Safe Flight Introduces Aircraft Icing Detector
Safe Flight Instrument introduced its new Icing Conditions Detector (ICD) today at EBACE. The patented optical ICD provides an alert that icing conditions exist before ice can accrete on the aircraft. Composed of a single line-replaceable unit, the system is intended for operation in all modes of flight, according to Safe Flight. The system, currently under evaluation in a variety of airframe types, provides an instantaneous warning when icing conditions are present before ice accretion has an opportunity to reduce aircraft performance and controllability.
