TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 20, 2013) - Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SNA) ("Star" or the "Company"), announces that it has received a Supplementary Type Certificate validation from the Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority. This validation allows for the installation of Star's STAR-ISMS(R) system aboard a Midwest Airlines (Egypt) Boeing 737-800, in accordance with the purchase agreement between Star and Midwest Airlines (Egypt) ("Midwest").

It is expected that Transport Canada approved Star personnel will travel to Egypt shortly in order to oversee the installation and gather the data required for final operational documentation. Full operation is expected within 45 days, subject to normal regulatory approval.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Midwest for their confidence in Star and the STAR-ISMS(R) system, and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.
