- Featuring some of the project activities performed in 2021 and 2022
Highlighted activities include Icing Wind Tunnel tests at different Icing Wind Tunnel locations with several ice detection technologies under development and reference instrumentation. Furthermore, aircraft ground test was carried out in order to prepare for the SENS4ICE flight tests.
Watch the video highlighting some of the project activities performed in 2021 and 2022.
- Ground tests performed in SENS4ICE
In April 2022, the SENS4ICE partner ATR performed a three-day ground test on the SAFIRE ATR-42 aircraft.
The objective was to validate the acquisition of the Flight Data Acquisition Unit (FDAU) parameters by a dedicated acquisition system (ACRA); to check avionics non-interference by the FDAU/ACRA installation; to evaluate latency time induced by the FDAU/ACRA system.
Watch the video highlighting the key elements of the ground test.
