SiT (Seat integrated Technology) covers for the same seat in both the actuation and the In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) systems.
The seat actuation system was developed for ZODIAC SEATS FRANCE seats and has already met with some success at All Nippon Airways, launch customer, for the Business Class seats for B777, B767 and B787. The seat actuation system was developed inside Zodiac group to help integrating equipments from various suppliers. The main point of the SIT Comfort is the possibility to change key suppliers of the actuation system (actuators) without re-designing the actuation system.

A key element of the IFE design is to put all the available content into every seat, storing it at the passenger's fingertips in the smart display unit (SDU).
The rest of SiT is lightness and simplicity itself: a small (1 kg) SiT Interface Box (SIB) to manage the interfaces with the aircraft, including orders sent from the cockpit and a gigabit-rated optical Ethernet network for the delivery every few weeks of the new content loads to the SDUs. A power box for every four seats (pax) is the latest equipment of the basic architecture comprising only 3 LRU. A Passenger Control Unit and a Crew Control Panel are available as an option to increase comfort and functionalities.
Such a simplified architecture achieves significant reductions in terms of weight (-40%) and cost of ownership as well as increased reliability thanks to the availability of all contents (movies, audio, games, text...) in each SDU. The solution is also particularly well suited for retrofit projects with minimal impact on the cabin to implement the system.
