This company uses a somewhat similar business plan in that they install their equipment on commercial, private and even (according to rumour) US and Canadian Military aircraft. They then provide services as requested by the company for all sorts of stuff such as "blue box", which supplements to old flaming hole in the ground or bottom of the ocean "black box" as the information is back at home base.

Ironically they just this morning received their activation Supplemental Type Certificate ("STC") for its Automated Flight Information Reporting System ("AFIRS(TM)") 228 on the Boeing 777 model aircraft from Transport Canada. This was the final STC for the Boeing series which includes 737, 747, 757, 767 and now 777.

For non-aircraft types you need an STC to install just about any new piece of equipment (especially if it involves electronics) for each "type".

They also have an STC for some of the Airbus aircraft and several business jets. The Airbus 320 and the new Bombardier C series will have the equipment installed OEM on the production line.

Profits!!!.... chuckle they missed by only a penny in one of their recent quarters. }};-D

I own a position mostly for monitoring but have a feeling they will become a division of L-3 Communications (LLL)in the not too distant future.
