Our TELDIX® Space Wheels deliver the ultimate in advanced satellite stabilization in nearly 350 launched satellites, representing more than 7,300 years of in-orbit operation. So if worlds beyond our own fuel your imagination, a career at Collins Aerospace could be a great fit.
10X Innovation Program
Collins Aerospace’s success today and into the future requires an innovative and engaged team, but not every idea can be considered in our formal planning process. Our Advanced Technology Center (ATC) sponsors the 10X Innovation Program, which gives every employee the opportunity to propose a new technology solution that could create a revolutionary improvement to our company’s capability or competitiveness. The projects span several idea-stimulating categories, including:
- 10X improvement to an existing product or system
- Significant cost avoidance
- High-risk ideas creating high-payoff business potential
In addition to receiving ideas from employees and customers for new products, the ATC collaborates with government research and academic institutions so you can be sure that our dedication to innovation will continue well into the future, providing significant opportunities for career growth and exciting new advancements and discoveries.
