Paper Abstract

Solid state lighting (SSL) has made substantial inroads into the aviation lighting market in recent years. In many aircraft applications, the unique characteristics of this technology make it superior to the light sources presently employed. However, the novelty of this technology also brings new challenges to successful implementation within rigorous aerospace environs. This paper provides an overview of how the advent of solid state lighting has benefited the aerospace lighting industry, examines some of the current applications and looks forward to future uses of SSL in the aviation market. The discussion will include an examination of aerospace requirements and how SSL technology meets those requirements. The authors will address some of the challenges presented by solid state light relative to the aerospace industry and explore how these issues can be overcome.
