    A critical review is presented of the currents and the electric and magnetic fields characteristic of each of the salient discharge processes which make up cloud-to-ground and intracloud lightning. Emphasis is placed on the more recent work in which measured waveform variation is in the microsecond and submicro- second range, since it is this time-scale that is of primary importance in lightning/a...

    Although the triggering of lightning to ground stations using wire-trailing rockets has become somewhat routine, it has not yet been proven that free-flying aircraft trigger lightning. However, there is substantial evidence that aircraft are somehow involved in the initiation of the: strikes which they experience. This paper reviews the evidence and arguments for aircraft-triggered lightning. The ... View full abstract»

    The measurement of electromagnetic fields and related quantities in a lightning environment is a challenging problem, especially at high frequencies and/or in the immediate vicinity of the lightning arcs and corona. This paper reviews the techniques for accomplishing such measurements in these regimes with examples. These sensors are often the same as for the nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP), b...

    Possible airborne warning systems other than radar for avoidance of thunderstorms and lightning strikes to aircraft can include one or more of the various types of instruments surveyed here. One class of warning system considered is concerned with lightning strikes initiated ("triggered") by the aircraft itself when in high-field environments within electrified but "nonthundery" clouds. Since data... View full abstract»

    Protection of aircraft against the physical-damage effects and fuel-vapor ignition hazards of lightning has long been a concern of aircraft designers. These hazards are now referred to as the "direct effects" and include the damage that may occur at the lightning-attachment spots on the aircraft, as well as the possibility of electrical sparking that may occur within fuel tanks. As aircraft design... View full abstract»

    The electromagnetic interaction of lightning with aircraft is a complex event. Because of new aircraft technologies, it is becoming more important to be able to predict and understand lightning-induced transients on avionics systems. In this paper, a review of state of the art of lightning-interaction modeling is presented. The overall interaction process is discussed, and specific modeling techni... View full abstract»

    Static electrification of the airframe can often cause electromagnetic interference on aircraft radios. This paper reviews the causes and possible effects of this phenomenon. Sources of static electrification include frictional charging by precipitation particles, engine exhaust non-neutrality (at low altitudes), and exogenous electric fields (between oppositely charged cloud regions). The potenti... View full abstract»

    Laboratory simulation testing is relied upon for assessing the effects of lightning on aircraft and other areospace systems. This paper reviews the laboratory equipment, techniques, and test waveforms used in simulating the important effects of atmospheric electricity on aerospace systems. Test criteria and techniques are well established for simulating the direct physical damage effects of lightn... View full abstract»

    Possible approaches for assessing the susceptibility/vulnerability of aircraft to both the direct and indirect (induced) effects of lightning and for developing lightning-protection design criteria are examined. Particular emphasis is focused on methods that can be used to achieve a high level of confidence in aircraft safety and survival. Assessment factors and their uncertainties are qualitative...
