Title: RIDES: Raman Icing Detection System
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX13CL11P
Award Amount: $123,497.00
 

Abstract:

Michigan Aerospace Corporation proposes to develop an integrated LIDAR instrument capable of identifying icing conditions while also providing air data sensing capabilities. The resulting Raman Icing Detection System (RIDES) will be an integrated air data sensing and icing condition detection instrument, providing a backup to the Pitot tubes potentially affected by icing, thus providing redundancy for critical information. The proposed solution will operate without protrusions into the flow, behind a flush mounted window on the skin of the aircraft, mitigating the risk of ice build-up during operation. This project will utilize MAC's extensive heritage of rugged LIDAR system design and construction.
