With a global footprint, we design and produce the major systems and assemblies that airline manufacturers such as Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, and Northrop Grumman require in order to assemble and ship their products - the commercial aircraft we ride in and the jets, tanks and helicopters that serve in our nation’s defense. Collins Aerospace manifactures everything from the galley stoves that heat your food to the air systems that keep you breathing at 30,000 feet to the sensors and controls that pilots use to navigate safely to your destination. In the current world, Collins Aerospace is pioneering touchless technology and information webs to facilitate and enhance your airport experiences as well.
