Lighting and signalling technologies sought for naval Visual Landing Aids system

Country of Origin: Italy
Reference Number: TRIT20160915004
Publication Date: 16 September 2016


An important Italian company working in naval defence products has developed solutions for marine handling and lighting technologies, with niche applications. The company is looking for breakthrough technologies to be applied to its visual landing aids products. They are seeking academia and industry partners working in lighting and signalling systems under technical or research cooperation agreement.


This Italian company is considered a leading one in the naval defence sector. The company operates in the field of naval products (mainly defence) and provides solutions for marine handling and lighting technologies, with niche applications. The company is considered a world leader especially in Naval Visual Landing Aids. For the last 12 years it has been part of an United States corporation, while being before family-owned (founded in 1834). It was the first company to introduce LED replacing halogen lights in early 2000s. 

One of the company's main competitive advantages lies in the integration of mechanics, electronics, optics and hydraulics to respond to evolving market requirements.

Its main product and services cover the following fields:
- Visual Landing Aids (systems helping a helicopter landing on earth, offshore platforms, naval bridges)
- complex handling systems (special doors, cranes, launch and recovery systems) including naval applications
- Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) and Underwater Vehicles (naval drones, remotely operated vehicles - ROV)

The company is looking for new technologies in the optical (lighting and signaling) sector for applications in naval, land and offshore operations. The aim is to speed up technology insertions and applications of the existing technologies in the field.

The Italian-based company is looking to work with universities, research centers and companies active in the same sector that produces and are researching on such technologies for lighting and signaling systems. Research or technical cooperation agreement is sought.


Expertise sought

Expertise sought is of breakthrough technologies in lighting and signaling systems to be applied to the existing range of Visual Aids products developed up to now. The innovative aspects required should be innovation and system integration. 

Naval, land and offshore operations.

The ideal partner is researching on, or produces, signalling and management of lighting sources. Collaboration with universities, research centers and companies is sought in order to speed up technology insertions.

Partners technologies considered can be at any stage of development, preferably at a low Technology Readiness Level (TRL).

Requested partner

- Type of partner sought: Industry, Academia, research centres
- Specific area of activity of the partner: research and production of lighting and signaling systems. Applications will adapt to naval defence sector.
- Task to be performed: research, product customization, adaptation, exploration of new applications on existing products developed by the Italian company.
