    Historical Context
    Arthur Collins (whose printed signature appears on this document) first won national acclaim in 1925 by maintaining reliable communications with a scientific expedition to Greenland. Just 15 years old at the time, he accomplished this feat using a hand-built radio. In 1933 he formed the Collins Radio Company, the predecessor of Rockwell Collins. One year later he entered the national spotlight again, providing voice communications for Admiral Byrd’s historic expedition to Antarctica.

    The Collins Radio Company entered the 1930s aerospace industry with a splash by developing an autotune system that literally revolutionized aircraft communications. This innovation would save thousands of American lives during World War II by preventing the enemy from jamming or intercepting radio transmissions by American pilots.

    Significant milestones fill the entire history of Collins Radio. A few of those include:

    Completing the first transmission of a message using Ultra-High-frequency signals bounced off the moon.

    Completing the very first two-way voice transmission via artificial satellite. A week later, the first image, a wire photo of President Eisenhower, was sent over the same path, foretelling the dawn of our modern satellite television industry.

    Collins Radio equipment bringing the famous words of Neil Armstrong, "That’s one small step for man, and one giant leap for mankind," back to a world anxious to hear from our astronauts on the lunar surface.
