Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

A safe and efficient system for air passenger and cargo transportation, inclusive of small package delivery and other unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) services, supports movement toward increasingly autonomous operations.

As a leading provider of actuation systems for all sizes of aircraft, Collins Aerospace is uniquely positioned to offer compete stick to surface capability. We are constantly looking for new ways to apply our state-of-the-art technologies, such as our fly-by-wire solutions, which now have more 10 billion flight hours with this type of actuation.

Applying more than 50 years of flight control experience to urban air mobility (UAM), we work alongside some of the industry’s most innovative companies to develop solutions for a number of platform specifications. They include tilt-rotor, multi-rotor and lift and cruise air vehicles.

Our electric actuation solutions include electro-mechanical actuators controlled by servo-valves or direct-drive valves, which have been used on a range of aircraft. These high-quality electric solutions are:  

  • Low cost
  • Certified airworthy
  • Lightweight
  • Low noise
  • Produced at high volumes

We are also supporting the United States Air Force Agility Prime initiative, which aims to accelerate eVTOL technology. We are developing applicable actuation technologies to help the vehicles accelerate commercial viability and achieve FAA certification.
