SWS’ Electrical System Support

TAP

SWS also has considerable knowledge and experience supporting electrical system suppliers and airframe manufacturers with approvals for their electrical and avionic systems. We have been involved in many programmes involving IFE, seating and electrical actuators, PCUs, cushion comfort systems [e.g. Lumbar, massage], reading and ambient ‘mood’ lighting. We are conversant with RTCA-DO178 and DO160 requirements as well as those of CS/FAR 25.1309, Boeing and Airbus which enables us to support both hardware and software qualification

SWS supports the approvals for TAP Portugal’s seat upgrades…

TAP Portugal

TAP Portugal had a clear need to upgrade its fleet of A340-312 aircraft. This involved the installation of a new IFE system in 2 seat variants:- the modification of the existing Business Class seats and the replacement of the Economy Class seats modified to take a new seat back monitor. Panasonic Avionics Corporation, as the OEM for the IFE system, selected SWS as a part 21J design organisation to approve design changes and repairs to the interiors of aircraft.

SWS were also responsible for the detailed design of the installation attachments to the seats, such as monitor mounts and shrouds, as well as the electronic units and harnesses under the seats.

Outcome...

SWS delivered its part of the project obtaining an EASA and FAA approval under the recent bilateral agreement.

“We have gained considerable expertise from the multiple programmes we have worked on in this area”


 

TESTIMONIALS

"SWS Certification proficient knowledge and responsiveness were instrumental success factors which enabled TAP to achieve a quite complex seat modification and IFE integration in a very aggressive lead-time, thus earning the right of being considered much more than a supplier, a partner."

- José de Almeida, A330 Fleet Manager & IFE Systems Manager – TAP M&E
