Strategic partnership formed between Diamond Airborne Sensing GmbH and the Scotty Group

Scotty Group PLC and Diamond Airborne Sensing GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH, announce that they have signed an exclusive agreement to deliver their equipment together with Diamond aeroplanes. Diamond Airborne Sensing specializes in multi-purpose platform aircraft that serve as aerial sensor carriers.

Diamond Aircraft Industries is a worldwide operating composite aircraft manufacturer with offices in major centres across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Diamond Aircraft has over 1200 employees worldwide and has sold more than 3,500 aircraft.

After successful trials and integration of Scotty SATCOM equipment into a DA42 Multi-Purpose Platform (MPP) aircraft, Diamond Airborne Sensing has decided to sign an exclusive agreement with Scotty. Diamond Sensing is equipping the world's second largest manufacturer of light aeroplanes with communication equipment.

The Scotty equipment will be installed on planes for Diamond customers in the security, surveillance and government business. This is a fast growing business area within Diamond Aircraft which produces at the moment around 600 planes yearly. Wolfgang Grumeth, Managing Director of Diamond Airborne Sensing, commented, "The cooperation with Scotty enables us to have a competitive offer for the security and surveillance market for our planes. We evaluated the Scotty equipment and found it as a unique and perfect fit for our customers needs. We will market this solution together with Scotty globally."

Kurt Kerschat, CEO of Scotty, "This cooperation proves that our solution is versatile, unique and perfectly covers the communication needs in the security, surveillance and government markets. I am convinced that this cooperation will be successful for Scotty as well as for Diamond. This is the next step towards being chosen supplier to the general aviation industry."
