Rockwell Collins brings award-winning light displays to business jet operators

ORLANDO (October 18, 2018) – Sunny skies no longer have to disappear when the boarding door closes. Rockwell Collins Secant™ Luminous panel, which brings environmental scenery or light displays to life on standard panels inside the aircraft, is now available for business jets.

A Crystal Cabin Award Finalist, Secant Luminous panel utilizes White, RGB, or RGB+W μLED clusters to create a desired display. When the display is disabled, or in a general illumination mode, it appears to be a standard panel within the aircraft. The Secant Luminous panel is the first aircraft mounted display panels using μLEDs as pixels and as general lighting, seamlessly incorporated into the aircraft structural panels.

“Business jet owners can customize the Secant panel to create virtually any lighting environment they desire, whether it's imagery to help passengers sleep, or a source of general lighting,” said Steve Scover, vice president and general manager of Lighting and Integrated Systems at Rockwell Collins. “The Secant panel sets the tone for the passenger’s visual expedition.”

Secant Luminous panel is currently available in monochromatic color or white, and by 2020 operators will be able to add full color addressable displays through a software update.

NBAA-BACE attendees can see the Secant Luminous Panel at the company’s cabin experience demonstration (booth 228) this week.
