Static Discharge 

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) tests are performed in accordance with TOP 1-2511.  ESD testing capabilities can be broken up into two categories: personnel-level and helicopter-level.


The personnel-level (25,000 volts direct current [VDC]) ESD simulator is hand portable, which allows for discharge at any point system under test.


Helicopter-level (350,000 VDC) tests are performed by the item under test on nonconductive blocks, attaching one of a DC power supply to the item, and bringing a ground wand near enough to the test item to discharge the electrical charge.
