Traditional aircraft cabin lighting systems use cold cathode lighting
elements, similar to those found in neon signs. These systems suffer
from a variety of problems including poor reliability, durability, and
potential safety hazards. The fragile tubes are easily broken.
Additionally, the high voltage inverters and the electrical discharge
within the cold cathode tubes generate significant electrical noise
which may interfere with other aircraft systems. Heads Up Technologies
provides Upwash/Downwash lighting elements based on rugged LED
technology. These light-weight, low-voltage units deliver true color
over a complete range of dimming. Our proven technology has been chosen
by major airframe manufacturers to supply production contracts.
