Battelle has transformed in-flight aircraft ice protection with a newly developed proprietary technology based on resistive heating coating. This innovative anti-icing and deicing solution’s small size, weight and power envelope uses a high-conductivity, carbon nanotube heating coating that conforms to the existing skin of the aircraft and utilizes intelligent sensors and controls to reduce ice accumulation without compromising flight performance.

  • Application options: Direct spray or laminate film options allow flexible designs for all types of aircraft
  • Surfaces: Suitable for control surfaces and engine inlets
  • Continuous protection: Key advantage of unlimited operating time over systems with finite power or fluid reserves
  • Control: Adapts to unforecast conditions and selective autonomous operation ensures safety of unmanned aircraft
  • New or retrofit design: Minimally invasive components make it suitable for new platform designs or retrofit of current models

With aircraft, weight and wing profile matter. HeatCoat’s significant size, weight and power advantages over alternatives means more mission payload, range and persistence.
