Lockheed Martin signs repair, maintenance agreement with Star Navigation

Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (CSE:SNA, SNA.CN)(OTCBB:SNAVF) has announced that Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems has extended its relationship with STAR´s Man Machine Interface Division (STAR-MMI) through a multi-year agreement for the repair and maintenance of US Navy TFEL multi-function displays, the company said.

The agreement covers all maintenance work on existing displays used on P3 maritime aircraft directly supported by the OEM until 2020. This extension illustrates the ability of STAR to support a major avionics player, with the added benefit of direct Canadian content.

Two other major aerospace companies have shipped similar displays to STAR for repair under specific purchase orders. Star is actively pursuing maintenance, repair and upgrade business with operators and integrators in order to develop this business together with the STAR-A.D.S. activities.

Star Navigation Systems Group´s patented In-flight Safety Monitoring System, STAR-ISMS, is the heart of the STAR-A.D.S. System. It features in-flight data-analysis, monitoring, and diagnostics with a real-time connection between aircraft and ground that enhances aviation safety and improves fleet management while reducing costs for the operator.

Star´s MMI Division designs and manufactures high performance, mission critical, flight deck flat panel displays for defence and commercial aviation industries worldwide.
