Regulation FD Disclosure, Financial Statements and Exhibits

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

On September 26, 2013 Vision Systems, a licensee of Research Frontiers Inc. (Nasdaq: REFR), announced that it will offer an SPD-Smart dimmable window ("Energia") that can operate without using the aircraft's electrical system. Energia integrates an optically clear layer that is capable of producing its own energy from the sun or artificial light sources.

SPD-Smart dimmable windows are increasingly in demand by aerospace OEMs, airlines, operators and aircraft owners. Now, the many practical, technical, and financial benefits of solar power can be added to the instant switching speed, wide range of light transmission, and relief from light, glare and heat already provided by SPD-Smart windows.

Energia facilitates the process of installing dimmable windows on new production and aftermarket aircraft - Energia requires no modifications to the aircraft's existing electrical system, because it is completely independent from the cabin's wiring.

Vision Systems' SPD-Smart electronically dimmable windows offer instant and precise light-control at all levels to provide a solar protection solution that enhances comfort and improves passengers' experience on aircraft.

Vision Systems announced their partnership with Sunpartner Technologies, the inventor and manufacturer of the transparent photovoltaic panel, and Energia was developed under license from Research Frontiers, the inventor of SPD-Smart light-control technology, and as a collaboration between these companies.

Vision Systems has filed for patent protection on this innovation in the aircraft industry.

Vision Systems will unveil Energia at their booth (C9522) at the 2013 NBAA, to be held October 22-24 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Joseph M. Harary, President and CEO of Research Frontiers, noted: "We have publicly discussed using photovoltaics with our smart windows to make the already energy-friendly SPD-SmartGlass even more environmentally friendly, and easier to install. This is a remarkable achievement by Vision Systems and Sunpartner Technologies. The extremely low power consumption of SPD-SmartGlass technology, combined with the benefits of solar power, is a formidable combination. The aerospace industry will welcome this news and the additional benefits that the combination of SPD-Smart light control technology and photovoltaics provides, and I believe it also provides an early indicator of where the SPD-SmartGlass industry may be headed across all applications for our technology, not only in the aircraft industry, but in the automotive, architecture and marine industries as well."
