This article provides a brief Executive Overview of how modern Dissipation Array Systems work.
Storm clouds produce electrical “leaders” which descend from the cloud seeking an electrical connection. Storms also cause “upward rising streamers” to rise from ground-based objects. When a downward traveling “leader” connects with an upward-rising “streamer”, a connection is formed and a strike occurs.
The Dissipation Array System (DAS) prevents the formation of “streamers” on ground-based objects. If no “streamer” is formed, no connection is made, and no strike occurs within the area protected by DAS.
