Methods and technologies for aircraft safety and protection against electromagnetic hazards

Methods and technologies for aircraft safety and protection against electromagnetic hazards

Objective

The project will develop efficient methods and technologies to handle electromagnetic effects, inclusive lightning strikes to aircraft. The developed methods and technologies will focus on the emerging need from the European aircraft industries to use new composite materials; new structural concepts; new advanced avionics concepts, especially IMA and more electric aircraft. For all of these new technologies, each will contribute to further increase in the technological and competitive advantage of the European aircraft community. Electromagnetic aspects and efficient protection and certification strategies will have a major impact. EM-HAZ main outputs will be a tool for lightning zoning, an in-flight design and development support, efficient protection strategies, compliance demonstration and maintenance routines.
