Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SNA) ("Star" or the "Company"), is very pleased to announce that final DO-160E testing on its STAR-ISMS® Generation 2 Unit ("G2") has now been completed.

The G2, built to Star's specifications, was designed and manufactured for Star by Luxell Technologies Inc., incorporates additional and upgraded features, is smaller and lighter than the original In-Flight Safety Monitoring System and can be offered at a lower price point.
The certification testing process in the aviation industry is very complex and rigorous.

The first installation of the new G2 is expected to take place aboard a Midwest Airlines (Egypt), Boeing 737-800 aircraft, with STC approval expected in February. Star appreciates Midwest Airlines' patience as we have worked to finalize the new G2 product.
Viraf S. Kapadia, Star's founder and CEO stated: "Star, through its G2 unit, continues to refine and expand the already significant capabilities of the overall STAR-ISMS® System, help to improve safety in the air, and offer airline operators the chance to reduce costs and increase operational efficiencies."
