KELOWNA, BC, November 16, 2020 – SKYTRAC Systems Ltd. (SKYTRAC), a leading intelligent connectivity and satellite communication solutions provider, today announced a partnership with Scandinavian Avionics (HQ of The SA Group), a provider of complete turn-key avionics solutions for civil and military aircraft, and UAS segments. The SA Group has a significant presence, not only as an MRO and STC house, but also with a wide range of other capabilities. The SA Group consists of 11 divisions across Europe, the Middle East, India, and Southeast Asia.

The partnership will increase market share for SKYTRAC’s recently announced broadband and midband SATCOM terminals. The new terminals are set to provide operators with increased capabilities, bandwidth up to 704 kbps, and industry-leading global reliability.

“Scandinavian Avionics is one of the largest international avionics providers and STC houses in aviation. It was an easy decision to partner with the The SA Group to further explore opportunities for our SDL-350 and ISAT-200A-08 broadband and midband SATCOM systems,” mentioned Jan van der Heul, Vice President of Sales at SKYTRAC. “We’re excited to move forward with this partnership.”

The SA Group’s global presence will enable SKYTRAC to explore core segments such as unmanned, military, helicopters and business aviation. Their service offerings include design and STC development, installation kit manufacturing, aircraft modifications, component maintenance and global training solutions for civilian and military segments.

“We’re very interested to explore the SDL-350 and ISAT-200A-08 SATCOM systems,” mentioned Michael Truelsen, CEO of Scandinavian Avionics. “We believe there is a strong market for Iridium Certus to compete with the legacy satellite systems, and we have great expectations for Iridium Certus from our customers as well. In general the entire product range within SKYTRAC’s portfolio fits very well with our current capabilities and offerings, and we share the mindset of SKYTRAC; providing solutions, rather than products for our customers.”
