CAV engineers to present at SAE International Conference on Icing of Aircraft, Engines, and Structures 2023

15th June 2023

The SAE International Conference on Icing of Aircraft, Engines, and Structures takes place every four years and is the foremost conference for icing knowledge.

Taking place in Vienna on the June 20 – 22, the event brings together icing professionals focused on aircraft or engine architecture and design, flight operations, research & innovation, ground and flight tests, icing certification, and ground operations.

The programme boasts technical presentations on range of key topics and interactive panel discussions from industry leaders and innovators from across the aviation community.

R Brock Harden, Senior Engineer – Design at CAV Systems will be a speaker in the Aircraft & Engine Inflight Icing and Advanced Air Mobility (AAM): Ice Protection Systems session on Tuesday 21 June.

His comprehensive presentation discusses the importance of ice protection for small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) and includes details of a new pneumatic-fluid ice protection system.

Koji Shimoi, Specialist Engineer – Design with CAV Systems will also be speaking at the event. Focusing on nacelle anti ice protection systems, Koji will examine the disadvantages of bleed air anti-ice systems and present a low-energy ice protection solution for nacelles which can improve both engine and IPS performance.

Alex Baty, VP Engineering at CAV Systems said: “Providing access to a wealth of technical knowledge and research on icing, including icing models, ice formation, and ice prevention methods, the SAE International Conference on Icing of Aircraft, Engines and Structures conference is such an important date in the industry calendar and we delighted to once again be participating.”

Abstracts of Brock and Koji’s presentations are available to download from the research presentations section of of website, and can be downloaded here. Full copies of their presentations will be published in our Document Library on Wednesday, 22 June 2023.
