Abstract
The paper consists of three parts. Part I provides an overview of the Canadian federal government's (i.e. Department of National Defence (DND), National Research Council (NRC) Canada, Transport Canada, Environment Canada, National Search and Rescue Secretariat, Industry Canada, and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada) program in airdcraft icing Research and Development (R&D), carried out under the auspices of the interdepartmental Aircraft Icing Research and Development Review Committee (AIRDRC) and other interdepartmental and departmental program initiatives at the national and international levels. Part II provides a discussion of the Canadian Aircraft Icing R&D Program in terms of: a. characterization of the enviornment; b. meteorological forecasting; c. the operational need for ice detection/protection and regulatory requirements, particularly for military Search and Rescue (SAR) and Maritime helicopters; d. the process for certification/qualification; e. aircraft in-flight icing R&D; f. aircraft ground de-icing/anti-icing R&D; g. modelling of ice accretion; h. principal Canadian facilities used for aircraft icing research; and i. Canadian centres of expertise. Part III provides recommendations on the way ahead for aircraft icing R&D in Canada.
