Brampton, Ontario, December 1, 2021. Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (CSE: SNA) (CSE: SNA.CN) (“Star” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with WheelTug plc, the innovative electric taxi company.

The MOU will see the companies cooperate on the collection and analysis of data gathered by Star’s on-board technology and WheelTug Vision, the camera array that complements the main WheelTug e-taxi system. The goal is to maximize the benefits that WheelTug generates for airlines. Star’s solution offers operators, owners, insurers and even ATC, access to granular flight ops information.

Making its debut on a Boeing 737NG aircraft in early 2023, the WheelTug e-taxi system is installed in the nose gear of the aircraft.  WheelTug will allow the pilot to conduct aircraft maneuvers in ramp areas without using the jet engines or connecting a tug.  This will allow individual flights to become faster, safer, and greener, as efficiency gains grow across the airline network.

Amir Bhatti, CEO of Star said, “Collaboration with WheelTug enables us to focus on greener flight operations and greener ground operations. Our solution tracks eight (8) mission critical data streams including the flight data recorder and delivers intelligent analytics. It is exciting to be able to offer customers gate to gate diagnostics and prognostics.”

WheelTug CEO Isaiah Cox said, “Our system will tremendously boost airlines’ efficiency in gate areas, and we look forward to showing our airlines the quality data and analytics provided by Star in order to illustrate exactly how much WheelTug improves these operations.”
