Triggered-Lightning Avoidance for Space Launches

The Space Vehicles Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory at Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts, developed a small sounding rocket to measure vertical profiles of the electric field immediately prior to lighting-triggering attempts using the well-developed “rocket-and-wire” technique. A field experiment was conducted in the summer of 1996, during which 15 pairs of sounding and triggering rockets were launched into thunderstorms, triggering nine lightning flashes.

The Environmental Modification Accountability Act of 2018

Our solution is an addendum to the international weather warfare ban requiring two things:
• TRANSPARENCY: a worldwide requirement to give 48 hour notice before modifying or experimenting in our sky or surrounding atmosphere.
• VERIFICATION: create a worldwide citizen-powered sensor network to monitor atmospheric conditions, record video footage of sky conditions, and display atmospheric aerosols in real-time on a publically available website.
