Barum & Dewar secures additional order from Leonardo


Barum & Dewar has secured yet another follow-on order from leading aerospace company, Leonardo. This latest contract will see Barum & Dewar provide a range of Falcon Shield deployable protective cases, building on the success of several previous deliveries.

Leonardo is among the top ten world players in Aerospace, Defence and Security with significant industrial presence in the UK and Barum & Dewar has now been a trusted supplier of rugged, deployable cases, racks and protective packaging to them for more than ten years.

In 2019, Barum & Dewar worked in close partnership with Leonardo to design and manufacture a bespoke protective packaging solution to ensure the safe transportation and storage of Falcon Shield.

Falcon Shield is a rapidly deployable, scalable and modular system designed to address the threat from low, slow and small unmanned air systems (UAS). Its flexible configurable system enables highly accurate detection, tracking, identification, geo-location and mitigation of UAS threats through a complimentary, fully integrated suite of sensors and effectors.

Falcon Shield’s software Command, Control and Situational Awareness (C2SA) environment provides a modular integration framework and intuitive user interface enabling comprehensive monitoring of the UAS threat environment and delivery of effective threat mitigation.

As a deployable modular system, all components are required to be fully protected and easily handled during transportation. The previously designed and field-proven solution from Barum & Dewar has once again been selected by Leonardo to support its latest contract award.

Commenting on the contract win, Managing Director, David Frame, said “This latest contract award for additional Falcon Shield protective cases from our long-standing client, Leonardo, is testimony to the trusted partnership that has developed between our companies. Our Falcon Shield suite of cases with their custom foam interiors were designed in-house a number of years ago but having been field proven over recent years they remain the ideal protective packaging solution for Leonardo”.
