Embraer, Collins Explore More Efficient Ice Protection
Embraer and Collins are jointly developing a carbon nanotube electro thermal heating technology that they say is more sustainable and efficient.
Collins’ CNT heater and ice protection controller were installed on the vertical stabilizer of Embraer’s 300E prototype, and the system has completed more than 10 hours of ground and “dry air” flight tests. (Photo: Embraer)
