Metis Design Licenses CNT Technology to UTC to Build New Aircraft De-Icing Products
United technologies (UTC) aerospace system is one of the largest suppliers of technologically advances aerospace and defense products. They are known to design, manufacture and service systems. They are an integrates solutions for commercial, regional, business and military aircraft, helicopter. They are capable of services that many of the aerospace building industries are not capable of. They have the best customer service and are ready to assist customers 24/7.
They also supplier to international space programs has recently announced their winning of the exclusive license that many companies are striving for. This special and exclusive license is from Metis design which is basically made to use carbon nanotube which is a heater based technology that is mainly made to be able to manufacture aircraft ice protection systems. This new agreement has brought them s much more opportunities.
They are going to combine electrothermal ice protection systems with CNT technology which is mainly to build a new lightweight system. This is really interesting and will help their business a lot. UTC vice-president of Aerospace Systems engineering and technology, sensors and integrated systems Dr Mauro Atalla said: "This technology strengthens UTC Aerospace Systems capability to deliver the most innovative solutions for aircraft ice protection systems. She also mentioned “CNT technology is ideally suited for our ice protection product line, and we have already seen positive customer feedback from testing conducted at our icing wind tunnel. And “Metis Design has developed this technology over several years and has demonstrated its feasibility in several projects.”
