Aviation’s first circadian rhythm-based cabin lighting technology
Bombardier has unveiled the Soleil lighting system, the industry’s most advanced cabin lighting technology, on the award-winning Global 7500 business jet.
Designed and developed exclusively for the Global 7500, the innovative Soleil lighting system is aviation’s first circadian rhythm-based cabin lighting technology fully integrated with the Flight Management System, and it introduces the revolutionary Dynamic Daylight Simulation feature, which can help combat jet lag.
Dynamic Daylight Simulation uses specific combinations of red and blue light wavelengths that studies have shown to help stimulate or suppress the production of melatonin - which assists in regulating the sleep-wake cycle and can help contribute to synchronizing passengers’ circadian rhythms to the time at their destination.
The Soleil lighting system is fully integrated into the Global 7500 aircraft’s nice Touch cabin management system, and can also be customized to a passenger’s preference for either extended sleep or productivity via the system’s unique circadian adjustment setting. The Soleil lighting system can also conveniently be programmed to schedule the optimal times for meal services, allowing the cabin crew to better prepare and plan more efficiently.
Incorporating twice the number of individual LEDs than other cabin lighting methods, the Soleil lighting system delivers the most vivid and high-definition color rendering index (CRI) of any lighting system available today. The system is ideally suited to the Global 7500 aircraft and its long-range mission profile.
