BAE Systems: Things Are Looking Up for Airline Passengers

Our IntelliCabin™ system made its U.S. debut this week at the Airline Passenger Experience (APEX) Expo — a trade show that brings together representatives from more than 120 airlines and hundreds of suppliers, all committed to improving the air travel experience for travelers around the world.

This cabin of the future integrates a variety of cabin functions to create a more premium experience for passengers and to benefit airline and OEM customers. These enhanced features include dynamic LED lighting, temperature control, seat control and power, and galley functions in one adaptive control panel or mobile device. IntelliCabin frees the crew to better serve their passengers and efficiently managing power throughout the cabin.

“Our meetings with potential customers have yielded overwhelmingly positive feedback about IntelliCabin,” said Faran Siddiqi, IntelliCabin business development lead at BAE Systems. “Its power management feature – with the ability to provide power to seats throughout the cabin – has been especially well received.”

Our Commercial Aircraft Solutions team from Endicott, N.Y., first launched IntelliCabin at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany earlier this year and then chose the APEX Expo for its North American launch, with high expectations for successful customer demos in the system’s simulator.

IntelliCabin is in development now, and its power features will be available in the fourth quarter of 2014. So be on the lookout for this adaptable, scalable, and flexible system onboard a future flight — after all, it is the cabin of the future.
