Safran has won three Crystal Cabin Awards: "Cabin Systems" category for SOPHY, the smart trolley solution, "Passenger Comfort Hardware" category for its Modulair innovation, a concept offering an enhanced comfort for seats and "IFEC" (IFE & Connectivity) category for its RAVE Bluetooth.

SOPHY is a wafer-thin, smart monitoring device for catering trolleys. It provides airlines with a helicopter view of catering operations, unlocking valuable insights on processes and indicators of a trolley's journey. The SOPHY hardware easily integrates within new and existing airline trolleys to collect, share and communicate real-time data with other SOPHY-activated equipment via a "mesh network".

SOPHY

In the wake of COVID-19, airlines continue to examine how they can improve operations while decreasing costs. SOPHY's innovative solution offers opportunities to save on catering costs, reduce inefficiencies and maximize operations. Additionally, Safran Cabin created a cost-effective solution that minimizes SOPHY implementation efforts for airlines.

The Modulair, a concept created in cooperation with ENCSI (L'École nationale supérieure de création industrielle, a school based in Paris – France), offers an enhanced comfort experience for Economy and Premium Economy class seats. It is built on a modular architecture that allows to integrate a wide range of comfort features. This innovation integrates solutions that target privacy, rest, space, cleanliness and entertainment. Each feature by its own has its own technological breakthrough.

RAVE

RAVE Bluetooth, part of Safran's inflight entertainment suite of RAVE products, solves the cabin density and signal overlap issues making Bluetooth audio available for all passengers. The technology controls power, antenna direction, and protocol while paired with the RAVE Bluetooth Audio Jack and provides audio connection for all passengers without impact to Wi-Fi coverage.

The Crystal Cabin Award is a leading international award for excellence in the field of aircraft interior innovation. This year, more than 100 concepts from all over the world were presented across eight categories.
