The SENS4ICE consortium is glad to welcome the National Research Council Canada (NRC) on board of the project! Discussions to involve NRC started in 2019 and were propelled by a visit of NRC representatives at the site of the SENS4ICE coordinator DLR in Braunschweig, Germany.
NRC partner integration in the SENS4ICE project is applicable as of the 1st of January 2021.
This is a great opportunity for the SENS4ICE project: NRC will provide two weeks of testing time in its Altitude icing wind tunnel research facility (AIWT) early 2021 for sensors developed by SENS4ICE partners, especially in Appendix C and O conditions.
With NRC integration, the number of IWT testing facilities available within SENS4ICE increases up to 5, including the Collins Aerospace Icing Wind Tunnel (USA), the Technical University of Braunschweig Icing Wind Tunnel (Germany), and the two TsAGI facilities, the Climatic-type Icing Wind Tunnel AHT SD and the Year-round Icing Wind Tunnel (Russia).
SENS4ICE is looking forward to the results of all IWT test campaigns which will be key for the sensor development and fulfilment of the project objectives.
