Team “Palo” took 1st place in the Innovathon competition launched by Leonardo and PoliHub. From June 8th to the 9th, in Milan, over 40 university students and recent gradutes from across Italy competed with the aim of designing and creating a working prototype of an automated driving system.
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.
