Experimental studies of the mechanisms of lightning strokes to radome have shown that the protection efficiency can be related to the ability of diverter strips to initiate stable leaders before inception of energetic discharges take place inside the radome. A model based on a 3D code for electric field calculation is used to compute the threshold of these different processes and deduce the optimum strip height for a given internal electrode configuration. The results of this model are successfully compared to experimental estimation of optimum protection.
