WOODBURY, N.Y., June 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aerospace Technologies Group, Inc. (ATG) and Research Frontiers (Nasdaq:REFR) licensee InspecTech Aero Service (IAS) have announced the Tranquility Shade System, ATG's standalone EDW featuring Research Frontiers' SPD-Smart light-control technology. An SPD-Smart EDW is a dimmable window capable of instantly switching from clear to dark, and any intermediate degree of tint desired.
ATG expanded its product line to include Tranquility due to recent performance improvements in InspecTech's EDW. The new generation provides exceptional cabin darkening without a secondary pleated shade, with full optical clarity when clear. ATG now offers customers a full range of EDW options: Tranquility, with a clean, sleek look and Panacea, which incorporates an elegant fabric look into a combination electromechanical and EDW shade.
In an ATG press release, ATG said:
"Aesthetically pleasing, Tranquility's clean design and customizable options offer the ability to create the perfect complement to the aircraft interior. Tranquility allows virtually instant transition to any level of tint from clear to very dark, thereby eliminating glare while still being able to enjoy the view of the world outside. Tranquility also features automated light-control; passengers set the desired level of light and the system maintains it by automatically adjusting to changing outside light conditions."
