Rockwell Collins has had a presence in France since 1959 and is based in Blagnac, close to Toulouse, to benefit from the local growth of the aerospace industry in this area. Our highly qualified engineers and technicians are working on Airbus projects as well as the development, integration and maintenance of military and commercial solutions for other aircraft manufacturers, airlines, ministries of defense, integrators and other companies in France, in Europe and worldwide. Our key capabilities are: avionics for military transport aircraft, helicopters and UAV systems; commercial avionics; and data communications.
Rockwell Collins works closely with its defense customers in the region to develop and maintain high-technology systems solutions, including: avionics and mission systems for rotary- and fixed wing aircraft and UAV systems in military environments; flight safety solutions; and next-generation communications systems such as software defined radios and data link solutions.
Rockwell Collins has been an Airbus avionics supplier since the 1970s. Our equipment is on board all in-production Airbus aircraft, and our consistently high level of service has earned us a number of Airbus customer performance awards. For the new A350 XWB, we are providing even more content than on any other Airbus aircraft. This includes navigation and data-network capabilities, landing guidance systems, flight control equipment, information management and communications, as well as system integration responsibilities.
The company is also delivering equipment and services to several aircraft and business jet manufacturers and to airline companies.
