Leonardo's next-generation naval systems showcased
Leonardo-Finmeccanica’s stand (J86 - K91 in hall 2A) at Euronaval 2016 gives visitors the opportunity to explore a new generation of sensors and systems on the bridge of a multi-role naval vessel, also with the help from virtual reality.
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 represented by a ‘tactical table’, demonstrating the ship’s command and control centre. Also at the stand, visitors can 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 also exhibits anti-submarine warfare equipment, including the new ATAS sonar (Active Towed Array Sonar). An innovative new system, the ATAS is one of the smallest and most powerful variable-depth, towed sonars available today.
