The document presents the findings of a three-phase program consisting of laboratory tests, ground tests, and a full-scale flight test program to evaluate methods for active dissipation of the static Electricity buildup on the Heavy Lift Helicopter HLH. Remote helicopter-borne electric field mills were also evaluated as sensors of the electrical potential between the hovering helicopter and the ground. Flight tests were conducted on a CH-47 helicopter, since the HLH is currently in its development stage. This document also presents the final results of the static electricity drainage tests for the Heavy Lift Helicopter HLH Advanced Technology Component ATC development program.
