Collins Aerospace to Showcase Major Technologies at Dubai Airshow
Collins Aerospace, one of the four business units of Raytheon Technologies, will be participating at the Dubai Airshow 2021.
Considered one of the largest aerospace and defense companies in the world, Raytheon Technologies was formed after the April 2020 merger between the former United Technologies and the Raytheon Company. In addition to Collins Aerospace, the company also includes three other businesses with a strong footprint across the defense industry: Pratt and Whitney, Raytheon Missiles and Defense and Raytheon Intelligence and Space.
Collins will be showcasing its latest in commercial aviation, namely the solutions that can help create a more seamless travel experience for passengers and more efficient, sustainable operations for airline operators.
The company will also be demonstrating its current and next-generation military solutions, including
- Its Enhanced Vision System (EVS-3600) that uses multiple wave-length cameras in head-up displays to enable safer, low-profile terrain flying in hazardous and low-visibility conditions. The EVS also uses heat signatures to aid search and rescue operations.
- Intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance solutions, including its MS-110 system, which offers multispectral imaging in multiple visual and IR bands.
- Modernization options for the Lockheed Martin C-130, including the EVS, as well as upgrades to wheels and brakes, propellers, avionics, seating, mission equipment, ground systems and maintenance support.
- The ACES 5, Collins’ next-generation ejection seat, with multi-platform compatibility.
- Advancements in aerostructures materials and design that can help reduce weight and drag on an aircraft, while enhancing power and payload.
In terms of its presence in the METNA (Middle East, Turkey, and Africa) region today, Collins Aerospace has 15 entities, including a regional headquarters in the UAE. Collins also reports having more than 400 employees living in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and other countries in the region, with most of those jobs in engineering, field support and program management. Collins says it supports approximately 1000 indirect jobs in the region, as well.
And, in 2019, in partnership with regional leaders, Emirates Airlines and other key aviation companies, Collins Aerospace helped create the Aviation X-Lab to promote industry collaboration on solutions to improve the air travel experience for passengers and stakeholders across the globe.
Collins will be in booth number 1160 in the Exhibition Hall at the Dubai Air Show 2021.
