Spanish translation:Ventanas planas
Explanation:
I believe the context here makes it difficult to adopt a simplistic translation, but if it barks and has for legs ...
It seems like a description of new underwater technology. Most windows in submarines and planes are not flat or totally flat, but rounded or conic. The main reason is pressure. It´s more difficult to stand pressures on flat windows. Therefore the text is describing the extension of the design life -meaning untested in real-world applications- of window´s life cycle, being one cycle one immersion.

Explanation:
This seems a little odd, since windows on various types of craft are termed "portholes."

Should you perhaps ask your client to what type of window this refers? I suspect it's not one that you look through to see the pretty fish.
