Drawing upon the expertise of highly qualified engineers, technicians and production workers, we are an established premier supplier of customized complex electronics on high profile military aircraft programs and one of the world leaders in space wheel technology. Rockwell Collins in Germany also provides integrated navigation and communication systems for a wide range of military applications. Our systems engineering group, established several years ago, has enabled us to expand our portfolio from a box supplier to a subsystem integrator that is familiar with the system architectures of our customers’ platforms.
Rockwell Collins was one of the first companies in Germany to design electronic displays for aircraft and our experience with special-purpose computers uniquely positioned us to develop and produce the head-up display and missile control system for the Tornado aircraft.
We are a core supplier for Eurofighter mission computers and we have a product line that uses a common core concept to cover a wide range of platforms and applications, from low cost up to high reliability.
