This ARP is intended to cover the warning, caution and advisory indicating system required for commercial and military aerospace vehicles. The purpose of this ARP is to recommend certain basic considerations which the design engineer should observe when designing a visual warning indicating system. It is recognized that many types of warning indicators and systems are available for the designer to use. This ARP does not recommend any specific system but outlines design and installation requirements.

No scope available.
This specification covers the requirements for a light assembly for use on aircraft cabin desks.
Recent field experience has indicated significant problems with some types of wire and cables as routed on aircraft landing gear. This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is intended to identify environmental concerns the designer should consider, materials that appear to be most suitable for use in these areas, routing, clamping, and other protection techniques that are appropriate in these applications. In recent years aircraft certification regulatory agencies introduced new regulations regarding Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems (EWIS) to further enhance safety of the associated systems and aircraft overall.
This ARP is intended to cover all external lights on the tanker and fixed wing receiver airplanes used to accomplish aerial refueling. This ARP describes lights used for two basic types of aerial refueling: The Probe and Drogue, and the Boom/Receptacle method.
Scope is unavailable.
This test method outlines a recommended procedure for performing bond integrity tests of bonded peelable woven fabric reinforced polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) liners, hereafter referred to within this document as "PTFE liner" or "liner". The data from these tests shall be used to determine if the product meets the "bond integrity" requirements of the applicable specifications.
Bearings covered by this test method shall be plain shperical, track roller, journal or rod end bearing with PTFE liners.
This SAE Standard specifies basic tolerances and dimensions for inboard propeller-shaft ends, propeller hubs and keyways for shaft sizes 3/4 in (19 mm) through 8 in (203 mm).
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is applicable to rotorcraft structural health monitoring (SHM) applications, both commercial and military, where end users are seeking guidance on the definition, development, integration, qualification, and certification of SHM technologies to achieve enhanced safety and reduced maintenance burden based on the lessons learned from existing Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS). While guidance on SHM business case analysis would be useful to the community, such guidance is beyond the scope of this AIR. For the purpose of this document, SHM is defined as “the process of acquiring and analyzing data from on-board sensors to evaluate the health of a structure.” The suite of on-board sensors could include any presently installed aircraft sensors as well as new sensors to be defined in the future. Interrogation of the sensors could be done onboard during flight or using ground support equipment.
This standard establishes the requirements for antifriction ball bearings primarily intended for use in aircraft electrical generators and motor-generators.
This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) covers the functional, design, construction, and test requirements for Automatic Braking Systems. Installation information and lessons learned are also included.
SCOPE IS UNAVAILABLE.
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) applies to landing gear tires and airframe structure for all types and models of civil and military aircraft having tires as part of the landing gear. This report describes the advantages and disadvantages of prerotating tires prior to landing, and explains why this practice is not generally adopted. Two potential benefits of this practice are considered: 1) Tire wear and 2) Spin-up loads on the landing gear and aircraft structure.
The purpose of this document is to specify the functional requirements for a miniature connector to be used for health monitoring purposes on aircrafts (including harsh environment such as the powerplant). It is actually a family of miniature connectors that is specified in this document for various uses (e.g. pin counts) and environments. This specification will be used by the SAE connector committee to work on a dedicated connector standard.
This document recommends design objectives for navigation, position, and anticollisionlight systems for visual detection and collision avoidance between airplanes in flight and on the ground. Customers for new airplanes or lighting components, and designers or manufacturers may take advantage of this document in specifying the initial requirements that, in most cases, significantly exceed the applicable minimum intensities as shown in the Federal Aviation Regulations as well provide better stability, longer life and lower operating costs.
The purpose of this document is to provide certain basic considerations and design criteria for installation of LED landing, runway turnoff, and taxiing light systems for night operation. Criteria for recognition lights are also included.
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) contains Lessons Learned from aerospace actuation, control and fluid power systems technologies. The lessons were prepared by engineers from the aerospace industry and government services as part of the work of SAE Committee A-6, Aerospace Actuation, Control and Fluid Power Systems.
This document discusses the work done by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Waterways Experiment Station (WES) in support of SAE A-5 Committee activity on Aerospace Landing Gear Systems. It is an example of how seemingly unrelated disciplines can be combined effectively for the eventual benefit of the overall aircraft systems, where that system includes the total airfield environment in which the aircraft must operate. In summary, this AIR documents the history of aircraft flotation analysis as it involves WES and the SAE.
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) will specify what type night vision goggles are required, minimum requirements for compatible crew station lighting, aircraft exterior lighting such as anticollision lights and position/navigation lights that are "NVG compatible." Also, this document is intended to set standards for NVG utilization for aircraft so that special use aircraft such as the Coast Guard, Border Patrol, Air Rescue, Police Department, Medivacs, etc., will be better equipped to chase drug smugglers and catch illegal immigrants, rescue people in distress, reduce high-speed chases through city streets by police, etc. Test programs and pilot operator programs are required. For those people designing or modifying civil aircraft to be NVG compatible, the documents listed in 2.1.3 are essential.
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) was prepared by a panel of the SAE A-5 Committee. This document establishes the specifications for fluids used in landing gear shock struts with extreme pressure and antiwear additives that have been added for improved lubrication.
This document outlines the development process and makes recommendations for total antiskid/aircraft systems compatibility. These recommendations encompass all aircraft systems that may affect antiskid brake control. It focuses on recommended practices specific to antiskid and its integration with the aircraft as opposed to more generic practices recommended for all aircraft systems and components. It defers to the documents listed in Section 2, for generic aerospace best practices and requirements. The documents listed below are the major drivers in antiskid/aircraft integration: 1. ARP4754, Guidelines for Development of Civil Aircraft and Systems 2. ARP4761, Guidelines and Methods for Conducting the Safety Assessment Process on Civil Airborne Systems and Equipment 3. RTCA DO-178, Software Considerations in Airborne Systems and Equipment Certification 4. RTCA DO-254, Design Assurance Guidance for Airborne Electronic Hardware 5.
