Avionic Systems

Communication and identification systems for airborne platforms

Leonardo Electronics US Inc. is a world leader in communication, navigation, identification, and surveillance (CNIS) avionics systems. We specialize in High Frequency (HF), Very High Frequency, and Ultra High Frequency (V/UHF) radio systems for commercial and military applications as well as Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) transponders for military use.

Avionics transponders are vital in ensuring clear communication and safety for those in the air and on the ground. The HF, V/UHF, and IFF systems from Leonardo play an important role in communicating with air traffic control, avoiding air traffic collisions, and identifying nearby aircraft.
