Jim Forbes of Leonardo talked about the manufacture of equipment for RADAR at the LRS meeting on 22nd March 2017.

He writes: "Leonardo is a multinational defence company specialising mainly in military products. The Edinburgh division, which traces its roots back to Ferranti in 1942, specialises in Radar systems and in Lasers. For the past 25 years or so I’ve worked on the manufacture of complex microwave modules for a large number of the company’s products.
