THE SENS4ICE EU PROJECT SENSORS AND CERTIFIABLE HYBRID ARCHITECTURES FOR SAFER AVIATION IN ICING ENVIRONMENT PROJECT OVERVIEW AND INITIAL RESULTS

C.W. Schwarz, DLR, Germany

The EU project SENS4ICE (GA no 824253) addresses reliable detection and discrimination of supercooled large droplets (SLD) icing conditions: technology development, icing wind tunnel and flight test. A hybrid approach combines direct sensing (atmospheric conditions / ice accretion) with indirect techniques based on changing aircraft characteristics.
