Terma recently received the formal Certificate of Accreditation of our aviation safety Design Organization under the European Military Aviation Requirements (EMAR21) from the Netherlands Military Aviation Authorities (MAA). This grants Terma privileges to approve own engineering work for aviation application.
This is the first milestone in a series of expected similar certificates from other national MAAs (UK, DK, etc.). The next milestone is a Design Organization Approval (DOA) from the civil European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
These Design Organization approvals/accreditations are strategically important for the aviation-related Terma business as it is becoming a mandatory requirement for getting contracts and delivering products and services to civil and military aviation applications.
The first potential contract to the Royal Netherlands Air Force, where these EMAR21 requirements are called out, is under preparation.
