Topic:

Lightning Protection for the Orion Space Vehicle

Abstract

This presentation attempts to capture at a summary level the background for, and a high level detail of the effects on, and efforts made to protect, the Orion vehicle from the direct and indirect effects of lightning during all phases of flight. The process of protection is long and complex, involving many different aspects of planning, design, infrastructure, and programmatic and meteorological support to make up a cohesive and effective whole. The end result of all of this effort is a safe and reliable Orion space vehicle with respect the threat of lightning.
