Leonardo-Finmeccanica (Past Sponsor)
Leonardo-Finmeccanica is a global high-tech company in the Aerospace, Defence and Security sectors. The Company designs and develops products, services, and integrated solutions for governments, Armed Forces, and institutions, covering every possible operating scenario: air and land, naval and maritime, space and cyberspace.
Leonardo-Finmeccanica, with headquarters in Italy, has over 47,000 employees and 218 sites. The Company has a consolidated industrial presence in four main markets (Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Poland) and an important network of strategic partnerships in the main high potential markets worldwide.
Since 1 January 2016, through merger operations for the incorporation of OTO Melara and WASS into Leonardo-Finmeccanica and the absorption of the activities carried out by AgustaWestland, Alenia Aermacchi, and Selex ES, Leonardo-Finmeccanica is an integrated industrial entity.
In 2016, the Company also changed its name from Finmeccanica to Leonardo, a name inspired by Leonardo da Vinci, a universally recognised symbol of creativity and innovation.
Leonardo-Finmeccanica operates through seven Divisions (Helicopters, Aircraft, Aerostructures, Airborne & Space Systems, Land & Naval Defence Electronics, Defence Systems, Security & Information Systems) and the following subsidiaries and joint ventures: DRS Technologies (defence products, services and integrated support), Telespazio and Thales Alenia Space (satellite services and space manufacture), MBDA (missile systems), and ATR (regional aircraft).
