Technologies Impacting the Future of Full Ice Protection System (FIPS)

Future Genic Reports has announced the addition of the “****** Full Ice Protection System (FIPS) Industry 2018 Market Research Report: Market Size, and Forecasts” report to their offering.

Full Ice Protection System are designed to keep atmospheric ice from accumulating on aircraft surfaces (particularly leading edges), such as wings, propellers, rotor blades, engine intakes, and environmental control intakes. If ice is allowed to build up to a significant thickness it can change the shape of airfoils and flight control surfaces, degrading the performance, control or handling characteristics of the aircraft. An ice protection system either prevents formation of ice, or enables the aircraft to shed the ice before it can grow to a dangerous thickness. Aircraft and engine ice protection systems are generally of two designs: either they remove ice after it has formed, or they prevent it from forming. The former type of system is referred to as a de-icing system and the latter as an anti-icing system.
