Beechjet 400A To Use I-Shade Smart Windows Alongside Venue CMS

Nextant Aerospace : 08 April, 2010  (New Product)
Seamless environment management to feature in the Beechjet 400A cabin with equipment selected from Rockwell Collins and InspecTech Aero Service
Beechjet 400A To Use I-Shade Smart Windows Alongside Venue CMS
Nextant Aerospace has selected the I-Shade Cabin Light Management System (CLMS) from InspecTech Aero Service to electronically control the amount of light entering the cabin of its 400NEXT remanufactured Beechjet 400A. The I-Shade smart windows are integrated into the Rockwell Collins’ Venue cabin management system (CMS) on the 400NEXT to create a seamless cabin environment management system.

Traditional window shades control sunlight intensity and glare at the expense of outside view. The 400NEXT I-Shades manage light, glare, and heat by electronically adjusting the amount of light energy that enters the cabin through a solid state filter imbedded in each window inner pane. Efficient cabin daylight management enhances customer experience in the 400NEXT whether working, resting, or watching a High Definition Movie.

The windows can also be turned opaque upon selection from the Venue Seat Switch module or from the cockpit when total privacy is desired.

James Miller, President of Nextant Aerospace, noted: “This remarkable cabin light management system fits perfectly with our mission to modernize the cabin of the 400NEXT and to offer leading edge cabin amenities. In February, we conducted the first flight of a fully equipped Phase 1 400NEXT aircraft and the I-Shades’ benefits were compelling. I compliment the fine collaborative work of InspecTech and Rockwell Collins in integrating I-Shades with the Venue CMS. We look forward to having others experience the comfort and utility of I-Shade dimmable windows.”

I-Shades utilize two advanced light-control films enclosed between thin plastic layers. SPD-Smart film provides for a range of tints (>99.5% light blockage to fully clear) where light transmission can be rapidly varied to any degree desired. APD film provides for on-demand privacy at any light transmission level. I-Shades are the only window shades that control light while preserving views, and also provide 100% privacy even when light is allowed to pass through the window for natural day lighting.

400NEXT I-Shades provide an unequalled combination of additional features including:

* Heat control when on the ground – I-Shades automatically block heat when unpowered,
* 99.9% protection from damaging ultraviolet (UV) light,
* Use of lightweight, impact-resistant polycarbonate,
* Reliability - no moving parts – and durability,
* Cabin noise reduction due to multi-layer film fabrication.
