Abstract:

Precipitation static generated on aircraft by corona discharges has long been recognized as a major problem in the design of noise-free radio communication systems. However, little attention has been given to the radiated electromagnetic fields that accompany the discharge process. This report describes work performed by the Denver Research Institute in the investigation of the electromagnetic fields radiated by conducting bodies in corona. The investigation of e-m radiation from corona discharges has covered a broad range of experimental and analytical work. The work has included studies of the radiation from corona currents in air and from point discharges at one end of a charged conducting cylinder, field measurements of the natural noise environment at sea, and some observations of signals associated with low flying commercial aircraft.
