Leonardo attends World Defense Show 2022 with a strong focus on crossdomain interoperability in answer to security needs
International aerospace, defence and security company Leonardo is exhibiting
at the first edition of the World Defense Show 2022 (WDS - Riyadh, 6-9 March), presenting its crossdomain capabilities and technological solutions to attendees from the Gulf Region and beyond.

International aerospace, defence and security company Leonardo is exhibiting
at the first edition of the World Defense Show 2022 (WDS - Riyadh, 6-9 March), presenting its crossdomain capabilities and technological solutions to attendees from the Gulf Region and beyond.
The widespread presence of the Italian-headquartered company Leonardo at this new exhibition
includes an impressive layout of four stands representing its cross-domain offer (Hall 1, stand G9.1
and within the static area Pad F). In addition to the company’s legacy with the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia (Hall 2, stand Q18), where Leonardo has an established presence in country with offices and a
subsidiary based in Riyadh; and a further focus on the company’s UK (Hall1, stand J37) and US (Hall
1, stand N2) businesses.
Leonardo is exhibiting key technologies designed to deliver high levels of safety in complex, multidomain environments, including SPS 732 long range costal surveillance radar, RAT 31 DL digital
surveillance and long-range air defence radar, and the Kronos Grand Naval multifunctional radar,
equipped with Leonardo's advanced AESA technology which can simultaneously track multiple
targets. Leonardo is able to provide full suites, radars and sensors for all aerial platforms, including
the BriteCloud active expendable decoy and the Miysis DIRCM (Directed Infrared Countermeasure),
the SAGE system for RF intelligence and reconnaissance missions and the Osprey 30 multi-domain
AESA radar.
In the land domain, Leonardo is presenting its highly effective, highly accurate Vulcano 155mm longrange ammunition, available in BER (Ballistic Extended Range) and GLR (Guided Long Range)
variants, and being capable of reaching distances up to 70 km. Also marketed at the show is the Type
163 LTD (Laser Target Designator), for those looking for a lightweight, compact and high-energy laser
designator. More than 800 systems have already been delivered to 27 international customers,
including the Australian Defence Force, which recently ordered a second batch.
Leonardo DRS, the Leonardo US arm, is ready to present at the exhibition its battle management
systems, on-board vehicle power systems and EO-IR technologies (weapon scopes and mounted
systems).
Leonardo’s offer includes state-of-the-art UAS (Uncrewed Aerial Systems) and C-UAS (Counter
Uncrewed Aerial Systems), for civil and military applications. These include the Falco Xplorer UAS,
which is ideally suited to border control and information gathering in a range of scenarios, and the
rotary-wing AWHero, a dual-use platform, which can perform civil and defence operations day and
night, over land and sea. Full customised Leonardo’s C-UAS systems, military qualified but easily and
quickly deployable also in civil contexts, have already been supplied to the UK’s Royal Air Force and
to the Italian and US Armed Forces.
Leonardo is a key partner on many important complex and strategic defence programs. This includes
the Eurofighter Typhoon (with the company leading the delivery of over 60% of the on-board
avionics), Eurodrone (recently contracted by OCCAR), and the company is actively engaged in the
Tempest FCAS international programme, due to go into service in 2035, with both its UK and Italy
businesses.
Among Leonardo’s fixed-wing aircraft programmes present at WDS, the C-27J Spartan is exhibited at
the static area (Pad F), still unrivalled in its category in terms of mission flexibility, in its Next
2
Generation version it features comprehensive new avionics and aerodynamic developments, for
improved operational efficiency and even better performance. Leonardo will brief journalists on C-27J
Next Generation on 8th March at 2:00 PM (Hall 1, stand G9.1).
Also on show is the M-346 - the most advanced solution for training pilots destined for new generation
fighters. Its state-of-the-art training system, including Live Virtual Constructive, contributes to the
ability of the aircraft to reproduce the most complex operational scenarios. The M-346 training
system, the backbone of the IFTS (International Flight Training School) made by Leonardo and Italian
Air Force, is attracting customers in the Gulf and beyond. The new fighter-attack version of the
aircraft, already delivered to its first international customer, is a radar-equipped effective multirole light
combat platform that maintains all its training capabilities.
In regions like Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific, there are several opportunities for the
AW159 and AW149 defence helicopters. The AW159 is highly effective in maritime missions through
its modular equipment, which enhances its true multi-role capability. It is an affordable, modern and
agile platform for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), Anti-Surface Warfare (ASuW) roles up to
Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR), Maritime Interdiction,
Search and Rescue (SAR) operations. The latest-generation AW149 8.6 tonne medium multirole
helicopter provides the flexibility requested of a modern battlefield support helicopter, and executes all
required missions with unequalled cost-effectiveness.
The Leonardo technologies on show are also relevant to cross-domain interoperability, including the
Cyber & Security domain, where Leonardo positions itself as a world leader in the supply of complete
and integrated solutions. At WDS, Leonardo is presenting its technologies and proprietary platforms
to support national critical infrastructure security and the training of cyber security operators,
enhancing the capability to assess the security of the systems and respond effectively to cyberattacks, while also supporting the digitalization of core defence processes. Leonardo will brief
journalists on its cyber capabilities on 8
th March at 10:15 AM (Hall 1, stand G9.1).
Investing in innovation and disruptive technologies, Leonardo aims to contribute to global security and
progress, as stated in its “Be Tomorrow – 2030” strategic plan. In this context, Leonardo recently
launched the Business Innovation Factory (leonardoaccelerator.com), an accelerator open to
innovative start-ups and talented founders, from Europe and the Middle East.
