ROME. Leonardo-Finmeccanica officials announced that the company acquired full control of Sistemi Dinamici S.p.A from IDS S.p.A this week, further strengthening Leonardo's unmanned product portfolio such as the acquisition of the new unmanned lightweight helicopter SD-150 Hero program.
The control of the company involved the remaining 60 percent of shares. Leonardo now expands its unmanned helicopter portfolio, which also consists of the SW-4 Solo, and consolidates its capabilities as a system integrator, designing and producing platforms, equipment, and sensors.
