World's First Photovoltaic Smart Dimmable Aircraft Window To Be Unveiled At NBAA 2013 In Las Vegas

BRIGNAIS, France and WOODBURY, N.Y., Sept. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SPD-Smart dimmable windows are increasingly in demand by aerospace OEMs, airlines, operators and aircraft owners. Now, the many practical, technical, and financial benefits of solar power can be added to the instant switching speed, wide range of light transmission, and relief from light, glare and heat already provided by SPD-Smart windows. Vision Systems, a licensee of Research Frontiers Inc. (Nasdaq:REFR), has announced it will offer an SPD-Smart dimmable window ("Energia") that can operate without using the aircraft's electrical system. Energia integrates an optically clear layer that is capable of producing its own energy from the sun or artificial light sources.

Energia facilitates the process of installing dimmable windows on new production and aftermarket aircraft – Energia requires no modifications to the aircraft's existing electrical system, because it is completely independent from the cabin's wiring.

Vision Systems' SPD-Smart electronically dimmable windows offer instant and precise light-control at all levels to provide a solar protection solution that enhances comfort and improves passengers' experience on aircraft.

Vision Systems has also announced their partnership with Sunpartner Technologies, the inventor and manufacturer of the transparent photovoltaic panel, and Energia was developed under license from Research Frontiers, the inventor of SPD-Smart light-control technology, and as a collaboration between these companies.

Vision Systems has filed for patent protection on this innovation in the aircraft industry.

Vision Systems will unveil Energia at their booth (C9522) at the 2013 NBAA, to be held October 22-24 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
