Project Description

D-ICE is an intelligent ice detection and mitigation solution for unmanned aircraft

Icing on exposed surfaces has serious consequences to UAS operations. Even minor icing may severely affect flight control and endanger critical missions. Today, the best practice for avoiding icing is to ground the aircraft.

While this reduces the risk of losing valuable equipment, the result is loss of surveillance/inspection capability, delayed missions and increased personnel costs. There are no efficient solutions available to counter icing on unmanned aircraft.

Increasing the operational window of UAS’.
Designed specifically for unmanned aircraft, D-ICE offers a light-weight and power-efficient solution to the icing problem. For UAS operators, D-ICE means significantly increased operational capability and reduced operational costs.

D-ICE is available both as a custom component in a UAS manufacturing process
and as a retrofit solution for existing unmanned aircraft.
