Pacific Future Forum 2021

Leonardo participated at the Pacific Future Forum 2021 (20-21 October) on-board the HMS Prince of Wales in Portsmouth and online. The international summit was hosted by the UK Government and was dedicated to strengthening the defence, security, technology, and trading relationships between democratic nations, bringing together political, military, business and technology leaders.

During the Pacific Future Forum, Leonardo showcased some of its capability and expertise that puts it among the top ten global players in Aerospace, Defence and Security. Our wide international presence sees us design, develop and manufacture multi-mission rotary and fixed-wing aircraft, unmanned platforms, systems and sensors, and integrated solutions, services and support for the air, land, maritime, space, electro-magnetic and cyber domains.
