Supporting Maritime Superiority in an Era of Great Power Competition

27 - 29 October, 2020 | Romania

Enabling maritime superiority through sensor integration, data exploitation and new technologies

Enabling maritime superiority through sensor integration, data exploitation and new technologies

In this exclusive interview, Francesco Catalano, Electronics, Defence and Security Systems Project Engineering Manager from Leonardo, a key partner of this year’s Maritime ISR Global shares insights on the need to integrate sensors on multiple platforms in order to retain maritime dominance for NATO members and partners.

In this interview, gain insights from Leonardo on the following questions:

  • Can you give your take on the role that data plays in supporting maritime superiority for navies within and beyond NATO? How will the exploitation of that data need to evolve as the maritime operating environment grows increasingly complex?
  • How do we exploit an increase in situational awareness to generate a decisive decision advantage for maritime joint forces?
  • As our approach to maritime ISR depends on an ever-greater number of sensors operating across multiple domains, how do you view the challenge of integration? How does Leonardo support connectivity and interoperability to enhance our overall ISR capabilities – particularly for maritime mission sets?
  • What, in your opinion, will be the technologies which define next-generation ISR, and how will the leading defence integrators embed and leverage those technologies to drive situational awareness and support multi-domain command and control?
  • How has Leonardo approached the challenges facing maritime operators to deliver a bespoke solution which supports data collection, integration and dissemination?

Defence IQ: How do we exploit an increase in situational awareness to generate a decisive decision advantage for maritime joint forces?

Francesco Catalano: Nowadays we are able to assemble situational pictures which are extremely extended; they rely on multiple platforms that integrate multiple sensors able to work together by sharing information with each other, in order to create a common operational picture that includes objects observed from different perspectives. We are able to do that despite the fact that...
