A Structurally-Integrated Ice Detection and De-Icing System for Unmanned Air Vehicles, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

A Structurally-Integrated Ice Detection and De-Icing System for Unmanned Air Vehicles, Phase I
Unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) are becoming more prevalent for Suborbital Scientific Earth Exploration, which often involves high altitude, long endurance flight missions. Extreme environmental conditions, especially involving sub-freezing temperatures (eg, polar missions in support of the US Global Change Research Program), can lead to the accretion of ice on control surfaces and jeopardize both the vehicle health and mission success.
