Abstract : Due to the use of new materials, the enlargement of the electromagnetic environment, the increasing susceptibility of electronic components and the arising dependence on satisfactorily functioning electronics, greater attention must be paid to electromagnetic effects in modern aircraft development. The increase in the scope of problems in comparison with the past and the possibilities which can be recommended for their solution are presented in this paper. (Author)
