No Reference[edit]

This article seems to lack of objectivity. No references are provided. It requires improvement.

Some claims are wrong. In 1960, neither the R-390 nor the R-390A were classified. There is no sign that the the military specification was ever classified. The R-392, a 28VDC version of the 390 is not mentioned. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:45, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Merge with Collins Radio Company[edit]

Voting pro - both pages are kind of stubby, and it's still the same basic company. --BonzoESC 23:55, 20 October 2005 (UTC)

No they are quite seperate companies now!

No - Collins Radio no longer exists, it was bought by North American Rockwell, which after other acquisitions became Rockwell International, which then split into two new companies: Rockwell Automation and Rockwell Collins. Rockwell Collins includes the parts of Rockwell International that came from the old Collins Radio, but also many other Rockwell International and Rockwell Collins acquisitions. -- RTC 21:24, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

Removed the merge request. The correct merger is between Collins Radio and Collins Radio Company. -- RTC 00:44, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Yes - I feel the merger request would be correct. Collins today is basically the same company in the same location and making the same products (excepting amateur radio gear and minicomputers, the exit from both being prevailing industry trends) as the original Collins Radio Company. What other parts of RI were included in the Rockwell Collins spinoff? --Warphammer 17:54, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

No - The merge between Collins Radio and Collins Radio Company is correct, but there are several parts of the original Collins Radio Company that are in Rockwell Automation, and Rockwell International, and some additional that was created after the Merger with North American that were spun off into Rockwell Collins. I am a Rockwell Employee and may be able to find internal documentation to this effect if someone needs more proof, but due to confidentiality and security reasons I cannot incorporate those documents into the article.

The company that was Rockwell International essentially split into 3 main parts. The Hughes Aircraft and North American parts of Rockwell International were effectively sold to Boeing. Rockwell Automation and Rockwell Collins were spun off into two similarly sized companies that are focused on different products and markets. The statement that the "core" of Rockwell Collins is the old Collins Radio Company is true, with significant expansion of the product suite via acquiring companies like Kaiser and Airshow.

Merge Flight Dynamics here?[edit]

Does anyone object? Can someone closer to the subject do the work? Carl M. Anglesea (talk) 17:08, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Datapath Acquisition[edit]

As of 1 June, 2009 RC has completed the acquisition of Datapath Inc. I'm not entirely sure how or where to integrate this into the article. Someone wants to point me in the right direction or do it themselves, here's some more info: —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ds2600 (talkcontribs) 05:30, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

Incomplete Coverage[edit]

There is extensive coverage of Collins Radio's commercial equipment, but other than the R-390 and some oblique references to the use of Collins equipment in the space program, none of their military equipment is mentioned. Nenielsen (talk) 06:37, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
