Redefining Mission Performance

In the Air and at Sea

At Collins Aerospace, we’re redefining aerospace and making the impossible come to life. Together, through collaboration with our military customers and OEM partners, we’re making more possible with our military flight control surfaces.

Through a number of advanced technologies, including aluminum GRID-LOCK®, out-of-autoclave thermoset and thermoplastic composite manufacturing processes, we’re developing flight control surfaces that make aircraft lighter – enabling faster mission speeds and reduced fuel burn; and stronger – reducing maintenance and life cycle costs.

Our 18,000+ offerings include both primary and secondary flight control surface design and manufacturing services. Surfaces include:

  • Ailerons
  • Rudders
  • Elevators
  • Flaps
  • Slats
  • Spoilers
  • Horizontal stabilators

SHHH…

Our advanced acoustic technologies don’t just support the stringent noise reduction requirements for next-generation aircraft, but also enhance the fuel burn reduction potential of those aircraft as well.

APT (Advanced Perforate Technologies) investments by Collins Aerospace has led to the development of advanced acoustic technologies that build on the industry-leading design and manufacturing capabilities that we bring and that our customers rely on.
