JEDI ACE (Japanese-European De-Icing Aircraft Collaborative Exploration)
is an EU FP7 project that provides an innovative concept of an integrated ice protection system: an integrated approach, consisting of combined passive anti-icing coating, active de-icing devices and ice sensors. The system will be applicable to aircraft wings and will support an important technological milestone: the composite wing concept.
The Project: Bringing Together Specialists from Four Countries
The project is being funded by the European Commission and the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI). Fraunhofer IFAM is leading the scientific work and coordinating the project. Partners of the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM in the JEDI ACE project are:
