• Visitors to the exhibition will be able to learn about the company’s next-generation naval systems via a ‘virtual journey’ on the bridge of a multi-role ship;
• The latest developments include a “naval cockpit” for integrated ship management and ATAS (Active Towed Array Sonar) the smallest and most powerful towed sonar on the market today;
• Leonardo naval systems equip more than 100 vessels operated by over 40 international maritime organisations.
Euronaval is the leading international naval sector exhibition and will be held from the 17-21st of October in Paris- Le Bourget, France and Leonardo will be exhibiting the latest technological developments in the naval field at stand n. J86 - K91 in Hall 2A. Leonardo is a key player in the sector and can provide comprehensive solutions for naval mission management which integrate many kinds of sensors including radar, electronic systems, weapons, helicopters and manned and unmanned aircraft. Able to meet the requirements of the world’s most advanced naval forces, Leonardo is already responsible for the provision and integration of all on-board systems for Italy’s new fleet of naval vessels and is developing the ships’ combat systems.
The focus of Leonardo’s presence at the show is the company’s innovative “naval cockpit”, which enables the integrated management of ship-board operations with a vessel’s combat system. The new Combat Management System features a modular and reconfigurable open architecture that can be customised depending on the demands of a given mission. At the show, the system will be represented by a ‘tactical table’, demonstrating the ship’s command and control centre.
Also at the stand, visitors will be able to experience, through augmented reality, new naval capabilities including a new multi-functional, fixed-face dual-band radar, friend-or-foe detection and infrared sensors for acquiring and tracking targets, integrated communications systems and satellite radio.
The company will also be exhibiting anti-submarine warfare equipment, including the new ATAS sonar (Active Towed Array Sonar). An innovative new system, the ATAS is the smallest and most powerful variable-depth, towed sonar available today.
