Post Time:Sep 09,2009Classify:Company NewsView:255

September 7, 2009. Research Frontiers Inc. licensee GKN Aerospace announced on September 4, 2009 that it has been awarded a $425,000 development contract from the U.S. Department of Defense for SPD-SmartTM instantly dimmable bullet resistant windows.
 
GKN also announced that it will exhibit armored SPD-SmartGlassTM in London from September 8-11 at the Defence Systems and Equipment International (DSEI) trade show, and at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting & Exposition in Washington, D.C. from October 5-7.
 
SPD-Smart products use patented SPD film technology developed and licensed by Research Frontiers. With the touch of a button or turn of a dial, users can instantly and precisely adjust the tint of windows, skylights, sunroofs and other products. Automated adjustment of SPD-Smart products also is available using sensors or timing devices. SPD films can be combined with other glazing materials, such as materials used in armored glass, to meet a wide range of end-product requirements across many applications.
 
Joseph M. Harary, President and CEO of Research Frontiers, noted: "With the recently demonstrated efficient energy savings that can result from use of SPD-Smart technology in the windows for homes, offices, boats, aircrafts and automobiles for the civilian market, today's announcement by our licensee GKN also highlights their active involvement to bring these and other benefits such as increased security to the military and government markets, as well as to the high-end civilian security market. I congratulate the SPD team at GKN for advancing their program to the point where it has now won a major award from the U.S. Department of Defense. GKN is a world leader in armored glass in both the military and civilian sectors, and this contract award supports GKN's efforts to bring SPD technology to these vital and growing markets."
