TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 20, 2017) - Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (CSE:SNA)(CSE:SNA.CN)(OTCBB:SNAVF) ("Star" or the "Company) is pleased to announce 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 U.S. Navy TFEL multi-function displays.
This agreement covers all maintenance work on existing displays used on P3 maritime aircraft directly supported by the OEM until 2020.
This extension results from a very good relationship having been developed between the companies over the past years during which STAR maintained the displays under ad-hoc purchase orders. It also illustrates the ability of STAR to support a major avionics player, with the added benefit of direct Canadian content.
In addition, 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.
