First to Fly Electric Brakes
UTC Aerospace Systems is the recognized leader in electric brake technology, having launched its development efforts more than a decade ago. In 1998, Goodrich successfully flew a full-authority electro-mechanical brake system on a USAF fighter aircraft – an industry first. In 2007, Goodrich became the first supplier to have a full-authority electro-mechanical brake system in production with the introduction on a Military unmanned (UAV) aircraft. Our experience has afforded us a host of “lessons learned” that have been applied to the world's first commercial application of this technology on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
As a result, the Goodrich 787 electro-mechanic brake system is: smarter, more durable and easier to maintain
