To protect sensitive aircraft components from damage due to lightning strikes, DG designs and manufactures numerous proven, state-of-the-art lightning protection products, including:
Lightning Diverter Segmented Strips
The segmented strips provide multiple heavy strike protection and are RF transparent. Their lower breakdown voltage means superior lightning protection and less likelihood of lightning damage. The strips can be repaired easily and inexpensively in comparison to repairing a damaged radome.
Strikeguard Lightning Diverter Tape
The diverter tape is a flexible substrate with strong adhesive backing designed for low speed aircraft. Strikeguard diverts streamers and strikes to appropriate positions on aircraft and can withstand multiple strikes. It is similar to the segmented strips but is easier to install and replace.
HF Lightning Arresters
The HF lightning arrester is designed to provide the most reliable protection available, protecting an HF radio from lightning that attaches to the antenna.
Adjustable Spark Gap Lightning Arrester
The spark gap is designed as a protection device to shunt lightning currents to ground, thus preventing high voltages and currents from damaging radio equipment. The spark gap is adjustable for a range of breakdown voltages.
Lightning Protection Kits
The kit provides lightning protection and p-static dissipation to the winglet and the end cap. The kits improve the overall lightning protection for the aircraft and minimize the cost of downtime repairs.
