These innovative solutions include Spectrum Networks’ Laser based LiFi and Far-UVC technologies.

LiFi, more formally known as light fidelity, is the wireless transmission of data over both visible and invisible light waves offering significant security, bandwidth, and speed advantages over Wi-Fi. Both Duncan Aviation and Spectrum Networks view the incorporation of laser light as the critical step-change to truly “flood” a cabin with multi-Gigabit per second (Gbps) throughput rates, far more supportive of high-resolution video streaming and the proliferation of smart-cabin technologies. Spectrum Networks is also developing a FAR-UVC sanitation capability which can be standalone or incorporated in the same LiFi enabled light fixture. 222nm FAR-UVC is a recent technology development which is both safe for humans and cabin interior soft goods thereby allowing for the continuous sanitation of occupied spaces and surfaces.

The collaborative efforts thus far have included technical production details, installation considerations and design standards, certification planning, identification of launch customers, and cost structure. Duncan Aviation will further support Spectrum Networks with initial aircraft certification including Supplemental Type Certificates, installation, and other product support activities where mutually beneficial for both companies.

Market availability for both the LiFi and FAR UV technologies is anticipated by the third quarter of this year.
