  1. Keeping ice off airplane wings.

    Article - En anglais

    Despite all the advances that have made air travel safer than ever, the accumulation of ice on airplane wings continues to be one of aviation's most insidious problems.

    Ice affects a plane's performance by hampering the wings'lift capability.

    As a result, airlines are increasingly relying on various devices including magnetostrictive, electromagnetic, and ultrasonic sensors - to alert them to the presence of ice and the need to implement deicing measures.

    These sophisticated devices are used in helping to increase the safety of air travel by preventing ice buildup on aircraft.
