White Plains, New York (Monday May 19, 2014) — Safe Flight Instrument Corporation of White Plains, NY announced today their new Icing Conditions Detector (ICD).
Ice accretion is a serious hazard to all aircraft. Even miniscule amounts of frost, snow, ice, or slush on the aerodynamic and/or control surfaces of the aircraft can cause significant loss in lift and flight control capability. Safe Flight’s patented optical ICD provides an alert that icing conditions exist before ice accretion has an opportunity to reduce vehicle performance and controllability.
The system, currently under evaluation by a variety of airframe types, provides an instantaneous warning when icing conditions are present before ice accretion has an opportunity to reduce vehicle performance and controllability. Comprised of a single line replaceable unit, the lightweight, low drag safety enhancing equipment is ideal for operations in all modes of flight.
