Collins Aerospace Perigon™

More capabilities. Endless possibilities.

Our Perigon™ next-generation flight control and vehicle management computing solution is a revolutionary technology offering advanced computing power, open-system architecture and flexible configurability supporting future needs across a broad range of applications.

As a leader in flight control technology, Collins flight control computers are currently used on thousands of military and commercial rotorcraft worldwide. Now, with Perigon™, we’re enabling flight control systems integration through a highly configurable solution backed by flexible, high-power computing.

A new generation of high-power computing

With up to three high-integrity, multi-core processors, Perigon™ can provide 20 times the computing power of our current flight control computers. Opening the door to advanced fly-by-wire control, deeper system integration for space-, weight- and cost-savings, and more ways to reduce pilot workload.

Perigon™ gives you maximum flexibility and scalability, combining multiple processor configurations, including options for simplex, duplex and triplex redundancy, and high-power computing with an open-system architecture allowing you to host complex software applications to meet your integration needs now and into the future.

Highly configurable solution

Optimized to meet flight and vehicle control needs, Perigon™ is available in a variety of configurations. Our solution offers unparalleled processing power and open architecture facilitating capabilities for hosting complex third-party software and applications. Applications include autonomy, UAV, DVE operation, cybersecurity, fly-by-wire, systems management and more. Perigon™ also allows for robust software partitioning and reconfigurable I/O for simple affordable updates addressing vendor lock.
