WATMC 2022: Leonardo exhibits latest drone detection radar, SESAR drone research results

The electronics arm of Italian defence and aerospace company Leonardo is exhibiting its latest Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar technology developed to detect and track drones at World ATM Congress 2022, taking place in Madrid 21-23 June. The company’s Tactical Multi-Mission Radar (TMMR) is designed to locate small targets and highly manoeuvrable targets including hostile drones.

According to a Leonardo press release, the company’s expertise encompasses digital communications, navigation, surveillance and cyber security. The company is investing in the next generation of enabling technologies including artificial intelligence, big data analysis, machine learning and augmented reality.

Another domain Leonardo is highlighting at the show is the progressive integration of uncrewed systems into airspace (UTM) in line with the SESAR U-space roadmap and European standards for remotely piloted aircraft. The company is participating in a series of innovative projects. Among these, the company is demonstrating its ability to manage drones within a national ATM system, maintaining adequate levels of safety and allowing flight in non-segregated areas via the use of satellite services to improve positioning, navigation performance and accuracy.

Leonardo is also presenting results obtained from activities carried out within the SESAR modernisation programme. The work concerns the integration of drones in controlled airspace, and the future communication, navigation, surveillance (CNS) infrastructure.
