The ICE GENESIS project is being carried out by a consortium (led by AIRBUS OPERATION SAS) made up of 30 EU and non-EU partners from 9 countries (France, Austria, Italy, UK, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada and Japan).

Each ICE GENESIS partner offers the multi-disciplinary expertise which is required in order to impact the aeronautical sector and to provide the expertise needed to meet the expectations from the participants, the industry and the European Commission.


Bombardier is the world’s leading manufacturer of both planes and trains, and is a leader in the design and manufacture of innovative aviation products and services for the business and commercial aircraft markets. Headquartered in Montréal, Canada, Bombardier employs more than 69,500 people worldwide as of December 2017. Bombardier’s revenues amounted to $16.2 billion for FY2017. Bombardier is divided into 5 units: Bombardier Transportation, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft, Bombardier Business Aircraft, Bombardier Aerostructures and Engineering Services, and Product Development Engineering (aerospace)
The Product Development Engineering, aerospace unit will be participating in the ICE-GENESIS project for Bombardier, through its Advanced Aerodynamics Department, and with administrative support for the Strategic Technology Office.

Role in the project

In WP9, BOMB will perform validation on 3D multi-step icing calculations, using the proprietary 3D RANS software Dragon which is bases on mesh movement techniques.
In WP11, BOMB will contribute to the selection of the test cases from WP8, run the selected test cases with their own icing tools and cross-check the results with the other partners. They will participate to the identification of limitations and best practices.
