Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS)

Star Navigation facilitates GADSS’s Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) that airlines and aircraft operators utilize for aircraft / fleet tracking in normal conditions as well as in distress.

  • Mandatory ICAO Regulation – Star Solution Meets and Exceeds ICAO Annex 6, Part 1 GADSS compliance
  • Aircraft in Distress – Stream essential DFDR Data in Real Time – ‘Autonomous distress flight tracking’
  • Stay connected, stay informed – handle Irregular Operations (IROPS) with Star Navigation solutions
  • Post flight localization, recovery and analysis

Star Navigation leverages “LIVE FLIGHT DATA ANALYSIS” (Live FDA)
Provide ‘proactive’ instant value by enhancing Safety, Performance and Profitability Real insights on Sustainable Environment with saving on Carbon emissions.


  • Gaps in worldwide aircraft tracking to meet ICAO’s Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS) requirement
  • Delayed FOQA Analysis Report due to untimely manual data extraction
  • Inefficient real time aircraft and fleet location tracking
  • Reliance on Digital Flight Data Recorder (DFDR) for post-accident investigation
  • Lack of Safety record keeping
  • Continuous close monitoring of aircraft parameters from power-on to power-off to detect and transmit exceedances and alerts through satellites
  • Continuous transmission of flight location, heading, speed and altitude every 2 minutes through ‘Tweets’
  • Continuous transmission of customizable flight parameters every 4 minutes through Heartbeats’


  • Inefficient ‘Engine Condition Trend Analysis’ due to untimely manual data extraction
  • Lack of real time Aircraft Health Monitoring of entire airline fleet during all phases
  • Inefficient and manual generation of End-of-Flight Operations and Maintenance reports
  • Lack of timely post-flight data from international airport hubs
  • Lack of a centralized management tool giving real time operational picture of fleet, performance, safety and insights into fuel consumption, maintenance and financial reports
  • Automatic post flight data transmission providing timely Engine Condition Monitoring reports to reduce and forecast unscheduled engine maintenance events through data analysis and Predictive Maintenance


  • Airline is currently receiving aircraft data through ACARS, based on line of sight VHF transmission
  • Airline doesn’t have latest real time data for ECM, FOQA, MOQA, Fuel Consumption and OOOI
  • Airline receives delayed data analytics from third party
  • Lack of historical data allowing for data mining, forecasting and analysis
  • Airline receives reactive, untimely post-flight analysis reports leading to missed opportunity to fix issues
  • Lost Revenues due to high costs of unplanned Maintenance and Aircraft on Ground (AOG) events


  • Precise measurement of fuel burns – gate to gate
  • Prepare trends on aircraft systems to detect changes in fuel consumption
  • Measure contributory factors towards increasing carbon footprint
  • Manage your Carbon credits with precision
  • Reduction in Carbon emissions equals greener environment
  • Automated digital end of flight reports – Go paperless – Go green!

Star Navigation Design House

We coordinate with Transport Canada and FAA for all required retrofit Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs). Our in-house capability allows us to reduce the lead time significantly. Star Navigation design house is capable to produce STC design on any aircraft. A few examples of STCs.
