Stochastic impulsive systems are defined by a diffusion process with jumps triggered by a renewal process, i.e., the intervals between jumps are independent and identically distributed. We construct a model for such systems based on jump-diffusion equations and provide Lyapunov-based conditions that guarantee their mean-square stability.

As an application, we show that stochastic impulsive systems can be used to model networked control systems with stochastic inter-sampling times and packet drops. Conditions for mean-square stability of the resulting systems are provided. For linear dynamics, these conditions can be formulated in terms of Linear Matrix Inequalities.

We use two benchmark examples that previously appeared in the literature to illustrate the use of our results and to investigate their conservativeness.
