The EU-funded project SENS4ICE (2019-2023, Grant Agreement No 824253) final results for novel Supercooled Large Droplet (SLD) icing detection technologies are documented in four final public reports.
The evaluation of innovative direct, indirect and remote SLD detection technologies is based on icing wind tunnel and flight campaign results. Core of the SENS4ICE project was a hybrid ice detection solution to tackle the challenging task of SLD detection. It combines one or several direct ice detection technologies with the indirect approach to generate quick and robust warnings and continuous ice accretion and flight performance monitoring, also supporting efficiency optimization of ice protection systems.
