Abstract : A literature review has been performed on spacecraft electrical anomalies, arc discharges on spacecraft and laboratory simulations of spacecraft materials, and measurements of electrical transients on spacecraft. Analyses in the literature of the probable causes of the observed anomalies are summarized along with the data on measured electrical transients on operating spacecraft. An arc type is tentatively selected for further laboratory investigations of its radiated RF and other characteristics. A brief description of the proposed test plan is given. (Author)
