Abstract : An electrostatic hazards assessment of procedures and service clothing used during flightline operations that involve electro-explosive devices (EEDs) has been completed. The assessment includes measurements of the body-to-ground resistance, capacitance and body potential for personnel in service clothing. Activities involved in the loading of 20 mm ammunition into an F/A-18 aircraft provide a focus for the investigation.
