts for construction of up to two LCS ships with delivery of the first ship project as early as 2007.
