Description

This course will discuss the concepts of aircraft ground and flight testing that may be required to ensure that aircraft level systems are safe for operation when exposed to the effects of Electromagnetic Effects (EME), High Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF), Lightning, Precipitation Static (P-Static), and Transmitting Personal Electronic Devices (TPEDs). This course will discuss the fundamentals of coordinating and performing aircraft testing from a very practical, step-by-step perspective, and examine the process used by aircraft OEMs to show compliance to regulations relating to EME, HIRF, lightning, p-static, and TPEDs. The course will also include a high-level overview for electromagnetic effects areas; topics discussed include Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), High Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF), Lightning Transit Analysis, Precipitation Static (P-Static) and Transmitting Personal Electronic Devices (TPEDs) requirements.


Includes instruction, couse materials, refreshments and lunches. The course notes are for participants only and are not for sale. This course may be taught by one or both instructors.
