CAV Ice Protection (booth 3962) has launched an engineering consulting organization specifically dedicated to providing ice protection expertise and counsel to manufacturers and operators of remotely piloted vehicles. The CAV Ice protection Consulting Engineers organization, called CAVICE, will tap into the company's ice protection expertise with both medium altitude and high altitude long endurance unmanned systems and "thousands of manned aircraft", says Kevin Hawley, CAV Ice Protection vice president of business development.

"Too many times, unmanned vehicles have to forgo a crucial mission when they have to fly through icing conditions to complete their tasks," says Hawley.

"Technological advancements mean flight into known icing conditions is permissible for manned missions and available to greatly expand the flight envelope and operational effectiveness of RPVs in weather conditions where ice is present," he adds.
