An alliance of MROs and lighting specialists have are teaming up to explore new ways of developing and bringing lighting technology to the commercial aerospace market.
Lighting specialist SCHOTT, along with jetlite, a developer of on-board solutions targeting jetlag, and MRO providers Etihad Engineering and Lufthansa Technik, all recently signed a letter expressing cooperation in further exploring and promoting a new human-centric lighting technology and bringing it to the market.
The collaboration aims at combining SCHOTT’s expertise in cabin lighting systems, jetlite’s holistic and scientifically-proven solution for jetlag reduction and Etihad Engineering’s and Lufthansa Technik’s expertise for aircraft systems integration, design certification, and innovation capabilities.
The jointly developed system makes use of SCHOTT’s HelioJet light emitting diode cabin illumination technology that enables a homogeneous light distribution as well as a high color stability throughout the cabin. It is combined with jetlite’s intelligent automation software integrated into Lufthansa Technik’s nice cabin lighting control system.
