Goodrich is a world leader in designing and manufacturing helicopter rescue hoist and cargo aircraft winch systems.
Goodrich Sensors and Integrated Systems is a world leader in developing, manufacturing, and supporting helicopter rescue hoist and aircraft cargo winch systems. We are the only hoist and winch manufacturer that produces both traditional level wind and industry unique translating drum cable management systems. These types of hoist and winch technologies are used around the world for critical rescue missions and cargo handling by the U.S. and international coast guards, U.S. Army, foreign and domestic armed forces, and paramilitary forces, such as police, firefighters, medical evacuation crews, and other local municipalities. Our rescue hoists have field proven success in high demand, extreme environment missions and have been instrumental in saving lives in several worldwide disaster relief efforts.
As a leading helicopter rescue hoist and cargo winch designer and manufacturer, Goodrich Sensors and Integrated Systems continues to support and improve rescue capabilities by increasing field support and training to keep rescue teams operational. As part of the Goodrich global network of service centers and innovative design centers, we have the most comprehensive knowledge base to serve the growing needs of the search and rescue community.
We continually develop industry-leading products that increase performance, reliability, and operational efficiency while reducing operational and lifecycle costs. Goodrich Sensors and Integrated Systems is the only manufacturer of the translating drum hoist and winch technology which is critical for operations at extreme fleet angles. Extreme fleet angles are generated spontaneously from pitching decks, swift water, high winds, obstacles, terrain, or a multitude of circumstances beyond the operating crews’ control and during extreme environmental conditions that are typical during a disaster relief effort.
