Electrical Ice Protection

Providing safety critical control systems where size weight and power are limited, in challenging environments.

With over 15 years’ experience, Ultra is the market leader in developing innovative Electrical Ice Protection System solutions for the Aerospace industry.

Our systems are designed to operate in either an anti-icing or de-icing modes. We cater to a range of ice protection requirements; from simple, time/voltage, on-off control through to very complex multi-zone, closed loop feedback control.

To date, our Ice Protection Systems have been adopted in applications including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner Wing Leading Edge, the Lockheed Martin F35 Engine and Lift Fan Inlets and helicopter engine inlets.
