Nextant 400XT Aircraft with SPD i-Shade Dimmable Windows on Display at Upcoming NBAA Event
August 9, 2010. Nextant Aerospace has announced that its 400XT aircraft, equipped with SPD-Smart(TM) window shades supplied by Research Frontiers licensee InspecTech Aero Service, will be on display at the NBAA Business Aviation Regional Forum on August 18th at the Waukegan Airport in Illinois.
For display hours and other details see the Nextant Aerospace press release.
In April, Nextant announced the selection of InspecTech’s i-Shade(TM) brand of SPD-Smart cabin windows for the 400XT. Nextant also announced that the i-Shades interface with the Rockwell Collins’ Venue(TM) cabin management system (CMS) on-board the 400XT, to create a seamless cabin environment management system. In that announcement, James Miller, President of Nextant Aerospace, noted: “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.”
To learn more about the selection of i-Shades, and to view a photo of i-Shades on the 400XT, formerly named the 400NEXT, see the April 2010 Nextant Aerospace press release.
InspecTech’s SPD i-Shades instantly regulate light, glare and heat entering the aircraft – from fully clear to completely private, and to any level of view-preserving tint in between. The tint of the i-Shades can be electrically tuned – from each window individually or cabin-wide with a master control.
I-Shade smart windows are now flying on 24 aircraft models worldwide – general and business aviation, transport category and military aircraft. They are flying on new production aircraft and helicopters and as aftermarket products as well. They are the first, and the only, instantly dimmable window system flying today. They are also the only dimmable windows offering 100% privacy.
