Leonardo-Finmeccanica has announced that it has acquired full control of Sistemi Dinamici, with the acquisition of the remaining 60 percent of shares set to strengthen Leonardo’s unmanned systems offerings.

Sistemi Dinamici developed the SD-150 Hero unmanned lightweight helicopter, which will now form part of Leonardo’s portfolio.

The UAS was developed to meet current and future market requirements for increasingly extended operational capabilities in land and naval operations, for the environmental/critical infrastructure monitoring, search and rescue, disaster relief and border surveillance markets.

Mauro Moretti, CEO and general manager of Leonardo, said: ‘This acquisition is a testament to the quality of our investments in the field of unmanned systems, a sector with high added value in which Leonardo is a leader in Europe. 

‘Thanks to a defined investment strategy, our portfolio is further enriched, making Leonardo even more competitive and ready to meet the future challenges in advanced technologies.’
