This underscores Leonardo's expertise in the field of naval defense technologies, particularly in command and control systems. The company has a history of providing comprehensive naval defense solutions that support the entire lifecycle of naval vessels.

Leonardo's integrated naval combat systems are designed for a wide range of maritime vessels, including patrol boats, aircraft carriers, mine-hunters, and submarines. These systems are developed to support various naval mission scenarios such as peacekeeping, patrolling, anti-piracy operations, surveillance, oil platform protection, and search and rescue activities.

The company's expertise covers a broad spectrum of products, including naval communications, navigation systems, radar, fire control systems, electro-optics, uncrewed systems, and weaponry like guns, missiles, torpedoes, sonars, and electronic warfare suites.

Leonardo is also capable of incorporating third-party subsystems into its solutions. The ATHENA Combat Management System is highlighted as a modular and scalable solution designed to address contemporary and evolving threats.

Leonardo's approach to naval combat involves net-centric operation systems that facilitate cooperation among naval surface ships, aircraft, and submarines, coordinated by land-based operation centers.

This coordination is achieved through a communication network that integrates different wavebands and satellite communication in both military and civil spheres. Leonardo has a record of supplying more than 100 warships for 40 different navies and is known for its ATHENA Combat Management System. Its products, including over 200 fire control systems and tracking radars, are in use by several navies, including the Italian Navy.
