Jul 3, 2018 - STAR NAVIGATION ANNOUNCES STAR-LSAMM ™ LAND AMBULANCE SYSTEM

TORONTO, Ontario, July 3, 2018 - Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (CSE: SNA) (OTCQB:
SNAVF) ("Star” or the “Company”) recently announced that its R&D Department had completed
development of its new In-Flight System Aided Medical Monitoring system (STAR-ISAMM™”)
for helicopter MEDEVAC applications (See June 4th News Release). Star is again pleased to
announce that its R&D Department has now completed development of its Land System Aided
Medical Monitoring system (“STAR-LSAMM™”) for ground ambulance applications. Utilizing
Star’s patented STAR-A.D.S. ® technology, (on-board, real-time flight data monitoring and
tracking system), STAR-LSAMM™ directly addresses the need to improve the transmission of
the medical data of a patient to a hospital, while still in transit. The ground STAR-LSAMM™ unit
is smaller, lighter, and perfectly adapted to ground transportation environment, while the STARISAMM™
is for airborne applications..
 
The STAR-LSAMM™ system interfaces with existing bio-medical equipment aboard the
Emergency Service Ground Vehicle. 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.
Star is in discussions with several individuals in the Emergency Medical Service industry. These
recent breakthroughs in Star’s technology have garnered the interest of some large companies
operating in that field.
 
The STAR-LSAMM™ prototype has been successfully demonstrated and Star expects that this
will significantly enhance:
 
• Interfacing with EMS, on the ground, improving on scene care and care in transit.
• providing better patient care with a seamless hospital virtual environment. The patient will be
already ‘admitted’ to the hospital care service while being transported.
Star intends to start fielding the STAR-LSAMM™ system right away
Star’s R&D department will continue to rapidly develop the system, with the addition of new
features through technological evolution.

Jun 11, 2018 - Star Confirms GADSS Compatibility

TORONTO, Ontario, June 11, 2018 - Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (CSE: SNA) (OTCQB: SNAVF) ("Star” or the “Company”)  having participated in the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (“ICAO”)  Working Groups, was pleased to see that ICAO’s Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (“GADSS”) Advisory Group, formed in 2014, updated their Concept of Operations and Standard and Recommended Practices late last year. 
 
The tragedies of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 and Air France flight 447 highlighted the limitations in the current air navigation system, which have hampered timely identification and localisation of aircraft in distress. This has also significantly hindered effective search and rescue efforts and recovery operations. On the rare occasions when accidents occur, rescuing survivors has the highest priority, followed by the recovery of the flight recorders. Analysis of data from these recorders is usually key to identifying the cause of the accident, and contributes towards enhancing safety. 
 
In May 2014, ICAO convened a multi?disciplinary meeting with States, Industry, and related specialists to reach a common agreement in making global aircraft tracking a priority. 
 
 ICAO’s Concept of Operations recommends that starting in November 2018, there should be autonomous aircraft flight tracking every 15 minutes over oceanic areas, and as of January 2021, that there should be autonomous location and tracking of aircraft in distress at least once every minute. 
 
Star’s STAR-A.D.S. ® System already exceeds compliance with all of the ICAO GADSS recommendations and evolutions planned from 2018 to 2021 and beyond.
 
It can securely and automatically track any type of retrofitted aircraft, worldwide.
 
Location and general flight data (position, flight level, heading etc.) are sent at pre-determined intervals on a routine flight, while all data are recorded. It can transmit real-time flight data and system alerts. The precision of localization of the system is within 1NM. 
 
The STAR-A.D.S. ® System is compatible and fits with all existing information and data management procedures. All transmissions are encrypted and secured.  
 
  2  For future evolutions of the recommendation dealing with the recovery of flight data (and as the system records all relevant data on-board), it can automatically and securely download information directly to the ground as a ‘virtual black box’. 
 
In addition, the STAR-A.D.S. ® system, upon completion of the flight, provides automatic generation of all End of Flight Reports, and historical flight information filing for post flight data mining.
