Abstract
A SIX MONTH PROGRAM TO DEVELOP A RUGGED NEW DEVICE FOR MONITORING THE ONSET OF ICE FORMATION ON SURFACES OF TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES, ROADS, BRIDGES AND AIRCRAFTS, WILL BE DEVELOPED AND A PROTOTYPE WILL BE LABORATORY TESTED. THE NOVEL GAGE AND ELECTRONIC SYSTEM IS PARTLY BASED ON THE TECHNOLOGY APPLIED TO MEASURE CONDUCTIVITY OF SOLUTIONS. BASED ON EXISTING TECHNOLOGY, AND ALREADY TESTED UNDER HIGH VELOCITY FLOW CONDITIONS, THE SYSTEM HAS EXCELLENT PROBABILITY OF SUCCESS IN THIS NEW APPLICATION. IT SHOULD ALSO BE USABLE IN OTHER ICING MEASUREMENT APPLICATIONS SUCH AS ON MARINE AND TRANSMISSION STRUCTURES.
