Leonardo plays a key role in the Typhoon programme, which is a collaboration between Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany and Spain. Leonardo is responsible for delivering over 60% of the Eurofighter Typhoon's on-board avionics, leading the consortia that develop both the multi-role combat aircraft's Radar and Defensive Aid Sub-System from our Edinburgh and Luton sites respectively. Additionally, Leonardo’s Aircraft Division has a 19% programme share and a final assembly line in Caselle, near Turin. With avionics and sensors developed by the company’s Electronics Division, Leonardo’s total programme share is 36%.
