Collins Aerospace tackles the toughest challenges in aerospace and defence. We’re combining boundless imagination with a broad portfolio to make the skies and spaces we touch smarter and safer than ever. We are redefining aerospace.
Collins integrated systems for military flight decks (including Flight 2 ™ and Pro Line Fusion ™ ) feature intuitive graphical human-machine interfaces, extensive situational awareness capabilities and straightforward integration with other aircraft systems. Collins are a leader in integrated hazard surveillance systems that provide aviators with accurate and reliable detection of multiple hazards including weather, traffic and terrain.
Collins is a leading provider of fielded, combat proven situational awareness and integrated precision targeting software suites for indirect fire missions. These include the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) Digital Terminal Control System (DTCS) based on our leading-edge FasTAK architecture and the FasTAK-enabled, Australian-developed and operationally-proven Patrol Persistent Surveillance System (PPSS) providing the ADF with a rapidly deployable meshed network of unattended sensors that monitor movement, sound and vibration allowing for rapid response to intruders and incursions.
Collins airborne and ground-based communication systems transmit nearly 70 percent of all US and allied military airborne communications. Providing full spectrum connectivity for military users in the air, on the ground and at sea, including H/U/VHF communication solutions, tactical datalinks, airborne satellite communications, software defined radios, tactical gateways, waveforms and networking solutions.
Collins simulation and training systems and products span the training continuum from part-task trainers through to fully integrated, high fidelity solutions for commercial and military applications. We have developed, manufactured and commissioned high fidelity Joint Terminal Attack Controller simulation devices across the country, and provide on-site operator support at 7 locations across Australia. Our Joint Secure Air Combat Training System (JSAS) provides the first certified, four-level Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) training equipment in both airborne and ground equipment, allowing for tethered and autonomous operations. MILS provides secure interoperability between 5th-Gen and 4th-Gen aircraft, bringing significant training benefits to all participants in a simulated, high-threat combat environment. Furthermore, JSAS supports LVC training now.
In addition to systems engineering, program management and logistics expertise, our Sydney facility manufactures state-of-the-art F-35 Electro Optic Distributed Aperture System (EO/DAS) Optical Assembly (OA) and ProSim projector assemblies. Collins also maintains a component level workshop supporting communications and navigation equipment, and warehousing facilities providing fleet management support to the ADF.
