AAR Announces MOU with Vision Systems
AAR has announced it has been selected by Vision Systems to integrate Electronically Dimmable Windows (EDW) solutions for retrofit programs in Asia, Middle East, Africa and North America.
The EDW developed by Vision Systems is based on Suspended Particle Device (SPD) technology used to enhance passengers’ experience by improving visual and thermal comfort. The windows’ sleek, elegant design and their capacity to block heat and noise convey a peaceful, spacious and cooler atmosphere as passengers enter the cabin. Once seated, passengers can regulate daylight, glare and heat entering the aircraft by dimming their window to any level from clear to dark, or set a dark mode if they wish to sleep.
The technology blocks more than 99.9 percent of harmful UV light, which protects the interior from fading. It can be applied to flat or curved surfaces (2D, 3D), plastic or composite glass. The EDW solutions come as a whole to replace the entire inside window including the casing and the dust panel.
The EDWs are already installed in Dassault F5X (skylight), Epic E1000, Airbus Helicopters H175, RUAG’s refurbished Falcon 900 and HondaJet HA-420. There are currently several new projects under way, especially on commercial aircraft.
“Vision Systems’ Electronically Dimmable Windows use technology to create common-sense creature comforts that enhance passenger experience and, at the same time, enable airlines to reinforce their brand and improve customer satisfaction, leading to customer loyalty and retention,” said Michael Leung, Managing Director, AAR Engineering Services-Asia. “AAR is pleased to partner with an innovator such as Vision Systems who, like AAR through our interior modifications, upgrades and installation of world-class cabin solutions, is raising the bar on the passenger experience.”
