Leonardo: The Guardia di Finanza has inaugurated the Naval Air Operations Simulation Center in Italy

• The primary and distinctive coaching heart in Europe, primarily based on the Pratica di Mare Air Base (Rome), is constructed on the sturdy synergies between the operational experience of Guardia di Finanza and Leonardo’s technological and repair excellence

A single digital actuality setting, integrating plane and mission methods, delivering environment friendly and secure crew coaching for interoperability in advanced eventualities

Rome, 02/02/2023 – The Guardia di Finanza (Italian police power, with common energy in financial and monetary affairs, the one maritime police power in Italy) was inaugurated at this time, throughout an official ceremony within the presence of representatives of the establishments and Leonardo. The brand new heart has been developed by the corporate beginning in 2020. Primarily based on buyer necessities, it takes benefit of essentially the most superior and revolutionary applied sciences within the subject of simulation, and goals to coach Guardia di Finanza crews to hold out air and sea operations.

The brand new heart, which is exclusive in Europe, integrates superior community simulation methods right into a single setting. The simulators absolutely mirror Leonardo’s helicopters and plane, lately acquired by the Guardia di Finanza and utilized in a spread of operational roles. Along with the corporate’s onboard mission methods used for monitoring and identification, amongst different issues. These add to the Situation Simulator, developed by Leonardo, in a position to just about create the setting the place platforms and personnel collaborate in a single job, a ship dashboard simulator that additionally presents ships in a marine setting – developed in collaboration with Cetena (Fincantieri) – and a command heart Floor coordinates operations.

The AW169 / AW139 helicopters and the all-new P-72B “small movement” plane simulators, Enhanced Coaching Designator (ETD e-Movement), reproduce efficiency, avionics and cockpit with excessive accuracy, and are in a position to present sufficient bodily suggestions to the crew, and that Due to the platform’s built-in triggers. Pilot coaching is complemented by rear crew coaching for these utilizing the Leonardo ATOS (Tactical Oversight and Air Management) mission system for the AW139 and P-72B in addition to cabin raise operations because of a extremely immersive digital actuality for search and rescue missions.

Thanks to those simulation capabilities, Guardia di Finanza personnel shall be educated in an setting able to reflecting the acute realism of the interoperability normally required in present and future multi-domain eventualities, precisely these wherein the Guardia di Finanza performs its duties similar to safety, surveillance, patrol, and rescue.

The middle is an EASA accredited coaching group and has been awarded the ENAC (Italian Civil Aviation Authority) Distance Plane Coaching Certificates. The middle is situated in hangar “L” of the air base, has been tailored with the help of Leonardo and is absolutely built-in in Leonardo helicopter International Coaching Academy Community. The Leonardo Coaching Academy coordinated the initiative, making it potential to mix the very best worldwide requirements of flight coaching with the missions provided by the corporate’s completely different enterprise areas.

This initiative is the results of the sturdy help of the Guardia di Finanza for using coaching simulations and Leonardo’s associated industrial and technological capabilities. It integrates mounted and rotary wings, electronics, sensors, coaching and improvement/utilization as a “digital twin”. Guardia di Finanza has turn into a benchmark for different nationwide and worldwide gamers with a robust give attention to interoperability in advanced eventualities. Leonardo confirms its dedication to growing and supplying superior technological coaching options to safety organizations everywhere in the world.
