CHARLOTTE, N.C. Collins Aerospace's Perigon flight-control computer will be a part of the Lockheed Martin Sikorsky-Boeing DEFIANT X advanced utility helicopter, a finalist for the U.S. Army’s Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) competition.
VITA 90 is a new small-form-factor (SFF) standard that is a direct descendant of VITA 74, an inherently rugged module standard with a compelling space, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) proposition, and aimed at use in many military and aerospace applications. Recently, this standard has been causing quite a ruckus within the MIL-rugged embedded systems community, as VITA 90 has been selected by a government-led consortium of manufacturers and integrators for inclusion in the new Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) Technical Standard.
SINGAPORE. Collins Aerospace has signed a long-term agreement with Hainan Airlines to provide Pitot and Total Air Temperatures sensors (Air Data Sensors) for its fleet of 500 aircraft, including the Airbus A320, Airbus A330 and Boeing 737NG.
ROCKFORD, Ill. Boeing has selected Collins Aerospace, a Raytheon Technologies company, as part of the U.S. Air Force's ongoing modernization efforts to keep the B-52 bomber flying into the 2050s by upgrading the aircraft with a new electric power generation system (EPGS).
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa. Collins Aerospace recently performed a demonstration of possible applications of its resilient networking, intelligent sensing, and secure autonomous processing capabilities for the U.S. Army and joint services that could potentially support Army modernization and CJADC2 (Combined Joint All Domain Command and Control) initiatives.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. Collins Aerospace has been selected by the Brazilian Army to provide its high frequency (HF) cellular communications system as part of the Brazilian Army Border Surveillance and Monitoring Strategic Program (SISFRON) to improve communications capabilities for forces operating in the Amazon region.
Knowing your exact location, how you got there, and how to get back are luxuries that the military on the move doesn’t always have the option to exercise. The satellite-based Global Positioning System (GPS) – such a staple of modern navigation – is undeniably a technological feat but can become an exploitable weakness when manipulated by an adversary. Technologies designed to operate in GPS-denied environments are being engineered in response to the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) need to operate in areas where navigational infrastructures simply cannot exist.
