Press releases out of EBACE 2013 say that Eurocopter will use electrochromatic windows on the VIP model. But they were showing Vision spd windows. They will only make 5 per year. But Eurocopter is owned by Airbus,so this is an important win for spd
Fee income is up several hundred thousand per quarter plus there is $797,000 in deferred royalties. I am not sure how much of the current fee income , if any, may derive from the deterred royalties. Revenue is from "several" automotive licensees. So the fee income is growing , although not yet exploding. Expenses continue to increase though, especially in stock options, which is bothersome. Nevertheless, I believe the future is bright if the S class uses Magic Sky Control. The wild card is Vision Systems-Vaupell in aircraft windows, if they land a major OEM
ALI filed a confidential treatment order with the SEC. Now they claim deferred payment on submarine contracts. My bet is that they have an offer to purchase the submarine cable division but only if the buyer gets the new contract revenue
INTERIORS: Airbus may offer dimmable windows on later A350s

Airbus may eventually offer electrochromic dimable windows on its in-development A350 widebody but only when the technology is "sufficiently mature" to block out 100% of the light entering the cabin.
Zuzana Hrnkova, head of interiors marketing at Airbus, admits it had trialled the technology with airline customers but found there was "no market" for the windows at present.
Boeing has introduced the electrochromic glass, supplied by Gentex, on its new 787 but airlines have complained the technology does not allow the glass to become dark enough, with some Japanese carriers even issuing passengers with stick-on window blinds.
Hrnkova says Airbus worked with Gentex to produce a cabin mock-up to test with its customers. "They told us that it did not provide 100% darkness. Even if it achieves 99% darkness there is still a lot of light penetrating the cabin and that is a no-go for them, especially on long-haul flights," she says.
Although window blinds will be standard on the A350, Airbus has retained the space to integrate the electrochromic windows at a later date, says Hrnkova, once the technology has matured.
Wrong. DYAI is not a high revenue company and another company may pay much more to an IP lawyer. Or, there could be internal friction in the workplace. Lots of reasons for quitting a job that do not indicate that a company is failing.
