Leonardo to Unveil Spider at FIA18

Leonardo will unveil Spider, a new Electronic Warfare (EW) communications intelligence (COMINT) product, at Farnborough International Airshow this week.

With eight Radio Frequency antennas contained within the system, Spider is able to intercept and analyse enemy communications in real time.

The Spider antenna array weighs less than 20kg and fits inside a 1.5 x 0.5 x 0.5m pod, allowing it to be installed on a range of platforms including surveillance aircraft such as the King Air 350, Medium-Altitude Long-Endurance (MALE) remotely-piloted air systems and larger aircraft such as Leonardos ATR-72MP.

Spider can be combined with Leonardos SAGE Electronic Surveillance Measures/electronic intelligence (ESM/ELINT) system to provide a full signals intelligence (SIGINT) capability through a single mission interface. COMINT and ELINT data will be provided to the crew through a single graphical user interface which allows mission commander overview or dedicated COMINT and ELINT analysis.

Trials of Spider were conducted earlier this year and first deliveries are scheduled for 2019.

Spider will be on show at Leonardos stand (L1).
