Active Compound Plasma Lightning (CPLR) Rejection System

Airports have lightning protection in place using present-day “lightning rod” technology. Yet airports continue to experience lightning damage and must shut down airside operations during a lightning event. Brightex offers an alternative protection that prevents lightning from striking the airport and allows operations to continue uninterrupted during a lightning event. The purpose of this paper is to: Define lightning and the associated dangers; Discuss current passive lightning protection methods; Present the First and only active lightning protection system; and Present Brightex’s history.
