Performance, comfort and connectivity

Skylounge Core seat

Light, silent and compact, electromechanical seat actuators from Safran Electronics & Defense are an advantageous replacement for hydraulic actuators, since they offer greater comfort, higher performance and improved connectivity for passengers and pilots alike.

Safran Electronics & Defense's product range, dubbed SeatNet, comprises electronic control units, linear and rotary actuators, passenger seat control units, wiring harnesses and lumbar massage systems. In service since 2007, these products are now installed on more than 2,680 airplanes operated by 77 airlines.  

Safran Electronics & Defense has developed a wide range of innovative actuation solutions that optimize weight, kinetics and intelligence, making them easy to adapt to all seat configurations and customer requirements, whether as original equipment (linefit) or as a retrofit. Products range from ultra-compact actuators to highly sophisticated models featuring advanced functions.

We invest heavily in R&D to design systems that constantly enhance efficiency, size and intelligence, thus ensuring that passengers enjoy safe and comfortable seats for an unforgettable flying experience.
