Research Headlines - Closer to perfection in aircraft ice protection (via Research & Innovation)

Up there where the big planes fly, it gets very cold indeed: outside temperatures of 50°C are nothing special. Droplets of water suspended in the air can freeze to aircraft instantly, accumulating into layers of ice. A number of systems are used to tackle this gelid build-up, which constitutes a safety hazard. EU-funded researchers are developing new solutions.
