Air Defence

Leonardo develops system-of-systems solutions that utilise existing assets along with new technology to offer the full detect-to-engage spectrum of capability. Through the integration of our UK-based Electro-Optical capability and our internationally-renowned radar technology, our air defence systems are enabling mission critical operations ranging from airspace control to ground-based air defence, protection of forces and critical assets, and air traffic control.

Counter UAV Systems

Counter UAV Systems

With unmanned aerial systems constituting a new and serious threat, due to their easy proliferation and slow and low kinematic profile, especially in congested airspace, Leonardo has developed field-proven scalable counter UAV systems based on our sensor and effector technology.

Countering the threat of drones

Countering the threat of drones

Leonardo's Falcon Shield counter-drone system has already proved its value, playing a major role in the reopening of Gatwick airport before Christmas 2018. Looking ahead, the system will continue to play a significant role in air defence.
