Star Navigation Receives FAA Certification for STAR-A.D.S. ® SSU-G3


TORONTO, Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (CSE:SNA) (CSE:SNA) (OTCQB:SNAVF) ("Star" or the "Company"), confirms the granting by the US Federal Aviation Administration ("FAA") of a Supplementary Type Certificate ("STC") for its STAR-A.D.S. ® SSU-G3 tracking and monitoring system.

The STC will initially be used for a Star customer operating an Airbus A310 in the Middle East. It will also facilitate further international sales on retrofit aircraft. 

In particular, this new FAA certification is an important step in Star's efforts to market STAR-A.D.S. ® solutions in North America, the Middle East and Asia.

Mr. Jean-Louis LARMOR, Interim CEO and COO of Star said:

"This FAA STC opens the door to additional sales for Star on retrofit aircraft internationally and comes at a very timely moment in view of the Global Aeronautical Distress Safety System (GADSS) requirements, for tracking and monitoring (see Press Release June 11, 2018).

Star's immediate efforts are also accelerating towards the entry into market of its Emergency Medical Services applications (STAR-ISAMM™ ) for helicopters and small aircraft used as Air Ambulances in North America."
