From an early age, Phil Jasper was fascinated by the space program and anything related to space. That fascination led him to Iowa State where he earned two aerospace degrees (BS ‘90/Master’s ‘91). Starting at Rockwell Collins as an intern, Phil now serves as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer and is a member of Iowa State’s College of Engineering Industrial Advisory Council. He oversees Rockwell Collins’ worldwide defense business, which provides a range of solutions to military and defense agencies globally, including avionics, simulation and training, and integrated communication and navigation systems for protection and national security. “It’s truly rewarding knowing the work we do here is more than just technology. It makes a difference by keeping our world safe, connected and informed.”
