Leonardo to Provide Emergency Communications for Italian Car Race
Wednesday, October 21, 2020 | Comments

The 1000 Miglia race, a re-enactment of the historic Italian long-distance motorsport competition originally held from 1927 to 1957, selected Leonardo as its security partner. The race, now in its 38th year, will see 400 crews compete from 22 – 25 October on the traditional route, which winds from Brescia, Italy, to Rome and back.

Leonardo will support the 1000 Miglia along the entire route, putting its skills, technologies and mobile mission-critical communications technologies to work in order to deliver the effective, coordinated and timely management of field personnel and vehicles. Throughout, the main goal will be to make the whole experience safer for participants, the public and local communities. Part of the partnership will see Leonardo providing an integrated mobile security system, with immediate response capabilities on hand for emergency situations. The solution, installed on- board a special vehicle, is equipped with a complete operational control room which integrates advanced technologies. These include a multitechnology mission-critical radio system for secure and reliable voice and data communications and video surveillance. Meanwhile, the company’s mission-critical push-to-talk (MCPTT) application for Android mobile devices will ensure interoperability between operators monitoring the strategic points along the race route by converting android devices into Professional Mobile Radios (PMR).

As experts in protecting critical infrastructure, Leonardo has provided high-tech security for a number of major events including the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics, the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, EXPO 2015, and the 2014 and 2018 Commonwealth Games. Next year, the company will contribute to the safe conduct of the World Ski Championships.
