The Paramount Group announced the signature of an MoU with S-PLANE at AAD 2022 this week. Under the terms of the MoU, S-PLANE and Paramount intend to collaborate on various projects. Notably, this includes the integration of S-PLANE’s ParagonISR mission software into Paramount’s Mwari aircraft and the conversion of the Mwari into an Optionally Piloted System (OPS) using S-PLANE’s X-KIT. The two companies also intend to collaborate on strategic sea and land vehicle initiatives. Read the complete press release in the AAD 2022 Daily, Edition 3.

S-PLANE Automation’s X-KIT has been selected by Airbus UpNext for its Extra Performance Wing demonstrator project. The X-KIT will be used to safely and reliably ensure the remote control of a Cessna Citation VII business jet that will fly breakthrough wing technologies.
S-PLANE‘s X-KIT is a set of airborne and ground equipment facilitating the conversion of human-piloted aircraft into prototype and production Unmanned Airborne Systems (UAS) or Optionally Piloted Systems (OPS). At the heart of the X-KIT is an appliance known as the X-CUBE.
S-PLANE will be joining Hensoldt on their stand at the AAD 2022 expo from 21 to 25 September 2022 to support live flight demonstrations of our X-KIT Lite mission system tightly integrated with Hensoldt’s advanced optronics.
The X-KIT Lite (including our Paragon software suite) is used to convert aircraft into manned airborne surveillance systems with advanced onboard and remote exploitation of mission payloads. The full set of X-KIT equipment takes the human out of the cockpit and converts the aircraft into a powerful unmanned or optionally piloted ISR system.
S-PLANE’s Quality Management System (QMS) was recently certified as AS9100D compliant by Lloyd’s Register. After adopting the principles of AS9100 a little over 5 years ago, S-PLANE decided to approach the world’s premier quality assessors for formal certification this year. According to Dr. Thomas Jones, the CEO of S-PLANE: “This was an important step to streamline supply chain integration with large system integrators and to help give large and small clients the peace of mind they need when selecting S-PLANE solutions as building blocks within safety-critical production systems”.
The S-PLANE X-KIT is used to convert manned and unmanned aircraft into fully operational and certified manned, unmanned and optionally piloted Airborne ISR Systems. S-PLANE’s clients are using these systems in real-world operations. Operations include border protection, anti-poaching, fisheries protection, fire-fighting, environmental protection, infrastructure inspection as well as security and military operations.
