New capabilities to protect the Forces in the field on show at Eurosatory 2022

(To Leonardo)

Leonardo returns to Eurosatory (Paris, 13-17 June), the main international fair in the land Defense and Security sector, with a stand - D301 / Hall 6 - dedicated to the latest technologies developed in this area.

As a system integrator of multi-function and multi-domain capabilities, Leonardo presents a complete offer ranging from sensors to acquire information and awareness of the scenario to the management of operations through a set of effectors, which are characterized by high levels of precision and effectiveness .

Among the sensors, the new AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) TMMR radar which, together with the NERIO electro-optical chamber, represents an effective solution for anti-drone scenarios that require mobility and rapid deployment, but also for short-range air defense, for the surveillance and protection of platforms and vehicles, borders, territories and critical infrastructures. Among the radars, Leonardo also presents the Kronos in the fixed and mobile versions, a reference point for air surveillance and defense, with about 50 units currently in service around the world.

Also on display are some of the military communications systems of the SWave SDR (Software Defined Radio) family, which includes handheld radios - of which tens of thousands of units have been sold worldwide - portable and vehicular. These are technologies that enable the interoperability of the Land Forces, especially when they are engaged in joint multinational operations, thanks to the ability to use the same platform, which can be reprogrammed via software, for multiple communication needs, even in very diversified scenarios.

Leonardo is also at the forefront of the latest requirements in the field of medium armored vehicles: in Paris the company will present its technologies on board the 8x8 Centauro II rotated vehicle along with an integrated offer for the upgrade of tanks already in service, like the M60. This includes the large-caliber turret HITFACT MKII, installed on the Centaur II.

At Eurosatory there will also be stabilization and navigation systems for military vehicles from GEM, a company of which Leonardo has recently acquired 30%; the Vulcano family of guided ammunition, one of the most innovative technologies on a world scale; and the Type 163 laser designator, a high-energy system already field-tested with over 800 units already delivered to 27 countries, including a large number of NATO nations.

Finally, an immersive reality solution is on show that allows the highly realistic simulation of an operating environment, which can also be used for training activities.
