Embraer and Collins Aerospace are collaborating on the development and testing of a new carbon nanotube electro thermal heating technology (CNT) for ice protection systems that seeks to result in more efficient and sustainable aircraft. The project recently achieved a major milestone by initiating a flight test campaign at Embraer’s Gavião Peixoto unit in Brazil. The new CNT ice protection system solution was successfully installed on the vertical stabilizer and flight tested in Embraer’s fully functional Phenom 300E prototype. Collins’ CNT heater and ice protection controller were integrated into the prototype aircraft before executing over 10 hours of ground and
