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 Wilcox Mark ID. The report consists of four 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 cross reference to the equipment manuals, characteristics of leadless transient suppressors and a bibliography of other sources used for reference. Author
