Leonardo with the Italian AMI to imagine the logistics of the future
The industry took part in a two-day event
Leonardo took part in the first “Airathon” dedicated to the application of disruptive technologies in the field of logistics, organised by the Italian Air Force and by Ernst&Young (EY) on the 5th and 6th of June, at the Italian Air Force base in Pratica di Mare (close to Rome).
The event, a creative marathon that involved industry, start-ups and universities in the debate launched by the Italian Air Force, provided the opportunity for sharing and discussing ideas –for the first time with an approach of open innovation, typical of hackathons– on the application of new technologies to logistics, training and maintenance.
In order to reach the challenging targets detailed in its Industrial Plan, Leonardo has recently modified its organisational structure, creating a central function of Customer Support & Services, with the aim of working better together with its customers and –through a network of offices and logistic hubs– it aims to become a “Full Service Provider” at an international level.
The industry is already providing its customers with cutting-edge solutions in the training and logistics fields, through the integration of augmented reality and mixed reality. One example is the LVC (Live, Virtual and Constructive Simulation) technology, which features the highly advanced simulation system of Leonardo’s M-346 trainer aircraft, which allows –among other things– the students on the ground to interact with the pilots flying, within the same training mission.
To recall the transformations characterising Leonardo in the last few years –turned into a “one company” through a complex integration process–, the company gave a “special mention” to Team Tango, that has stood out from the rest for operating with a creative, but homogeneous approach to leveraging on the different components, maximizing the disruptive result of the identified solution.
