This year Leonardo is a major exhibitor at ITEC 2019, the annual forum dedicated to simulation, education and training in the military and civil domains, taking place in Stockholm, Sweden from 14 to 16 May 2019.
Training and simulation is a rapidly expanding market and Leonardo is providing visitors at ITEC with an exceptional overview of its latest innovations. At the Leonardo stand, it’s possible to interact with XR Morpheus, an innovative virtual reality training tool allowing for system familiarization, operating and maintenance procedures in a synthetic, photorealistic environment. It supports instructors during the preparation and execution of practical training allowing the easy creation of training sessions.
The International Flight Training School, the training academy launched last year by Leonardo and the Italian Air Force will show how it covers the entire advanced and preoperational phase of the military pilot training syllabus. Simulation Based Trainer and Virtual Maintenance Training solutions will be on display at ITEC. These systems, fully representative of the real aircraft, are devoted to classroom students (pilots and maintenance technicians respectively).
As leader of the European project Ocean 2020, Leonardo will also focus on the integration of unmanned platforms of different types with naval units and the exchange of satellite data with command and control centers on the ground.
In the helicopter sector, Leonardo is able to provide the largest scope of flight, mission and maintenance training capabilities and is constantly expanding its global footprint. Telespazio VEGA Deutschland, a subsidiary of Telespazio, a joint venture between Leonardo (67%) and Thales (33%), is exhibiting its latest simulation-based military training systems including the company’s involvement in helicopter programs. Among them, the company is showing its Virtual Maintenance Trainers as well as the Aircraft Systems Trainers.
Leonardo, a global high-technology company, is among the top ten world players in Aerospace, Defense and Security and Italy’s main industrial company.
Organized into five business divisions, Leonardo has a significant industrial presence in Italy, the United Kingdom, Poland and the USA, where it also operates through subsidiaries such as Leonardo DRS (defense electronics), and joint ventures and partnerships: ATR, MBDA, Telespazio, Thales Alenia Space and Avio.
Leonardo competes in the most important international markets by leveraging its areas of technological and product leadership (Helicopters, Aircraft, Aerostructures, Electronics, Cyber Security and Space).
Listed on the Milan Stock Exchange (LDO), in 2017 Leonardo recorded consolidated restated revenues of €11.7 billion and invested €1.5 billion in Research and Development. The Group has been part of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index since 2010.
