The air vehicle manufacturers are all strongly involved in the development of new breakthrough configurations to meet rapid world traffic growth, reduce environmental footprint, improve operational efficiency and to face increasing industry competition.

By improving the understanding and modelling of icing conditions and providing numerical tools for the design and certification, ICE GENESIS will permit weather hazards to be more precisely evaluated and properly mitigated as per the EASP (European Aviation Safety Programme).

A consistent set of validated capabilities will be produced, covering all types of icing conditions and air vehicles. This will enable design of products that meet the safety objectives in all icing conditions along with the targeted impacts of reducing cost for certification, maintenance and power consumption.

ICE GENESIS will aim to cover the following areas:

  • Larger exploration of design and de-risking against late redesign 
  • Maintaining competitiveness for European engine manufacturers
  • Increasing testing capabilities within Europe
  • Contributing to standardization
  • Increase scientific excellence and research collaboration with Canada and Japan
  • European leadership on icing tools
  • Cross-fertilisation to other sectors
