Commercial passenger aircraft are on average struck by lightning once a year. The In-flight Lightning Strike Damage Assessment System (ILDAS) project is to develop and validate a prototype of a system capable of in-flight measurement of the current waveform and reconstruction of the path of lightning current. This paper discusses the various magnetic sensors, their rationale and some tests. Inductive sensors require an integrator in the signal conditioning. Much attention has been paid to the passive integrator, which is the first integrator stage preliminarily responsible for EMC.
