Jamco has announced details of Project Blue Sky, a global, collaborative clean cabin initiative to develop and produce touchless, hygienic cabin interior products for the aerospace industry. The new initiative seeks to increase cabin cleanliness and to alleviate passenger stress during air travel, both critically important in the wake of the Covid-19 global health crisis.
The Project Blue Sky initiative includes the latest in hygienic and touchless air cabin technologies, including seats, cabin dividers, and lavatories, as well as improved disinfection technologies for use in locations throughout the cabin. The initiative is born out of Jamco’s commitment to help ease the transition to a “new normal” and a new era of cleanliness in the commercial aerospace industry.
The project incorporates the development of products such as the Clean Cabin Divider. A transparent seat divider affixed above the seat, the Divider acts as a barrier to limit the potential transmission of germs. Its design takes into consideration passenger visibility and security, a cost-effective header design and passenger comfort.
In the lavatory, touchless products such as the Hands-Free Toilet Seat/Lid, Hands-Free Waste Flap and Touchless Faucet all minimise contact in high-touch areas, reducing the possible spread of germs between passengers and crew, as well as reducing the need for disinfection.
Jamco is also working to revolutionize the process of aircraft disinfection through its UV disinfection concepts. The company is pursuing the development of UV disinfection technology; ultraviolet rays have been proven to destroy the DNA structure of viruses and bacteria, thus preventing the spread of diseases. Jamco’s UV disinfection concept includes installing new, human-safe UV technology in lavatories, galleys and seating areas to enable disinfection and germ elimination during flight.
A recent partnership between Jamco America and Object Theory created a new augmented reality (AR) training tool for efficient maintenance service. Jamco America’s vision is to ensure that the airlines’ operational efficiency is maximised. With the implementation of the HoloLens, trainee mechanics can work on their product hands-free, in real time, and without the need to refer to a separate manual. This system audibly communicates step-by-step instructions to the user as computer-generated images create a guiding overlay on the product. At the same time, the user has complete control over the pace of their work by selecting when they are ready to proceed to the next step.
