If you design and build motion systems for use in aircraft or on the battlefield, one overriding principle drives everything you do: Failure is not an option. Surveillance, defense and weapons systems need to respond instantly, accurately and reliably, 100 percent of the time, even under the harshest conditions and most demanding duty cycles.

These systems must also meet requirements of weight, size, efficiency, and performance that go far beyond the needs of typical industrial solutions. Kollmorgen solutions are anything but typical. They’re designed to prevail, by land, sea or air. That’s why, since the founding of our business, we’ve always been a leading motion supplier to aerospace and defense contractors.

Radar Pedestals

Radar Pedestals

The ability to respond quickly to radar tracking images depends on real-time accuracy and high image resolution. And the accuracy and resolution of these images depends on the size of the antenna and the ability to position it with continuous and unfailing precision.

Weapon Stations

Weapon Stations

Mounted on the top of an armored vehicle, the actuator that controls the azimuth and elevation of a weapon station must survive the same conditions of weather, temperature, dust, vibration and shock as the vehicle itself.

Unmanned Vehicles

Unmanned Vehicles

Unmanned ground, aerial and undersea vehicles (UGVs , UAVs and UUVs) have transformed both offensive and defensive capabilities—performing dangerous jobs by remote control without putting personnel in harm’s way.

Missiles & Guided Munitions

In precision strike warfare, accurate targeting is of paramount importance. From the earliest inertial systems through “line-of-sight” systems such as laser or IR guidance, targeting efficiency has continuously improved while putting fewer air crews at risk

Aircraft

Aircraft

Motion control solutions play a wide variety of roles in modern aircraft, from nose to tail, wingtip to wingtip. And virtually every motion application is mission-critical—including elevators and rudders, horizontal stabilizers, satellite tracking systems, braking systems and more. Everything must operate with 100 percent reliability.
