Aerospace, Defence and Security company
Aerospace company Leonardo and aviation services company 2Excel are modifying a commercial Boeing 757 to act as a flying laboratory to test technology for the 6th-generation Tempest fighter jet currently being developed.
The companies building the UK's Tempest sixth-generation fighter aircraft have revealed some of the technological concepts that it will incorporate, including a radar system designed to handle as much data per second as a city.
Defense companies Leonardo and Thales have successfully tested the Martlet Lightweight Multirole Missile (LMM). The missile being developed for the Royal Navy was fired during air trials from a Wildcat helicopter as part of the UK FASGW program.
Leonardo's Falco Xplorer drone has completed its maiden flight. The largest Remotely-Piloted Air System (RPAS) built by the company, the Falco Xplorer S/N0001 spent 60 minutes flying over the Gulf of Trapani in a dedicated fly zone.
