About this Webinar

Almost everything about aircraft engineering involves safety-critical decisions, especially electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electromagnetic environmental effects (E3). One of the most dramatic illustrations of this is ensuring that aircraft remains airborne when lightning bursts nearby or when they suffer a direct strike.

This webinar illustrates lightning basics and specific techniques for protecting aircraft from these strikes and proving to certifying agencies that the protection is adequate. This will cover both historical approaches and cutting-edge combinations of simulation and testing.
