More about Elbit-Kollsman, world class manufacturer of precision avionics flight instruments
In 1928, Paul Kollsman changed the world of aviation with the invention of the world’s first accurate barometric altimeter. The next year, legendary flyer Jimmy Doolittle used it to demonstrate the feasibility of “blind flight.” This simple instrument became a vital element of aviation safety and technology, and over time became known throughout aviation as the “Kollsman Window.” It enabled the widespread growth of commercial flight, and along with many other Kollsman products eventually became part of virtually every aircraft produced in the Western world. For over 80 years, the company has borne the name of its founder, Kollsman, Inc. Today, Kollsman systems can be found worldwide still delivering the highest standards of quality, performance, accuracy, and reliability combined with exceptional product support.
Kollsman, Inc., now an Elbit Systems of America (ESA) company, has supplied products for space exploration on US Apollo missions, and its sextant was instrumental in returning the astronauts safely to earth on the Apollo 13 mission. In many ways, Kollsman has led the industry in the design, development, manufacture and certification of avionics and electro-optic systems for both commercial and military aircraft. Its advanced technology products improve aircraft operations and safety, in both today’s and tomorrow’s Next Generation airspace. The underlying philosophy of Kollsman systems is that by seamlessly combining integrated components into a cohesive intuitive cockpit platform, all flights become inherently safer regardless of the external cockpit environment. Its products ensure a continuing legacy of significant safety improvements in the way pilots fly, improving aircraft operations and safety during taxi, take-off and landing in low visibility conditions.
Kollsman today is a leading developer and manufacturer of Enhanced Vision Systems and Head-Up Displays, among many other products, providing innovative technologies and vision-based systems to the commercial and military aerospace market. Kollsman’s product lines for business, commercial and general aviation still include the production of many of their legacy air data instruments that are based on the fundamental technology first demonstrated by Paul Kollsman. Today, the company is guided by its motto, “Nothing is safer than seeing.” ™
