Mission-ready solutions. Ready made in Canada.

Warfighters and commercial users alike depend on: intelligent and secure communications; robust data links and assured navigation; missionized systems for specialized aircraft and spacecraft; collaborative Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR); simulation and training systems; mechanical systems; and advanced interior solutions.

To more fully address such highly technical needs, aero­space leaders – UTC Aerospace Systems and Rockwell Collins – joined to become Collins Aerospace (Collins) in 2018. The Collins focus is aimed to deliver military, government and civil solutions to help its Canadian Armed Forces and commercial customers safely and successfully complete their most complex and critical missions.

The company’s commitment is exemplified by its on­going investment and collaboration with Canadian firms and research institutions across the country for the development, production and support of advanced avionics, landing gears, and communications systems. The combined company employs more than 1,200 personnel across the country at key facilities in Ottawa (Mission Systems), Oakville (Landing Gears), Winnipeg (Interiors), and Montreal (Avionics).

The flexibility and customizability of its products are seen as key advantages, allowing the company to exceed the requirements of a growing base of commercial and military customers in Canada. Innovation continues to enhance its capabilities, providing systems and complete solutions while leveraging domestic product lines, support capabilities, and communications engineering expertise. From its Ottawa facility, for example, Collins is leading the development and deployment of its new Wideband HF communication system, as well as its wireless, ad-hoc networking technologies – for use in Canada and for global export.
