Leonardo’s Maritime Expertise on Show at Seafuture 2018

From Surveillance to Unmanned Systems – Comprehensive Coverage


At the Seafuture 2018 event in La Spezia, Italy, this week, Leonardo is joining in the debate surrounding the future of the naval industry, highlighting its ability to effectively support Italian excellence in the maritime domain. It is showcasing its comprehensive range of maritime solutions, from surveillance and defensive systems to remotely-piloted aircraft, helicopters and maritime patrol aircraft. The remotely-piloted AWHERO helicopter will be a particular feature of the company’s presentation at Seafuture.

Over the last 50 years, more than 70 navies around the world have chosen Leonardo systems and technologies to equip over 1,000 vessels. Some of these technologies and systems will be shown on-board the FASAN frigate, the first Italian FREMM-class vessel to be configured for ASW missions. Docked at La Spezia, the FASAN will play host to a number of seminars on the next generation of naval technologies, in which Leonardo will participate. During the event, Leonardo will present innovative solutions including: ‘cyber security-by-design’ in the maritime context; resistance to electromagnetic attacks; interoperability with autonomous and remotely-piloted systems; and a new concept of service provision, which takes into account ‘logistics 4.0’. Of special relevance will be a debate on strategies for a European common defence, in which Leonardo will present an update on the OCEAN2020 programme, which it leads at the European level. Leonardo will also present MORPHEUS, an immersive virtual reality solution for training naval crews in operational and maintenance procedures, faithfully representing the real equipment used on-board ships.

Leonardo’s technologies provide customers with complete awareness in the maritime domain. This covers the underwater environment, for which the company produces advanced sensors, torpedoes and remotely-piloted vehicles; the surface environment, for which it supplies naval and coastal surveillance, radars and maritime traffic control and management systems; and in the air, with Leonardo providing fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft to maritime and coastal authorities for patrol and search and rescue missions. In space, Leonardo also provides platforms and technologies for Earth observation missions.

Leonardo has expertise in combat and combat management systems for naval units of all sizes and for all mission types. The company’s portfolio includes state-of-the-art C2 systems, which integrate radar and other surveillance sensors, as well as defensive systems that combat threats above and below the surface. Leonardo can also provide internal and external communications systems, as well as systems that can identify unknown vessels. All of these solutions embody the principles of dual-use, making them available for both military and civil security customers. The systems Leonardo offers are scalable and modular and can be integrated onto vessels of any class, enabling the company to respond effectively to modernisation and refit requirements.
