Bingen, WA Capital Aircraft Services (CAPAIR) and Sagetech Avionics proudly announces their partnership to leverage Sagetech’s Avionics solutions within the UAM, AMM, and UAS industries to advance autonomy and UAS integration in the Australian market. As the reseller for Sagetech Avionics in Australia, CAPAIR will utilize their deep aviation expertise and longstanding relationships to revolutionize the country’s aerospace industry with cutting-edge technology and unparalleled support.

CAPAIR’s decision to align with Sagetech Avionics stems from a shared vision of enhancing airspace safety through technological innovation. Sagetech’s commitment to advancing UAS integration into national airspace resonates deeply with CAPAIR’s mission to provide comprehensive situational awareness for all airspace users, whether crewed or uncrewed. This synergy is underscored by Sagetech’s dedication to developing cooperative Detect and Avoid (DAA) solutions, essential for the seamless integration of beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) UAS operations.

Furthermore, Sagetech Avionics’ robust portfolio of civil, defence transponders and DAA solutions aligns perfectly with CAPAIR’s focus on supporting Australian UAS operations, particularly in defence applications. With Sagetech’s expertise and CAPAIR’s extensive experience spanning over 40 years in crewed avionics, this partnership promises to deliver unmatched value to the Australian aerospace sector.

Sagetech provides maximum capability in a micro-SWaP solution. CAPAIR will focus on selling Sagetech’s product suite of air safety solutions, such as:

  • MX12B transponder – the world’s only micro IFF Mode 5 transponder certified to meet both crewed and uncrewed requirements of the DOD AIMS Mk XIIB spec with Mode 5 Level 2B Out. It is 93% smaller, 6x lighter, and 5x cheaper compared to competitive products.
  • ACAS X DAA software – paving the way for BVLOS flight, creating safer skies for a world where crewed and uncrewed aircraft will share airspace. 

Neil Allen, Managing Director of Capital Aircraft Services, expressed his enthusiasm about the collaboration, stating,

“Capital Aircraft Services is proud to be representing Sagetech Avionics in Australia. Our shared vision for UAS integration into crewed airspace is supported by Sagetech’s UAS surveillance products for defence and their development of a cooperative DAA solution. We see a growing need for such products in our region and are excited to bring this leading technology to Australia and back it up with local support for both our defence and commercial UAS customers.”

Through this strategic partnership, CAPAIR and Sagetech Avionics are poised to drive innovation, safety, and efficiency in Australian airspace, setting a new standard for UAS operations and integration.
