Rapid Response Volcanic Ash Detector for Aircraft

Description:

This invention is an integrated system for warning an aircraft, either fixed wing or rotor, of potentially hazardous concentrations of volcanic ash, or other large ambient aerosols, in its surrounding environment. This system is designed to function on-board the aircraft and warn the crew of increasing concentrations of volcanic ash so they can exit the encountered volcanic ash plume prior to the aircraft encountering the high concentrations of ash in the heart of the plume.
