During summer 2010 a 7-sensor lightning detection network of type 'LINET' has been installed around KSC in Florida in order to test the detection efficiency of both cloud-to-ground and cloud strokes. The VLF/LF network has 3D capability and, thus, can detect cloud strokes along with their emission heights. Comparison with LDAR2 data revealed that LINET recognized almost all cloud flashes. Additional information can be derived from LIS observations. A significant number of LIS overpasses have been observed and the number of strokes, flashes, and spatial correlations have been analyzed. LINET data from a variety of storms at and near KSC have been inspected and the distribution of emission heights from positive and negative IC strokes was examined. Characteristic structures have been found, which were in good agreement with the corresponding LADR2 source point distributions. The observed performance characteristics of LIS, LINET and LDAR2 are commented.
