Unmanned Systems

Unmanned systems for air, land and sea applications across both civil and military sectors, used in Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) missions and for threat simulation training. Modular, flexible solutions that integrate platforms, radar and electro-optical sensors, mission systems and ground control stations. Technologies to manage unmanned traffic safely and to protect airports and critical infrastructure from malicious or accidental incursions of remotely piloted aircraft systems.

Leonardo collaborates with leading international programmes in this sector, such as Eurodrone and Skydweller, and supports several government missions, including MONUSCO and FRONTEX, with patrol operations.

Eurodrone

Remotely piloted aircraft for medium-altitude and long-range operations, developed as part of a four-nation programme involving France, Germany, Italy and Spain. The twin-turboprop Eurodrone is the first unmanned system designed to fly in non-segregated airspace for military and civil missions, with strategic capabilities and advanced performance. Its features include mission modularity for operational superiority in Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) missions.

Skydweller

Leonardo is a technology partner of the Skydweller project, the first solar-powered drone capable of carrying large payloads with unlimited persistence in flight. Designed to fly at a maximum altitude of 14,000 metres (45,000 ft) and at a cruising speed of 25-50 knots, it can be deployed for land and sea surveillance, environmental and infrastructure monitoring, geo-information services, telecommunications and precision navigation.
