Abstract:

The purpose of the Lightning Protection Study is to determine the degree of susceptibility of the Federal Aviation Administration electronic systems to induced electromagnetic pulse effects due to lightning, and to propose protective devices adequate for low voltage electronic systems. This report covers the investigation of the protection required for one specific equipment, the AIL Mark I. Additional equipments will be reported on separately and include the Wilcox Mark IA, Wilcox Mark IC, and AIL Type 55K. The report consists of three brief chapters describing the lightning protection requirements, the types of susceptible components and methods used to determine their withstand capabilities and finally, recommendations for specific protection devices and circuitry. Appendices include a bibliography of sources used for reference and complete circuit and block diagrams of the affected sub-systems.
