Advanced Sensors for Helicopter Icing Research
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
A measurement system for measuring the icing characteristics of mixed phased clouds from helicopters is being proposed. The Advanced Sensors for Helicopter Icing Research (ASHIR) is a hybrid system that integrates optical and thermal sensors with sophisticated signal processing algorithms in a configuration suitable for mounting on the aircraft fuselage and light enough to be boom mounted. Regardless of the mounting location the system is designed for immunity to high off-boresight angles of cloud particles arriving at the sample volume.
