Jan. 2, 2008, Toronto – Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. is pleased to announce its strategic partnership with AeroSoft Systems Inc.
       
AeroSoft is a privately held Canadian company which has been providing optimized software
solutions for management of technical operations to the commercial aviation industry
for the past 10 years.

AeroSoft flagship products DigiMAINT and WebPMI support technical operations for more
than 1500 aircraft at over 30 airlines and MRO's  globally on a 7 x 24 x 365 basis.

In conjunction with Star's In-Flight Safety Monitoring System and its existing suite of
complementary products, this strategic partnership gives Star a tremendous opportunity to
leverage AeroSoft's existing customer base by providing them with a
comprehensive solution customized to their individual needs and requirements.

AeroSoft CEO Thanos Kaponeridis stated "This strategic partnership with
Star Navigation Systems positions our integrated solutions well ahead of the
competition. We are now offering a 'cradle to grave' handling of maintenance
data from the time a fault code is registered on the aircraft through its
trouble shooting cycle to the interface with the Maintenance Management
System, the Flight Operations System, the Digital Document Management System
and through the scheduling of the work and updating of the technical records
and configuration.

This type of solution is unique and only offered in customized implementations
by the large airframe OEM's using large ERP systems. The AeroSoft/STAR integration
is the only solution including a real-time data acquisition capability, built on
competitively priced and proven systems and available to all operators and MRO'S."
       
Star Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Mr. Amir Bhatti said, "This
high value venture will give us the technological tools required in order to
extend the capabilities of our existing systems and bring them to a platform
where all the operations of an operator would be on one page, whether
management or finance, engineering and maintenance, flight operations or
flight safety. This move will also have significant effect on ETOPS
(Extended-Range Twin-Engine Operations) monitoring, including but not limited
to MOQA (Maintenance Operations Quality Assurance).
       
AeroSoft will be represented by Star Navigation in February 2008 at the
Singapore Air Show, the largest Air Show in Asia.
