Aero-TV: Kestrel vs. Icing - Cox and Company Brings EMEDS To The Fight

Alan Klapmeier's Icing Solution For The Kestrel Relies On Exciting Technology

One of the more intriguing announcement to come out of NBAA2012 was the Kestrel Aircraft Company revelation that Cox and Company, of Plainsville, NY, had been chosen to supply the Ice Protection System for the Kestrel aircraft currently under development.

Kestrel Aircraft CEO and President, Alan Klapmeier, stated, “We are very pleased to add Cox, as one of Kestrel’s development partners. We believe the Electro-Mechanical Expulsion Deicing System (EMEDS) is a perfect fit for our aircraft’s mission profile. EMEDS allows effective ice removal while retaining a laminar flow wing. This is critical factor for achieving high speed and reducing drag and fuel consumption. Also EMEDS has lower lifetime costs than other deicing systems. We are committed to our focus on operating cost for our future customers.”

EMEDS is, reportedly, a sophisticated Low Power Ice Protection system. EMEDS has already been adapted to business, commercial and military/government aircraft and has been in service for more than ten years on hundreds of aircraft. EMEDS components are mounted inside the leading edge and are therefore not subjected to atmospheric or environmental hazards. There is nothing to service or replace. Cox's EMEDS is also the first new ice protection technology certified for flight into known icing conditions by the FAA in over 40 years. The installation provides a smooth leading edge surface that produces lower aerodynamic drag and reduced fuel consumption.
