DIMDEX 2018 Video: Italian Navy FREMM ITS Margottini with Leonardo Technologies


Leonardo is on board of the “Multi-Mission European Frigate” (FREMM) ITS Carlo Margottini, which departed from La Spezia in Italy on 20th February 2018. Leonardo supports Margottini’s mission with its advanced naval solutions, which are on board the Frigate itself. These cutting-edge capabilities are derived from over 50 years of experience in the design and implementation of naval systems and through managing large and complex programs.

The ITS Margottini, an Anti-Submarine Warfare unit, is equipped with systems designed, produced and integrated by Leonardo. These systems include the Combat Management System (CMS), radar sensors and Fire control systems, Electro-optical and Infrared sensors for tracking functions, communication systems and defence systems. The Frigate also has on-board the NH90 NFH multi-role helicopter with specific avionics and mission equipment for naval operations produced by Leonardo.

ITS Margottini features the Multi-Function Radar Active (MFRA) Kronos – the main missile and air defence system sensor; the surface search radar RAN-30X; the navigation radar with low probability of intercept (LPI) SPN-730; the secondary Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) phased array interrogator SIR-M5-PA; the electro-optical infrared search and track Silent Acquisition and Surveillance System (SASS); two sets of the multi-sensors (radar and electro-optical) fire control system NA-25X. The Margottini ship has a Leonardo integrated internal and external communications system, also providing tactical data link connections based on the Leonardo Multi-Data Link Processor (M-DLP).

Other Leonardo products on-board are: two 76/62mm Super Rapid Defense systems using Davide/Dart guided ammunitions for tracking targets; Anti-mine Sonar (Mine Avoidance Sonar);

Decoy Launching Systems (DLS) for countermeasures against underwater and aerial threats and the MU90 lightweight Torpedoes Launching System (TLS). Finally, MBDA (consortium including Airbus, BAE Systems and Leonardo) is responsible for the anti-air defence SAAM ESD equipment, based on Aster 15/Aster 30 missiles, and for the anti-ship system Teseo MK2/A based on the Teseo missile.

The Margottini unit is third out of the ten ships Mergamini Class planned for Italy within the FREMM program, which currently forms the backbone of the Italian Navy.

The Italian side of the French-Italian FREMM program is coordinated by the Italian Prime Contractor Orizzonte Sistemi Navali (51% Fincantieri, 49% Leonardo). Leonardo, in addition to providing technology and advanced naval electronic and defence equipment, is responsible for complete combat system integration activities.
