Description: Report discussing a research program to investigate ice prevention and elimination on airships in order to develop suitable airship ice-prevention equipment. A Naval K-type airship was equipped with photographic and meteorological tools in order to record ice formation and the propellers were outfitted with electrically heated blade shoes. Testing discovered that an airship can be flown successfully in wet snow and freezing rain with only the propellers and induction systems protected from the weather.
