Elliott Aviation: Electronic Window Shade and Lighting Systems
Elliott Aviation has designed a Prizm brand LED lighting system as well as an electronically dimmable Smart Vision Shades system. Elliot has been granted a Supplemental Type Certification (STC) to use these both systems on aircraft. The lighting and shade systems are currently being manufactured and will be available for use by early 2019 for approved dealers and aircraft manufacturers. The STC installation for both systems was done in a Cessna Citation Excel.
Both the LED lighting and Smart Vision dimmable shade systems can be controlled through the Prizm app. The cabin controller can also control the lighting system. However, the Prizm app includes preset lighting conditions for customers to use and enjoy. The multi-color LED lighting features full-color spectrum mood lighting. It can also be used for upwash, downwash, windows, cup holders, the galley, and more.
The Smart-Vision Shades uses electronic dimmable film on the interior of the plane's windows. It is available in five different colors. Window films have the ability to be controlled individually as well. These films are capable of blocking 99 percent of UV rays.
According to Mark Wilken, the Vice President of the Avionics Programs and Operational Logistics for Elliott Aviation, aircraft repair stations, and refurbishment stations have been looking for a solution that is both well-designed and cost-effective for LED lighting and electronically dimmable window shades. He also states how these systems
"are easy to use, easy to install, and will be available at a price point that is affordable to the end-user."
It's expected that both systems will be very popular with business jets like the Cessna Citations.
