Title: METHOD FOR ANALYSING AN AIRCRAFT, CORRESPONDING SYSTEM OF ANALYSIS OF AN AIRCRAFT, AND DE-ICING AND/OR ANTI- ICING SYSTEM
Abstract:
Described herein is a method for analysing an aircraft (5) that is in an inspection area by means of at least one drone (1) comprising at least one sensor designed to analyse the surface of the aircraft (5). The method comprises the steps of: - bringing the at least one drone (1) into the target area; - making a first scan of at least one part of the aircraft ( 5 ); - processing the first scan to determine automatically an inspection path (12) for the at least one drone ( 1 ); and - making via the at least one drone (1) a second scan following the inspection path (12) and simultaneously analysing the surface of the aircraft (5) via the at least one sensor (18).
