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.
Leonardo-Finmeccanica delivered the first two of a total four ATR 72MPs to the Italian Air Force. Designated P-72A by the Italian Air Force, the aircraft will replace the Air Force's obsolete Breguet Atlantic.
Since beginning of September the development of a common European drone has entered a new phase. The contract for the Definition Study of the European MALE RPAS (Medium Altitude Long Endurance Remotely Piloted Aircraft System) Programme, assigned to Airbus, Dassault Aviation and Leonardo-Finmeccanica has been launched by a kick-off meeting chaired by the Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation (OCCAR).
Leonardo has been awarded the most prestigious Italian award dedicated to domestic ‘made in Italy' innovation. The National Award for Innovation was awarded during a ceremony at the Quirinal Palace, overseen by the President of the Italian Republic.
Leonardo-Finmeccanica will be a key exhibitor at the 2016 Farnborough International Airshow with a new profile, the result of the deep reorganization of the company undertaken by the CEO and General Manager Mauro Moretti.
