Star Navigation Thanks Premier Ford for Supporting Ontario Business

TORONTO, Feb. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (CSE:SNA) (SNAVF) (SNA.CN) ("Star" or the "Company") wishes to thank Ontario Premier Doug Ford for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit our new Head Office in Brampton.

During his visit, Premier Ford had a chance to meet with both Senior Management and staff, and tour our new facility.

One of the highlights of the tour was a comprehensive audio-visual briefing on Star’s new MEDEVAC solutions, STAR-ISAMM™ and STAR-LSAMM™. The STAR-ISAMM™ system interfaces with existing bio-medical patient monitoring equipment aboard a MEDEVAC helicopter. It securely transmits the patients’ vital signs and other critical information directly to receiving hospital physicians through SATCOM or GSM, as well as providing tracking and location of the vehicle. This allows the early assessment and initiation of the best possible care plan, well before the patient arrives. The System is equally adaptable to both ambulance and commercial airline usage.

The Premier was also briefed on the full range of Star’s other products, all of which are based on Star’s patented ISMS® technology and all of which were developed here in Ontario. The briefing reviewed the flagship STAR-A.D.S. ® System, a real time, satellite based, in-flight safety monitoring system, and its variants STAR-TTT™ and STAR-V-trk™.

In his closing remarks, Premier Ford graciously thanked Star’s management for the chance to learn about Star’s new technologies, which he said were the kind of investor supported entrepreneurial initiatives that are the basis for oppourtunities and growth in Ontario.

Mr. Viraf Kapadia, Chairman and CEO of Star said:

“Having the chance to discuss Star’s solutions for improvements in health care through our MEDEVAC products was most gratifying. Premier Ford is certainly a very strong proponent of Ontario business and we look forward to working with him and his government in the future.”
