Capital Aircraft Services (CAPAIR) is set to utilize its deep aviation expertise and longstanding relationships to revolutionize Australia’s aerospace industry with cutting-edge technology and unparalleled support.

CAPAIR will work with Sagetech Avionics to leverage its maximum capability micro-SWaP solutions within the urban air mobility (UAM), advanced air mobility (AAM), and unmanned aerial systems (UAS) industries, aiming to advance autonomy and UAS integration in Australia. 

CAPAIR will focus on selling Sagetech’s product suite of air safety solutions, including:

  • 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 beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) flight, creating safer skies for a world where crewed and uncrewed aircraft will share airspace. 

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.

Sagetech Avionics’ robust portfolio of civil, defense transponders and Detect and Avoid (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.

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 DAA solutions, essential for the seamless integration of BVLOS UAS operations.

“Capital Aircraft Services is proud to be representing Sagetech Avionics in Australia,” commented Neil Allen, Managing Director of Capital Aircraft Services, expressing his enthusiasm about the collaboration.

Allen continued; “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.”
