Leonardo and BAE Methods are actively progressing UK-Italy collaboration alternatives on the demonstrator plane as a part of the Future Fight Air System (FCAS) programme, within the framework of a cooperation path launched by Italy and the UK within the Defence sector. This method permits the businesses of the 2 nations to determine shared areas of collaboration and start joint evaluation on attainable actions of shared curiosity, after the 2 firms reached a collaboration settlement throughout the Future Fight Air System (FCAS) programme. In the identical context, lies an settlement between Leonardo’s Italian and UK electronics companies and Elettronica SpA associated to demonstration actions on superior sensors and methods.

The collaboration between Leonardo and BAE Methods focuses on the applying of Mannequin Based mostly System Engineering (MBSE) design methodologies and the joint improvement of enabling applied sciences for the nationwide sovereignty of the longer term system. These actions are the pure evolution of the innovation processes already initiated by the associate firms, and assume strategic significance as they discover a technological frontier not but reached by European trade.


The FCAS program pursues the event of a technologically superior multi-domain system of methods, underpinned by extremely progressive and disruptive applied sciences, with a sixth technology core platform, and meant for the renewal of Eurofighter fleet. This bold challenge will permit taking part nations to keep up nationwide sovereignty within the Fight Air sector, whereas redesigning future operational and industrial capabilities within the aerospace sector.

Moreover, in step with this technique, Leonardo’s Italian and UK electronics companies and Elettronica SpA have agreed to collaborate within the area of sensors and communications, aiming to help the technological improvement of the FCAS challenge, together with demonstration actions associated to future on-board electronics. This initiative will deepen the established collaboration of those firms on the worldwide stage, collectively defining the potential structure for an built-in set of sensors and communications tools with progressive capabilities and extremely built-in options.
