About this book

Introduction

Civil and military aircraft – and aerospace vehicles in general – face two related problems:
- They depend heavily upon electronic systems and thus must be shielded against electromagnetic interference (EMI). This interference may come in the form of lighting strikes, interference from radio emitters, nuclear electromagnetic pulses (EMP), or even high power microwave (HPM) threats
- Environmental conditions including moisture, rain, and pollution from the atmosphere may corrode airframes, skin, and other bonded joints. Most importantly, this corrosion may damage the conductivity and electromagnetic shielding of the vehicle

This book addresses both problems.
