What Is LESAT?

  • LESAT - Lightning Effects Structure Analysis Tool
    • Computational methodology implemented in MATLAB to analytically predict actual transient current levels and voltages on aircraft wiring and structural elements.
    • Assists designers in protecting aircraft against the indirect effects of lightning strikes.
    • Implements the methodology used successfully for MH-47 lightning analysis.
