To develop and implement a security plan, the first and essential step is to collect information from a wide number of sources and then assess their relevance in order to identify the danger. Leonardo provides satellite systems, big data predictive analysis, a complete range of sensors – from radar to electro-optics sensors and hyperspectral cameras – maritime patrol aircraft and helicopters and RPAS (Remote Piloted Aircraft Systems).




Sentinel - Copernicus

The Copernicus programme, coordinated by the European Commission in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) and with a major contribution from the Italian Space Agency (ASI), is designed to monitor the environment and to mitigate the effects of climate change, contributing to the management of humanitarian emergencies, natural disasters and civil security.

ExoMars Drill System

The ExoMars mission requires the collection of subsurface samples down to a depth of two metres. Once collected, the sample is then distributed to a suite of scientific instruments for rover on-board analysis.


COSMO-SkyMed is one of the most innovative Earth observation programmes and is funded by ASI, the Italian Ministry of Defence and the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Scientific Research.
