German Aerospace Center (DLR)
DLR's aircraft icing know-how and experience comprises measurement of atmospheric icing conditions, detection of ice accretion on the airframe, modelling and evaluating icing effects on aerodynamic properties and flight performance.
Based on its profound expertise in system identification DLR developed a novel robust ice detection methodology for the early detection of icing related flight performance degradation.
Carsten Schwarz is leading the flight mechanics group at the DLR Institute of Flight Systems, Department of Flight Dynamics and Simulation.
He was involved in numerous DLR-internal, German, European (including EC FP6, FP7, SESAR and SESAR 2020) and international projects, including project management activities. He supported rulemaking activities (wake turbulence re-categorisation) and international standardisation.
