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

• The primary and distinctive coaching middle in Europe, based mostly 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 programs, delivering environment friendly and protected crew coaching for interoperability in advanced situations

Rome, 02/02/2023 – The Guardia di Finanza (Italian police pressure, with normal energy in financial and monetary affairs, the one maritime police pressure in Italy) was inaugurated at present, throughout an official ceremony within the presence of representatives of the establishments and Leonardo. The brand new middle has been developed by the corporate beginning in 2020. Based mostly on buyer necessities, it takes benefit of probably the most superior and modern 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 middle, which is exclusive in Europe, integrates superior community simulation programs right into a single setting. The simulators totally mirror Leonardo’s helicopters and plane, just lately acquired by the Guardia di Finanza and utilized in a variety of operational roles. Along with the corporate’s onboard mission programs used for monitoring and identification, amongst different issues. These add to the Situation Simulator, developed by Leonardo, in a position to nearly 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 middle 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 satisfactory bodily suggestions to the crew, and that Because of 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 due to a extremely immersive digital actuality for search and rescue missions.

Thanks to those simulation capabilities, Guardia di Finanza personnel can be educated in an setting able to reflecting the acute realism of the interoperability normally required in present and future multi-domain situations, precisely these by which the Guardia di Finanza performs its duties reminiscent of 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 positioned in hangar “L” of the air base, has been tailored with the assist of Leonardo and is totally built-in in Leonardo helicopter World Coaching Academy Community. The Leonardo Coaching Academy coordinated the initiative, making it doable to mix the best worldwide requirements of flight coaching with the missions supplied by the corporate’s totally different enterprise areas.

This initiative is the results of the sturdy assist of the Guardia di Finanza for the usage of coaching simulations and Leonardo’s associated industrial and technological capabilities. It integrates fastened and rotary wings, electronics, sensors, coaching and improvement/utilization as a “digital twin”. Guardia di Finanza has grow to be a benchmark for different nationwide and worldwide gamers with a robust concentrate on interoperability in advanced situations. Leonardo confirms its dedication to growing and supplying superior technological coaching options to safety organizations everywhere in the world.
