Paper Abstract

An instrument is described that has been used to measure the spatial and temporal distributions of lightning strokes as seen from a high-altitude aircraft platform. It consists of two separate sensors. One has a lens, selectable filters, and a 50 X 50 element array of photodiodes. The second has an identical lens, filters, and a single detector that covers the same total field of view.
