Ice protection of Prepreg Carbon Fibre Aircraft Blackwing

Reference number
Coordinator BLACKWING SWEDEN AB - FLIGHT & SAFETY DESIGN SWEDEN AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 495 000
Project duration May 2016 - June 2017
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The aim for this first phase of the program was to adapted the EIDS technology to the Blackwing main wing and perform test on a 1,5-meter-long wing section.

Expected results and effects

The test made indicated some adjustments to the expected theoretical assumptions. The tested configuration indicates we can achieve an efficient system fulfilling SLD requirements.

Planned approach and implementation

The project was executed as a standard adaptation project with minimum influence on the rest of the aircraft structure and to achieve SLD ice removal capability wit a limited weight and power penalty.
