Increase the flight safety
in icing conditions
and especially for the SLD
Mature individual direct and indirect detection technologies to detect Appendix O conditions or ice accretion due to encountering Appendix O conditions and improve Appendix C sensor reliability.
Develop a hybrid ice detection system able to reliably detect all liquid water icing conditions and reliably discriminate icing conditions corresponding to Appendix C and O.
Develop methods for detection and/or nowcasting based on airborne weather radar and/or satellite to increase pilot awareness of remote icing threats
Develop a certifiable detection system architecture suited for use as an automatic primary ice detection system (i.e. with no pilot action required).
Contribute to increasing the knowledge base
on the formation and occurrence
of App. O conditions
Provide and analyse data in Appendix O and in conditions close to Appendix O through testing facilities and the flight demonstration of the hybrid system and the reference sensors.
