A passive microwave icing avoidance system (MIAS) senses atmospheric conditions that lead to aircraft icing when the aircraft is flying at an altitude above the earth's surface. The MIAS includes a 37 GHz receiver and an 89 GHz receiver coupled to an antenna for sensing two microwave frequencies at different angles creating six passive microwave beams. The two receivers output data to a processor that processes the data to determine the amount of cloud liquid water and generates signals to an indicator/display to instruct the pilot of an aircraft to dive...
1. A passive microwave icing avoidance system for aircraft guidance, comprising:a first receiver responsive to received air temperature and cloud hydrometeors at a first microwave frequency having emission characteristics from along an upward beam path, a downward beam path and a forward beam path, each beam path having an angle with reference to the flight path of an aircraft, the hydrometeors likely to cause icing conditions, said first receiver having output data related to the air temperature and cloud hydrometeors for each of the beam paths; a secon...
