Mauro Moretti: “The acquisition is a testament to the quality of our investments in the field of unmanned systems, a sector with high added value in which Leonardo is a leader in Europe”. With this action Leonardo acquires from IDS the 100% of the shares and the full control of the Hero unmanned programme. Hero is an unmanned light helicopter ideal for various civil and military applications
