After three weeks of intense discussions between FLARM Technology and DSX, no joint position acceptable for both parties for a future collaboration and operational compatibility could be agreed. Therefore talks have been stopped and both parties will pursue their own strategy.
The negotiations were conducted under confidentiality thus no details will be disseminated. The negotiations covered general as well as technical, regulatory, intellectual property and commercial aspects. While many positions converged, no common position could be established in any of these aspects.
The way Flarm negotiates with other companies – also those competing with our own products – needs to ensure safe interoperability for the benefit of all pilots, must be applicable to 3rd party companies as well, should not result in a disadvantage to current and long-time partners and manufacturers, and must base on mutual trust as well as economic principles.
