Star penetrates a new niche with resource companies
TORONTO, Aug. 28 /CNW/ - Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (TSX-V: SNA)
("Star" or the "Company"), a leading edge technology company focused on
providing Aerospace Solutions, both hardware and software platforms to assist
aviation operators worldwide, is pleased to announce that it has successfully
completed the installation of 35 TERRASTAR Land Tracking units and a satellite
based terrestrial fleet management solution. (see Press Release May 23, 2008).
"Tethyan Copper", a subsidiary of "Barrick Gold" one of the largest gold
mining companies in the world, is impressed with Star's ground personnel, who
completed the installation on site under tough living and working conditions.
The TERRASTAR system is working well. Star will also benefit from additional
monthly revenues in recurring air time usage. Based on existing usage, Star
revenue from hardware and airtime for the 35 units is expected to be in a
range of a minimum of US$156,000 and a maximum of US$256,000, over a five year
This successfully completed installation develops a new niche market for
Star's TERRASTAR Land Tracking product. Given the recent increase in
profitability for the extraction of precious metals, exploration and
production have increased dramatically worldwide. As many of these resource
companies explore in remote destinations, the TERRASTAR Land Tracking product
is a logical solution for asset management.
