The Arctic and North Atlantic Security and Emergency Preparedness Network (ARCSAR) project involves 13 countries led by the Joint Rescue and Coordination Center of Northern Norway. Leonardo, through e-GEOS, is the sole industry participant.

Leonardo will support safety, security and sustainable development in the Arctic with its expertise and innovation in a number of areas including satellite monitoring, search and rescue (SAR) helicopters, drones and sensors.

Leonardo will host the first meeting of the ARCSAR project, a five-year EU program funded through the Horizon 2020, which aims to promote collaboration in security, emergency-response activities and sustainable technology development in the Arctic region, in Rome in February.

e-GEOS is owned 80 percent by Telespazio and 20 percent by the Italian Space Agency. ARCSAR involves 21 research institutions and public sector participants.

Leonardo will contribute with its expertise in areas including SAR helicopters such as those already used by Canada, Denmark, Norway and the United Kingdom; radar systems; maritime patrol systems; communications; satellite imagery and analysis; and integrated solutions that can control and mitigate the effects of climate change. Leonardo’s approach to climate change is in line with Sustainable Development Goal 13 of the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda.
