Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (CSE: SNA) (CSE: SNA.CN) (OTCQB: SNAVF) (“Star” or the “Company”) announces that the Company has entered into a multi-pronged cooperation agreement with Airmedic Inc., consisting of the integration of Star’s STAR-ISAMM™ System into the operations of Airmedic’s expanding helicopter and fixed-wing based Emergency Medical System (“EMS”) services.
The parties will subsequently extend their cooperation to the STAR-LSAMM™ System for ground ambulances, eventually providing a complete and seamless electronic medical transport system.
Star and Airmedic will be offering the STAR-ISAMM™ System as part of the Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (“HEMS”) system. STAR-ISAMM™ interfaces with existing bio-medical monitoring equipment on-board. It securely transmits the patients’ vital signs and other critical information directly to receiving hospital physicians, while at the same time providing tracking, location, and Estimated Time of Arrival of the vehicle. The patient, upon arrival at the aircraft, becomes part of the care environment, well before reaching the hospital.
J-L Larmor, V.P. Corporate Development at Star, said:
“The STAR-ISAMM™ and STAR-LSAMM™ Systems provide a unique opportunity to increase the efficiency and quality of EMS services over vast regions, as well as locally, whether air- or ground-based. We are extremely happy to enter into this new collaboration with an experienced and innovative airborne EMS specialist. In addition, the growing Airmedic fleet is based on excellent aircraft and helicopters that play a major role in the EMS market sector.”
