■ Effective Ice Removal & Prevention
Ice residuals < 0.5mm
■ Low Electric Power Consumption
1%-5% of AV nominal cruise Power
■ Light Weight
2%-4% of AV max T/O weight
■ Simple Installation & low cost Maintenance
TRL (DoD) 6-7
■ Thermal Mat
■ Surface Coating
■ Control Unit
■ Battery Backup (optional)
■ Actuators are easily assembled and disassembled from wing side.
■ System assembly has no impact on wing aerodynamics.
■ Optimal for long endurance UAVs having laminar flow wings.
