SYPAQ to Represent Goodrich’s DB-110 Surveillance System in Australia

SYPAQ Systems Pty. Ltd., based in Melbourne, Australia, has signed an agreement with Goodrich Corporation’s ISR Systems team to represent and provide program management for the Goodrich DB-110 reconnaissance system.

This agreement allows Goodrich, whose UK ISR Systems team is based in the Malvern Hills, to offer direct local representation in Australia and New Zealand. This is the second agreement for Goodrich and SYPAQ, adding the DB-110 surveillance system offering to the Goodrich intelligence exploitation system agreement already in place.

The announcement further reinforces Melbourne’s world-class defence offering and its competitive edge as a foreign direct investment location in the Asia-Pacific region.

Sally Capp, Agent-General for Victoria, welcomes the agreement saying: “SYPAQ is an ideal partner to support Goodrich in the expansion of its surveillance system, not least because of its strategic location at the heart of the Asia-Pacific defence industry. Victoria has over 300 businesses in its defence sector ‘cluster’, offers an unrivalled skills base and has a highly competitive R&D tax break to encourage innovation across various sectors including defence, advanced engineering and manufacturing. This presents a fantastic opportunity for both SYPAQ and Goodrich to really develop their businesses in the region.”

Andrew Chrostowski, general manager of Goodrich’s ISR Systems team said, “We now have the team in place to offer a full reconnaissance system with complete local resources in Australia and New Zealand.”

George Vicino, SYPAQ’s managing director commented, “Culminating two years of close collaboration, this agreement marks a significant milestone in the relationship between SYPAQ and Goodrich, and we look forward to our joint success in the region.”

The DB-110 system comprises an airborne pod containing a long-range, dual-band EO/IR imaging sensor, and fixed and mobile intelligence exploitation systems. The day/night sensor is suitable for use on fast-jets, large UAVs and business jets. Ten countries worldwide have already selected the DB-110 for operation, and it has been used very successfully for operations in Afghanistan and Libya.
