Leonardo invests around £200m in the UK (around 10% of turnover) in Research and Development each year. This investment in innovation enables us to deliver some of the UK’s most advanced technology programmes such as the new generation radar for the RAF’s Typhoon combat aircraft, Infra-Red cameras and advanced helicopter capabilities.
