Passenger Terminal Today - Elizabeth Baker
The Italian aerospace technology company Leonardo is to create security ‘smart hubs’ out of the assets managed by Aeroporti di Roma (AdR), the operator of Rome Fiumicino and Ciampino airports.
The partners will develop joint projects in the fields of cybersecurity, surveillance, monitoring, communication and decision support for critical infrastructures and urban air mobility. Particular reference has been made to the development requirements of ground infrastructure and air traffic control.
The agreement is partly based on Leonardo’s technological and market development roadmaps identified in the company’s Be Tomorrow – Leonardo 2030 plan, which is intended to create long-term sustainable growth. The agreement is also based on AdR’s Sustainability and Innovation strategy, which aims to address national airports’ current challenges through partnerships.
