SkyTrac explores possibilities with Scandinavian
The SA Group's global presence will enable SkyTrac to explore core segments such as unmanned, military, helicopters and business aviation. Its offerings include STC development and installation kit manufacturing.
SkyTrac has systems certified on over 900 airframes and an online data management portal that is the go-to tool for over 7,500 global users.

SkyTrac Systems is partnering with Scandinavian Avionics (part of The SA Group), a provider of avionics solutions for civil and military aircraft and UAS segments located in Billund, Denmark. 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 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 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,” says Jan van der Heul, VP 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. Its 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,” adds 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, which is providing solutions, rather than products for our customers.”
