Aircraft icing continues to be a challenge for the aviation community. Icing is predominantly reported by pilots based on subjective visual observations of relatively small ice thicknesses at distances greater than such estimates can consistently be made. While some technologies exist to sense the presence of aircraft icing, there is a need to objectively sense the presence of ice, determine the rate of ice accumulation, and concurrently measure weather conditions to support, validate, and report the icing indication. AirDat LLC has developed an airborne atmospheric sensing device that includes a built-in ice detector which transmits icing information directly to the ground in real time. These data can be received directly by the aircraft operator or provided to any number of aviation entities to improve the safety of the National Air Space (NAS).
