Ironically, the most advanced RPV with the most sophisticated
cloud penetrating surveillance gear yet invented can be reduced
to flying only on a clear blue day.
All it takes is a few millimeters of ice.
Far from using weather as a tactical advantage, most RPVs are
forced to retreat in the face of ice. The CAV Ice protection
Consulting Engineers will work with you to ensure that your new
and existing designs complete their missions in virtually any
weather, as we have done for over 6,000 manned and unmanned
aircraft around the world.
The experts at CAV Ice Protection have proven themselves in
all flight regimes. In all climates and latitudes. And in all
fields of operation: military, governmental and civilian. We
honed our ice protection capabilities for MALE and HALE RPVs on
the Predator and Heron.
The secret of our success is hardly classified. The CAV Ice
protection Consulting Engineers integrate seamlessly with your
design and development teams to create solutions that maximize
aerodynamics and efficiency, while minimizing weight and cost.
We bring to bear thousands of hours of experience in the
exacting atmosphere of the lab and tens of thousands more in the
unforgiving crucible of the real world. It is our ability to
combine theoretical development with practical validation that
gives us the knowledge that ice protection is a multidisciplined
process that requires expertise in many facets of aircraft
operations, performance, capabilities and integration.
We know ice in all its forms. We know when to apply chemical,
mechanical and heat solutions to the icing problems unique to
your design and your mission.

unmanned aircraft for our capabilities in the disciplines of:
