The AWHERO is a state-of-the-art Short Range Tactical Rotary Unmanned Air Vehicle (RUAV), that incorporates the Leonardo Helicopter Division experience in the helicopter design and productions.  Learn more

Brite CloudBriteCloud
BriteCloud Expendable Active Decoy (EAD) is a compact, DRFM-based active RF countermeasure that has the capability to defeat the majority of RF-guided surface-to-air and air-to-air threat systems. BriteCloud is designed to be dispensed from standard chaff/flare dispensers and therefore requires minimal platform integration.  Learn more

Distributed Aperture IR Counter Measures (DAIRCM)Distributed Aperture IR Counter Measures (DAIRCM)
DAIRCM is an aircraft survivability system approach that utilizes a single sensor for both 2-color IR missile warning and wide field of view gimbal for threat countermeasure. Additional capabilities of the sensor include hostile fire indication (HFI), laser warning, limited Degraded Visual Environment capability, distributed sensors available for providing 360-degree situational awareness.

Distributed Aperture Sensor (DAS)Distributed Aperture Sensor (DAS)
This is our 'brownout' camera/detector system but we can't refer to it as the Brownout camera in the public realm. The DAS camera provides all the performance of a long-range capable, cooled LWIR camera in a small, low-power package.

Dual Mode Warning Sensor (DMWS) Dual Mode Warning Sensor (DMWS)
Aircraft Survivability sensor that packages Leonardo DRS’ 2-color IR missile warning capability in the US Army’s AN/AAR-57 form factor. This fast frame rate sensor is also well suited for hostile fire indication, limited Degraded Visual Environment capability and their distributed installation provides 360-degree situational awareness.

Osprey AESA RadarOsprey AESA Radar
Osprey MM multi-mode surveillance radar provides second generation Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) surveillance capability as the primary sensor on airborne assets to meet the challenges of the 21st century.  Download the data sheet

SAGE is a digital ESM/ ELINT for Radio Frequency (RF) intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. Delivering a situational awareness capability, SAGE provides RF signal analysis for intelligence gathering and tactical responses.

SEER is an advanced digital Radar Warning Receiver (RWR). The system is highly sensitive, providing detailed parametric and Angle of Arrival measurement of intercepted signals. SEER is fully programmable, allowing users to configure its operation with indigenous Mission Dependent Data.

TH-119 Advanced Helicopter TrainerTH-119 Advanced Helicopter Trainer
Military Helicopter training demands the right tool for the job, Leonardo Helicopters delivers it. The TH-119 provides basic helicopter flight training cost effectively and without compromise. It provides seamless and smooth transition to modern combat helicopters.  Learn more

 Common Display System (CDS) Common Display System (CDS)
The CDS Console provides a rugged workstation qualified for shipboard use in the tactical environment. Leonardo DRS is a proven product design, shipboard display and processing modernization specialist.

Mission Critical Equipment Cabinet for CPS TI16Mission Critical Equipment Cabinet for CPS TI16
Leonardo DRS provides development, testing, production and delivery of display, workstation, processing and network systems for ship combat control.

SHINCOM IVCS CommunicationsSHINCOM IVCS Communications
IVCS and SVS communications (Interior Voice and Secure Voice Communications). Internal IVCS voice cabinets are physically separated forward and aft to survive battle damage. Voice terminals are throughout the ship including up the mast. Secure voice cabinet is installed close to CIC, where most of the secure terminals go.  Learn more

Advanced Data Acquisition & Control System ADACSAdvanced Data Acquisition & Control System (ADACS)
ADACS features embedded sensors & controls for preventing, predicting and detecting arc faults in high power electrical systems with real time warning and control.  Learn more

Hybrid Electric / Electric Propulsion MotorsHybrid Electric Drive / Electric Propulsion Motors
Leonardo DRS provides power-dense solutions for Naval propulsion for Hybrid Electric Drive and Integrated Electric Drive. Our hybrid electric drive machines include gear mounted & shaft mounted solutions to fit operational needs and provide flexibility in engine room design. Our propulsion drives for U.S. Navy applications show our ability to meet strict power quality requirements.  Learn more

PA44 Permanent Magnet Motor / GeneratorPA44 Permanent Magnet Motor / Generator
The PA44 is direct water-cooled and rated up to 625HP. At only 395 lbs. the PA44 produces 1.6 horsepower per lb., making it the most power dense machine in its class. It has been selected to provide hybrid electric drive propulsion for the U.S. Coast Guard Offshore Patrol Cutter program.  Learn more

Silicon Carbide (SiC) Power Electronics Module (PEM)Silicon Carbide (SiC) Power Electronics Module (PEM)
The Leonardo DRS series of liquid-cooled Power Electronic Modules (PEMs) advances solid-state conversion technology for improved power density, flexibility and maintainability. Since the development of our first baseline PEM in 2005 we have worked continually to improve capability while meeting stringent power quality and acoustic requirements. Learn more

Zonal UPS Zonal UPS
The next step forward in UPS reliability and availability, DRS Pivotal Power’s 3 phase, 440VAC input / 440 VAC output Zonal UPS features n+1 redundant hot-swappable modules with automatic and manual bypass capability.  Available in 2kVA increments, the Zonal UPS is configurable to replace multiple point of use UPS’s with a single, common unit.  Learn more

SAMDIS Synthetic Aperture SonarSAMDIS Synthetic Aperture Sonar
Synthetic Aperture & Mine Detection Imaging Sonar (SAMDIS) provides an unmatched Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) capability in a solution scalable to any Tow-body, UUV, LDUUV, or XLUUV. SAMDIS is a 4th generation SAS offering multi-aspect processing of ultra-high resolution SAS imagery, enabling single sweep detection and classification.  Learn more

UxV Common C3UxV Common C3
Portable computing and communications platform to enable operations from any naval vessel or pier-side.

76mm Shipboard Gun76mm Shipboard Gun
The Leonardo 76mm Super Rapid Gun is an ideal solution for increasing ship lethality and survivability.
