Our Capabilities

Our broad technology portfolio focuses on advanced sensing, network computing, force protection, and electrical power and propulsion, as well as a range of key defense priorities. Our innovative people are leading the way in developing disruptive technologies for autonomous, dynamic, interconnected, and multi-domain capabilities to defend against new and emerging threats.

Force Protection

We are a leading systems integrator of military ground vehicles to provide our troops with the very best reconnaissance and surveillance, mission support and vehicle survivability solutions in the world. We bring an extensive array of force protection technology, including counter-UAS and portable ground radar programs, active protection systems, combat vehicle turrets and stabilized sensor suites. Our short-range air defense missile system and mounted counter-UAS system integrate market-leading technologies can be rapidly deployed to protect U.S. and allied forces.

Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance

Few companies have the intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance and EO/IR expertise as deep as Leonardo DRS’. Take our Driver’s Vision Enhancer. It has helped improve situational awareness for countless warfighters on mobile patrol in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

We also deliver ISR solutions for surveillance and security, electronic warfare, equipment monitoring and test and measurement. Plus, Leonardo DRS delivers finished systems as well as components and sensors for OEM situations. All with an unmatched level of expertise in service, design and implementation — the very best for our customers.

Power and Propulsion

For Leonardo DRS, power and energy management is not just an emerging area of technology; it’s a cornerstone of who we are. For decades we have provided a variety of rugged power distribution, conversion, conditioning and generation products and services for platforms at sea and on land.

Our experience has led to ground-breaking solutions that improve power modularity, storage, survivability, and density. One stand-out example: a shipboard Energy Magazine that supports laser weapons and can provide stable backup power.

With a significant amount of R&D resources focused on improving power efficiency demands, streamlining platform electrification, enabling renewable energy sources and supplying remote sites worldwide, you never know what innovative power capability Leonardo DRS will deliver next.

Sustainment, Logistics, Service and Support

Leonardo DRS provides customers with the exact solutions they need, exactly when they're needed. Sustainment solutions, such as survivability solutions, liquid logistics and life cycle sustainment, demonstrate their value every day to keep operations running at peak efficiency. Integrated logistics support creates turnkey solutions, taking this value to the highest level. And advanced services extend this value, integrated manufacturing and hydrodynamics. Which means environments can be safer, transport can be speedier and systems can be more reliable. Creating an optimized environment, from engineering to integration to comprehensive training. It all fuses together, connected by Leonardo DRS.
