Product Development

Customized avionics and electronic products

In order to ease the operation of certain applications for the operator and to simplify certification aspects, particularly for the aviation industry with very stringent certification requirements, Scandinavian Avionics A/S and SA Technologies AB – members of The SA Group, provides in-house development of intelligent and cost-effective customized avionics and aircraft electronics devices and concepts. 

The customized products are designed to meet a certain demand or niche within the field of electronics, primarily aimed at the aviation industry. However, Scandinavian Avionics A/S and SA Technologies AB also offers development programs for land mobile and maritime applications.

Staffed by a number of highly experienced engineers, the product development division has the advantage of the experience within both operational, installation and certification aspects and consequently is able to avoid potential obstacles at an early stage in a development program.

Based on customer feedback, Scandinavian Avionics A/S and SA Technologies AB continuously identifies areas with great potential for new products that can ease operational, installation and/or certification aspects of certain applications. Over the years, Scandinavian Avionics A/S and SA Technologies AB has developed a number of intelligent products including fleet management systems, ground radios for control tovers, control units for sliding carpet systems, navigator guidance systems for boats, a future proof Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) solution and the latest product in line - a Collision Avoidance, ID and Tracking System for UAVs or other airborne aircraft.

The SA Group is constantly working on new products and ideas based on customer feedback in order to meet general and specific requirements. The SA Group want to offer the market intelligent products that minimize certification costs and optimize efficiency.

Electronic Flight Bag Solution

The EFB solution serves as a good example of the product development capabilities offered by The SA Group.

The SA Group offers a complete turn-key EFB solution including all equipment, certification, installation, training and other support. At the moment the solution is certified for A320, B737, B757, B767, ATP, ATR, Q200 and Q400 aircraft and more aircraft types will follow.

The EFB solution consists of

  • Two COTS tablets as specified by the operator
  • A Data Integration Center (DIC-600) developed by the SA Group for aircraft interface capability
  • Two control panels
  • A separate communication module (ERC-400) that will ease the certification process and future-proof the operator's future communication demands.

The modular tablet based EFB solution from Scandinavian Avionics is a state-of-the-art future proof Class 2 EFB solution which provides the functionality to meet today's operational requirements of airlines and aircraft operators and at the same time is simple to upgrade in the future to meet new requirements and needs.
