For the past 16 years S-PLANE has been specialising in the delivery of complete and comprehensive certification-ready Automation, Simulation, Communication and Ground Control Solutions for manned, unmanned and optionally piloted ISR and cargo transport aircraft systems. S-PLANE combines its market-leading products with system engineering, integration, testing and certification support services to customise and deliver these solutions. These solutions and S-PLANE’s application experience cover a large range of airborne systems, including fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft (100 kg to more than 20 ton GMTOW) intended for civil and military missions. Most notably, these Solutions are used to create Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Optionally Piloted Systems (OPS), as well as special mission Manned Aircraft that become easily convertible to UAS or OPS.
S-PLANE’s slogan, Automation Innovation, accurately captures the company’s outlook and key strategic focus. All of our products are unique in their respective classes, in terms of a combination of features and functionalities, specifications, ease of use, certification-readiness, modularity, interoperability and the ability to rapidly customise them with minimal effort to fit a wide variety of airborne systems. Automation solutions are also comprehensive, meaning that we completely automate aircraft, from automated flight control, sub-system, fuel and power management to mission and communication management. S-PLANE’s exceptional range of products and engineering support is unparalleled in the industry (ask our customers!). Our approach is to work with and understand customer requirements, before tailoring innovative solutions to precisely meet their needs. Solutions are realised through application and adaptation of mature baseline products, with added strategic custom and cooperative development and training, as required. Our typical customers are aircraft system integrators, aircraft manufacturers, service providers and government agencies.
Products are qualified and certified to appropriate industrial, aeronautical and military standards. Highly qualified and experienced staff are well versed in professional, standards-based system, safety, software and hardware engineering, required to meet the safety, reliability and quality requirements of the aerospace and defence industries. S-PLANE prides itself in responsible and professional product development, sensible market and business strategies, and above all: customer satisfaction!
