December 6, 2007 - SAE International aerospace standard AS5681: Minimum Operational Performance Specification for Remote On-Ground Ice Detection Systems specifies the minimum performance requirements of Remote On-Ground Ice Detection Systems (ROGIDS). It also provides the framework for manufacturers to comply with requirements and obtain pertinent regulatory approvals. According to Frank Eyre, it can help lead to improvements in safety and can also reduce unnecessary turn backs to deicing pads.

WARRENDALE, Pa., Nov. 12, 2007 - Ice on the wings can spell disaster for an aircraft - no matter how thin that ice layer may be.

Detecting that ice before the plane ever leaves the ground is the focus of a new SAE International aerospace standard - AS5681: Minimum Operational Performance Specification for Remote On-Ground Ice Detection Systems.

AS5681 specifies the minimum performance requirements of Remote On-Ground Ice Detection Systems (ROGIDS). Such systems have been around since the early 1990's, but there were no set of requirements to accurately measure that the ability to detect ice by ROGIDS was equivalent or superior to human visual or tactile capability.

AS5681 addresses those issues and provides the framework for manufacturers to comply with requirements and obtain pertinent regulatory approvals.

"The development of this standard involved some very thorough testing by many experienced and knowledgeable industry people," Frank Eyre, AS5681 sponsor, said. "The testing showed that, under the specification outlined in this document, sensors could detect ice better than people. As a result, we believe this standard can help lead to improvements in safety and it can also reduce unnecessary turn backs to de-icing pads."

AS5681 was written and created by SAE International's G-12 Ice Detection Committee.
