Keywords:research and development  in-flight entertainment and communications 

World's largest aerospace company Boeing and Samsung Electronics have agreed to conduct joint research and development on in-flight entertainment and communications systems.

Under an MoU signed by both parties, Boeing and Samsung will initially start the development of advanced display and wireless networking technologies that offer more capabilities for passenger entertainment and ground-to-air communications, but are lighter and require less power.

Additionally, the companies will explore opportunities to collaborate on projects involving productivity and enterprise mobility using Samsung's current and future devices and solutions in hand-held mobile devices and other IT products.

"Onboard communications and networking are key elements to the passenger in-flight experience, and connecting the airplane with ground crews during flight is vital to airline operational efficiency," said Larry Schneider, Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice president of product development. "The collaboration between Boeing and Samsung Electronics will explore the use of innovative technologies to advance the science in these areas."
