Lightning Protection of Avionics
Lightning Protection for Avionics is a four-and-one-half day course for engineers concerned with lightning protection design and certification for aircraft avionics and other electrical systems. The course includes a detailed study of lightning indirect effects and coupling mechanisms, analysis and testing of transient levels, specific protection-design scenarios and techniques, and a thorough discussion of certification plans and verification-test methods and procedures. Emphasis is given to the protection of flight-critical and essential systems.
This course has been designed to give students the practical information and basic understanding required for meaningful work in this technology and to avoid common pitfalls such as misinterpretation of requirements and costly over-designs. The course has been developed by engineers currently active in the lightning protection design and certification of the world’s most advanced aerospace vehicles and systems.
Students should have experience with design of airframes, propulsion systems, electrical and avionics systems or other on-board components or systems. A degree in a related technical area is advisable but not required. Students should be conversant with design techniques and should be actively engaged in the planning, design or certification of new aircraft or components.
