SKYTRAC Systems is partnering with Scandinavian Avionics (the headquarters of The SA Group), the company revealed last Monday. The partnership’s goal is to increase market share for Skytrac’s broadband and midband satcom terminals. The new terminals aim to provide operators with increased capabilities and bandwidth up to 704 kbps.

Scandinavian Avionics provides turn-key avionics solutions for civil and military aircraft, Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), as well as Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) and Supplemental Type Certificates (STC) support. This partnership will enable Skytrac to explore segments such as unmanned, military, helicopters, and business aviation.

“We’re very interested to explore the SDL-350 and ISAT-200A-08 SATCOM systems,” said 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.”

In September, Iridium added Skytrac to its Certus 9810 transceiver manufacturing network.
