Offering protection is a challenge and a complex responsibility that requires the capacity to manage multiple scenarios, both physical and virtual. Leonardo offers a wide range of solutions that ensure total situational awareness and guarantee real time surveillance and control of air, land and marine environments, as well as the cybernetic world. The solutions range from network security systems to fixed and rotary wing aircraft for civil and military missions, from avionic and self-protection suites to drones.





LOAM is a state-of-the-art navigational aid system for rotary wing platforms. Specifically designed to detect potentially dangerous obstacles along an aircraft's flight path, it warns the crew in sufficient time to implement effective evasive counter-measure manoeuvres. LOAM works on the laser radar principle using an eye-safe laser beam to periodically scan the area along the flight path and perform a detailed analysis of the returned echoes....

BriteCloud DRFM (Digital RF Memory) countermeasure

The BriteCloud Expendable Active Decoy (EAD) is a small active self-contained Digital RF Memory (DRFM) countermeasure for fast jet aircraft that has the capability to defeat the majority of modern and legacy Surface-to-Air and Air-to-Air threat systems. BriteCloud is designed to be dispensed from standard chaff and flare dispensers and requires minimal platform integration.


PHM - Passive Hydrogen Maser is an atomic clock developed by Airborne and Space Systems Division, used for precise positioning, timekeeping and other onboard applications. Designed to operate in space for more than 12 years, it offers an outstanding stability for averaging times from 1 to 100,000 seconds. Airborne and Space Systems Division is also developing a mini PHM, which offers the same frequency stability as the PHM in a smaller package.


The KRONOS GRAND is a highly compact and mobile multifunctional System, designed for Land Based Tactical operations requiring outstanding Air & Coastal Surveillance and Defense against new generation of conventional and asymmetric threats.

Falcon Shield

Falcon Shield is a rapidly deployable, scalable and modular system designed to address the threat from low, slow and small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

SEER RWR (Radar Warning Receiver)

The SEER Radar Warning Receiver (RWR) utilises a digital receiver for advanced situational awareness and is essential for evading threats in a complex hostile environment. Trialled with outstanding operational results and supplemented with a complete support package, SEER can increase mission success and aircraft survivability for a range of new or upgrade programmes, including large transport and small fixed wing aircraft, rotary wing vehicles...
