Sea: Supporting maritime
operations above and
below the surface
As part of the MBDA-led UK Dragonfire consortium, Leonardo is working with UK MOD and dstl to develop a Laser Directed Energy Weapon (LDEW) capable of providing short-range air defense capability or close-in protection for naval vessels, by tracking, deterring or even destroying an incoming threat.
Leonardo’s Smart Information Dissemination & Management Services (Smart IDMS) decreases the risk of counter detection by reducing the time submarines have to spend at periscope depth to receive vital information. Our Smart IDMS ‘App Store’ enables important information, from different supporting agencies in various formats, to be passed quickly from shore to sea.
