Finmeccanica's first appearance as One Company at Bahrain Air Show
- Finmeccanica launched at the start of the year as a single organisation operating in aerospace, defence and security
- The Gulf region is a strategic market for the company
- Finmeccanica is currently upgrading six Royal Bahrain Naval Force ships
Finmeccanica, Italy’s leading high-technology group, will make its first appearance as ‘one company’ at the Bahrain Air Show 2016 on January 21st, showing at its stand products from its Helicopter division (in the process of the reorganisation of the Group’s companies, the division has absorbed, from January 1st 2016, the activities of AgustaWestland), and from its “Airborne & Space Systems”, “Land & Naval Defence Electronics” and “Security & Information Systems” divisions (which have absorbed Selex ES’s activities). As well known, thanks to the One Company model, driven by CEO and General Manager Mauro Moretti, Finmeccanica has become one organisation operating in aerospace, defence and security, with a new governance and operating model, organised into sectors and divisions and replacing the previous model of a holding company of separately controlled businesses.
At the show, Finmeccanica will build on these links by exhibiting a full range of capabilities relevant to the region. Visitors will be able to learn about Finmeccanica’s Air and Space Systems via an interactive display and learn about the company’s extensive range of naval capabilities and expertise in cyber security on video screens. The company will also be highlighting two systems of particular relevance to the region: the Falcon Shield, a counter-UAV security system, and the LeadInSky air traffic control system. Falcon Shield has been designed to combat the threat from small, easily available commercial drones. Able to find, fix, track, identify and defeat threats, Falcon Shield is the first such system to offer an ‘RF management’ electronic attack option for operators, allowing them to take control of remotely piloted drones and land them safely. LeadInSky is also set to improve security, in this case by offering air traffic controllers a highly dependable solution based on more than 50 years of ATC radar experience. With rapidly evolving demands placed on air traffic controllers by a growing number of passengers, LeadInSky is the trustworthy answer to the most complex ATC requirements.
