Leonardo in the second edition of the Kuwait Aviation Show
In Kuwait the solutions range from air traffic control technologies and baggage handling systems, to helicopters for onshore and offshore operations and Typhoon

15-01-2020 - Leonardo is taking part in the second edition of the Kuwait Aviation Show from 15th-18th January 2020. At the show, the Company is focusing on its advanced technologies in the aviation and training fields (stand B275).
Leonardo’s technologies are already in-service in Kuwait, where the Company has provided infrastructure for Kuwait City Airport, including data management systems, primary radar and an ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast) system for air traffic control.
Leonardo has also provided Kuwait City Airport Terminal 4’s new baggage handling system.
Three Leonardo AW169 light-intermediate twin helicopters guarantee onshore and offshore transportation to the Kuwait Oil Company, operated by Falcon Aviation Services, enabling the operator to perform a leap forward in the level of service supporting the Oil & Gas industry within the region.
Thanks to the presence of the Italian Air Force, attendees at the show will be able to admire a breathtaking flight display by the Eurofighter Typhoon performed by the Reparto Sperimentale Volo (Italian Air Force Flight Test Wing), which is responsible for the study and evaluation of all ground and flight tests of aeronautical weapon systems.
Eurofighter Typhoon is the world’s most advanced swing-role combat aircraft providing simultaneously deployable Air-to-Air and Air-to-Surface capabilities. The aircraft has demonstrated, and continues to perform with high reliability across the globe in all climates.
Nine customers – including Italy, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait and Qatar – have already ordered the Eurofighter Typhoon, which stems from a collaborative project between Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany and Spain, with the industrial participation of Leonardo, BAE Systems and Airbus Defence and Space. Leonardo has a 36% workshare in the Typhoon programme and is responsible for more than 60% of the aircraft’s electronics.
In December 2019, the Eurofighter Typhoon programme achieved a key milestone with the first flight of the Instrumented Series Production Aircraft (ISPA 6) equipped with the Kuwait Air Force configuration, the first aircraft to fly the innovative Captor E-Scan Radar with Phase Enhancement P3Eb. With Captor E-Scan radar and several new additions to the weapon system,
this variant will put the Kuwait Air Force at the front-line of fighter technology when the aircraft enters service with the State of Kuwait. Leonardo will start delivering Eurofighter Typhoon fighter aircraft to the Kuwait Air Force from 2020 and deliveries of 28 aircraft will continue until 2023. Training for Kuwaiti pilots is already underway in Italy at Grosseto Air Force Base.
To respond to the regional threats posed by hostile drone operators, Leonardo is also able to provide tailored Counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) solutions, deployable by civil and military customers. The Company is already providing C-UAS expertise and technology to the Italian, UK, and US armed forces and its systems have been already deployed to handle dronerelated
disruption at major international airports.
