Abstract : Results of a ground p-static survey of an aircraft to determine p-static noise reduction are given. The effects of the airborne reception Loran-C in actual thunderstorm conditions are described. Additionally, data from flight tests conducted using an airframe biased discharger producing p-static airframe charging in flight are presented. P-static noise reduction using quality static-wick dischargers to improve Loran-C reception in flight is demonstrated. (Author)
