Project & Costumer References

The HiCo Group is a member of the AAI and therefore also a full member of ASD (Aerospace & Defence Industries Association of Europe). In 2006 HiCo was affiliated to the TPSMG (Technical Publications Specification Maintenance Group) of ASD – an international standardisation board for the further development of S1000D®. Hence, Werner M. Schadelbauer, CEO of the HiCo Group, is the Austrian industry representative in the S1000D® Steering Committee since 2008.
