About Us

Shanghai Advanced Avionics Company Ltd., established in 2005, is a subsidiary company of the China Aeronautical Radio Electronics Research Institute (the 615th Institute). We are a high-tech company with integrated capabilities of research, development, design, manufacturing, sales and services.

We have received the ISO9000 quality system certificate, and are a Shanghai Hi-Tech Company and Little Giant Enterprise in Science and Technology. Since we began, our company has taken on several key research and industrial projects supported by various entities and programs, including the National High Technology Research and Development Program (the 863 Project), the General Armament Department, the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense, the construction project of new navigation system for military aviation, Shanghai Science and Technology Commission and the Innovation Project of China Aviation Industry Corporation. We now hold 11 patents (including 4 patents of invention), 11 software copyright registration certificates, and 3 products transformed from Shanghai Hi-Tech Achievements. Our company was awarded the Second Prize of Maritime Science and Technology and two other awards at or above the provincial, or ministry, level. The main products, such automatic identification systems, have received Certificates for Type Approval from China Classification Society and National Administration of Fishing Vessel Registration, PRC.

Over the years, our company has earned the confidence of a variety of sections of the society. We have also established a long-term and stable client base, and won recognition in the maritime electronics industry, the avionics industry, and more. Our primary products include the automatic identification system and the electronics chart system. We have launched twelve products including the Class A shipborne AIS transponder, the Class B shipborne AIS transponder, the AIS receiver, the AIS Aids to Navigation System, the AIS search and rescue transponder, the AIS base station system, the airborne AIS, the ECS electronic charting system, the BeiDou satellite terminal for fishery, the BeiDou ATON, the RBN-DGPS transponder, the radio communication terminal for fishery. The majority of our products have been widely installed on various vessels in China. Among them, the AIS-B 900 system and the AWENA-1 shipborne ECS system, as the representatives of our leadership in new maritime electronics technology in China, were reported on and shown on the CCTV channel 10 program Unlimited Innovation's episode "China Power: Internet of Things at Sea". Also, our products served in the water traffic safety systems of Shanghai Expo 2010 and Guangzhou Asian Games 2010, and our company received the honorary title of "Youth Civilization" in state-owned key enterprises. Through our constant innovation, we have become the largest AIS equipment R&D base in China, and have established a solid standing in the maritime electronics industry.

Operating with the sole purpose of "Patriotism through Aviation, for Strength of Defense and Wealth of People" established by the AVIC, and practicing the ideas of "Professional Ethics and Integrity" and "Transcend through Innovation", our company has been developed to serve both military and civil markets in the area of avionics. Our avionics product lines include the ADS-B (automatic dependent surveillance - broadcast) air traffic surveillance system for general aviation, the radio navigation equipment for aviation, the centralized monitoring system for airport navigation equipment, the airborne BeiDou terminal, the testing equipment and systems for military and civil avionics (including the testing system for airborne equipment on the ARJ-21 regional jet). We have become part of the aviation industry chain of China.

The objectives of our company's development are a combined development in the avionics and maritime electronics industries, constant increase of our integral capabilities, better products and higher customer satisfaction, and common prosperity with our partners.

Main Products
    1. AIS-B 600 AIS TransponderAIS-B 600 AIS transponder is capable of displaying information of not only the vessel on which it is installed, but also adjacent vessels. It can also provide audio alarms with 3 levels of alarming distance to avoid vessel collisions. It comes with emergency alarm as well. GPS positioning function and easy operated keyboard is offered by our product while the average power consumption of the AIS transponder is less than 6W. The main unit for the AIS transponder has a compact structured shell, is tightly sealed and is capable of long term operation in stringent environments. Meanwhile, it features small size and light weight, making it convenient for installation and maintenance.
    1. ECS Electronic Chart SystemThe AWENA-1 electronic chart system is an intelligent navigation device. It is a comprehensive combination of vessel collision avoidance system and ENC database in line with IHO S-57 standard. The colors, symbols and layers of the electronic chart all conform to IHO S-52 standard. The ECS complies with Class A Vessel Operation, Performance and Test Requirements, issued by Maritime Safety Administration of China. And it is also compliant with IEC 62376 for ECS, IEC 62288 and IEC 60945.
