Sagetech Avionics is leveraging its solutions within the urban air mobility (UAM), advanced air mobility (AAM), and unmanned aerial systems (UAS) industries by working with Australian company Capital Aircraft Services (CAPAIR), aiming to advance autonomy and UAS integration in the Australian market. 

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

  • MX12B transponder – an 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. Sagetech state that it is 93% smaller, 6x lighter, and 5x cheaper compared to competitive products.
  • MXS Mode S transponder – FAA certified, delivering full power, antenna diversity, and plug-and-play simplicity.
  • ACAS X DAA software – paving the way for BVLOS flight, creating safer skies for a world where crewed and uncrewed aircraft will share airspace. 

CAPAIR assert that it will utilize its 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.

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

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

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.”
