This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS)/Minimum Operational Performance Specification (MOPS) specifies the minimum performance requirements of Remote On-Ground Ice Detection Systems (ROGIDS). These systems are ground-based. They provide information that indicates whether frozen contamination is present on aircraft surfaces.
AS5116, Minimum Operational Performance Specification for Ground Ice Detection Systems, has been cancelled. After review it was determined that the scope for AS5116 was too broad and there is a need for separate standards for Remote On-Ground, Remote On-Board, and In-Situ Sensors. This Minimum Operational Performance Specification, AS5681, provides a standard for Remote On Ground Ice Detection Systems (ROGIDS).
