In a move to consolidate its unmanned helicopter offerings, Leonardo has bought the remaining 60% share of Sistemi Dinamici. In the process creating another acronym RUAS – Rotorcraft Unmanned Aerial System, a bit of a dodgy one this as it would apply to multi-copters as well.
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.”
Based in Pisa, Sistemi Dinamici was founded in 2006 with the aim of developing modern helicopter technologies.
