Leonardo develops system-of-systems solutions that utilise existing assets along with new technology to offer the full detect-to-engage spectrum of capability. Through the integration of our UK-based Electro-Optical capability and our internationally-renowned radar technology, our air defence systems are enabling mission critical operations ranging from airspace control to ground-based air defence, protection of forces and critical assets, and air traffic control.
