Leonardo and the Italian Air Force, in collaboration with SMAU, are launching a challenge for start-ups, universities and developers to identify solutions that, using Artificial Intelligence, improve maintenance and training activities in the Air Force context.
With a long history of experience and know-how we partner with major commercial airline manufacturers to design, build, test and integrate conventional and composite structures and components. Our highly automated facilities are specialised in manufacturing large and complex structures.
We manufacture large and complex carbon fibre structures built with unique and innovative technologies. Our facilities accommodate the largest ‘one piece barrel’ that we manufacture for Boeing, and we supply highly automated productions of stabilizers and fins for Boeing and Airbus.
We have designed and developed the vertical fin and fully equipped fuselage for the ATR regional aircraft family, a joint venture we share with Airbus, of which over 1700 have been manufactured to date, and we built a number of fuselage sections in tradional alloys for Airbus, Boeing and Dassault.
Meeting the strictest thermal, aerodynamic and mechanical requirements of these complex structures, we manufacture nacelles for all main platform primes and invest in the development of advanced technological solutions to reduce noise, weight and drag.
