PROGRESS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF PRACTICAL REMOTE DETECTION OF ICING CONDITIONS 1. INTRODUCTION The NASA Icing Remote Sensing System (NIRSS) has been under definition and development at NASA Glenn Research Center since The goal of this development activity Additional ground-based, remotely-sensed. Icing Remote Sensing Fundamentals (Icing R-S ) Want measurement of icing hazard aloft Can measure remotely: – Liquid water content of the cloud – Size of the cloud droplets – Temperature No single remote sensing technology can do all this Need multi-sensor measurement system Key technologies include: – Radar – Microwave Radiometry.

Ground-based remote sensing uses a variety of geophysical survey techniques to "see" beneath the surface of the soil, providing a map of the underlying archaeological, alluvial and geological features. The main techniques used at Heslerton have been magnetometry and earth resistance, with limited ground penetrating radar.

principal factors related to flight in icing conditions and the location of additional information in related publications. As a result of these updates and consolidating of information, AC A, Pilot Guide: Flight in Icing Conditions, dated December 31, , and AC A, Effect of.

This study will focus on methods to utilize two ground-based remote sensing platforms with the purpose of providing accurate and timely warnings on - the presence of in-flight icing hazard. A remote-sensing system designed to detect icing conditions in the flight path could allow aircraft to avoid and exit hazardous conditions. Ground-based near airports or airborne, such systems would be most useful to low, slow-flying aircraft that frequently encounter icing, such as turboprops and helicopters.
