Wouldn't a warning help?

Apart from R&D work about how to prevent UAS condition, this seems to call for a better training of pilots in unusual situations.
As someone with no aviation experience, can I ask how much a timely warning of [the likelihood of] UAS would have helped the pilots?

If it would have helped, perhaps more attention should be given to monitoring systems.

If cars can warn of hazardous road-temperatures, might not planes try to warn of ice-crystals.

Regards, Peter

PS The more I think about a "flight engineer's console", the more it seems to complement the strengths of existing FBW systems.
For example, the u/s (but not 'faulty') RA at Schiphol could have been identified by sanity and/or consistency checks, and [manually] taken out of service.
