At Collins, our teams are leveraging our wide breadth of capabilities and technical expertise to work on platform-wide optimization opportunities. We’re exploring what’s possible now and what we can build on for future enhancements. For example, will a typical pod hoist hanging off the side of a rotorcraft still suffice? How can fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites or out-of-autoclave thermosets contribute to lighter weight structural components and drive systems without compromising on power?
We are asking the right questions to challenge the status quo, as well as leveraging our years of experience and shear breadth of capability to deliver the answers. The technological advancements are at our fingertips –
and ready now – to help design the fastest, lightest, most long-range and powerful rotorcraft in history.
