One of the main issues concerning flight safety is ice formation. The formation of ice can take place anywhere on an aircraft surface including engines and air induction systems during snow, freezing rain, hail, super cooled fog, or frost. The formation of ice can occur in many ways such as rime ice, glaze ice, runback ice, and mixed ice. The impact of icing on the aircraft results in loss of aerodynamic efficiency, engine power, control surface efficiency, engine failure and increase in fuel consumption. This work presents the detection and monitoring of ice formation using fiber-optic sensing techniques. © 2019 IEEE.
