NASA has communicated a need to develop icing detection and minimization systems for unmanned platforms specifically pertaining to Suborbital Scientific Earth Exploration Missions, which involve various payloads, a range of altitudes and mission durations, and generally extreme operating environments. One particular initiative that would benefit directly from a structurally integrated icing detection and minimization system is the U.S. Global Change Research Program, which employs NASA aircraft to conduct high-accuracy climate research in regions extending to the Polar Regions. Multiple NASA centers are also actively engaged in UAV development and fielding. Direct Write technology and the proposed innovations for aircraft ice mitigation have applicability over a wide range of unmanned platforms for vehicle health management and sustainment. Deployable systems for multifunctional icing detection and minimization, particularly on control surfaces, are in high demand for commercial and military aviation platforms. The innovations proposed in the subject NASA Phase I proposal encompass multifunctional Direct Write sensors and heaters as well as distributed conductor networks for implementation onto control surfaces. MesoScribe has engaged multiple aerospace transition partners to provide guidance on potential vehicle platforms. In particular, both commercial and military aircraft have a need for upgraded de-icing systems, specifically employing active de-icing based on detection capabilities rather than preventative anti-icing approaches. Unmanned vehicle platforms involving high altitude, long endurance (HALE) flight, which is akin to the requirements specified for NASA UAV missions, also have a need for ice detection and minimization technologies. MesoScribe will work with OEM partners to identify transition opportunities and platform specific requirements to facilitate rapid technology fielding within the aerospace sector.
