Eurocopter's mock-up provides a first-hand, must-see experience of the EC175's elegant interior. A key feature of that interior is Vision Systems' SPD-Smart Noctis window and partition products that offer complete control of daylight entering the cabin, instantly transform the look of the interior at the touch of a button, and synergistically complement other cabin systems for an unequalled passenger experience.

SPD-Smart electronically dimmable windows and partitions offer instant and precise light-control at all levels to provide aircraft OEMs and operators with a solar protection solution that enhances comfort and improves fuel efficiency. Shades or blinds can be eliminated because they provide on-demand blackout solar protection and complete privacy. Vision Systems' SPD-Smart products offer integrated electronics and a control panel directly on the aesthetically attractive window reveal.

Vision Systems has supplied the EC175 mock-up with two large SPD-Smart Noctis windows and an SPD-Smart Noctis interior partition. Vision Systems also supplies the cabin management system (CMS) and additional systems including in-flight entertainment and WiFi access. The CMS controls the SPD-Smart Noctis products to optimally manage the amount of daylight in the EC175 mock-up's interior. This ensures that passengers travel with the utmost comfort, productivity and control over their cabin environment. Passengers are able to do what they want when they want – whether it's working on their computers or smart devices, browsing the internet, enjoying entertainment, or resting – all without worrying about excessive daylight levels or bothersome glare.
