Leonardo-Finmeccanica Acquires Unmanned Helicopter Manufacturer

Sistemi Dinamici Acquisition Expected To Make The Company Stronger In Unmanned Systems

Leonardo-Finmeccanica has acquired the full control of Sistemi Dinamici S.p.A from IDS S.p.A. The control of the company, which involved the remaining 60 percent of shares, is aimed at further strengthening the commitment of Leonardo in unmanned products thanks to the acquisition of the new unmanned lightweight helicopter SD-150 Hero program.

 

With the acquisition, Leonardo says it has widened its unmanned helicopter portfolio, which also includes the SW-4 Solo, and consolidates its capabilities as a system integrator, developing both platforms and equipment and sensors.

"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," said Mauro Moretti, CEO and General Manager of Leonardo. "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."

Based in Pisa, Sistemi Dinamici was founded in 2006 with the aim of developing modern helicopter technologies.
