    Leonardo Statement on Coronavirus Outbreak


    Leonardo, March 30, 2020 - During this time of an unprecedented health emergency in Italy, Leonardo, country’s main industrial company, which is among the top ten world players in Aerospace, Defence and Security, continues to provide resources and people in support of national institutions’ management and containment of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Leonardo has undertaken a series of solidarity initiatives to support the efforts made by people who are working to guarantee the containment of Covid-19 on a daily basis, as well as assistance to those affected by Coronavirus and their families.

    AIRCRAFT

    Through the use of two C-27Js Transport Aircraft of the Aircraft Division and one ATR 72, and thanks to the Company’s customers who have endorsed the initiative, Leonardo and its crew will support “Protezione Civile” by carrying out a series of shuttle flights between Italian airports and other destinations as required during the emergency including international airports, to ensure the transportation of medical materials (ventilators, masks, etc.).

    HELICOPTERS

    In addition, the Helicopters Division has made available its pilots and 3 helicopters (2 AW139 and 1 AW189) in different configurations providing technical support to the Armed Forces’ helicopter fleet, organisations, institutions, Police Forces and to all Leonardo helicopters engaged in the emergency, including maintenance and other services for “Protezione Civile” during the healthcare operations.

    3D PRINT

    At the Leonardo-Grottaglie site, the Aerostructures Division, has launched the first production batch of valves, through additive manufacturing technology (3D printing). These will support the initiative of Isinnova, a company in Brescia, which has developed a plastic valve project which allows the modification of a particular model of snorkeling mask and, which, in turn, transforms it into respirators for sub-intensive therapies. The same activity will be carried out at the Electronics Division La Spezia site.

    CYBERSECURITY

    Starting from 6 April, Leonardo will offer a 2 months free-of-charge Threat Intelligence service to companies to improve their cyber defence due to the large scale of smart-working which poses an exposure risk. The service, guaranteed by the Cyber Division, will be provided to the first 100 companies that request the assistance and will allow the monitoring of the main cyber threats and cover any related vulnerabilities.
