With the right perspective, we can see past traditional boundaries and
uncover new opportunities to make aerospace more sustainable. At Collins
Aerospace, that perspective comes from a holistic view of the aircraft and our
position as a provider of components across all aspects of flight.
We provide flight control actuation, cockpit controls, cabin pressure and
control, electric systems, fire protection, emergency power, cockpit and
exterior lighting, wheels and brakes, cargo systems, fuel systems, avionics and air data sensors. We also offer structural components – like our leading-edge nacelles and struts – and cabin and seating technologies for commercial, business and military markets – and the list goes on.
This breadth of technology – amplified by our ongoing investment in advanced
engineering design tools and model-based engineering – provides our engineers
with a unique view into aircraft system design and its impact on sustainability.
A systems perspective allows us to find integration opportunities that simplify
a system, eliminate parts, reduce weight, improve efficiency and increase
Our teams are developing an all-electric actuator that can enable a more
electric, thinner wing design.
