Safety Criteria for Pneumatic Starting Systems

1999-03-01
CURRENT
AIR1639A
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) presents safety criteria for pneumatic type engine starting system design and component hardware. Included are safety criteria in design of both starter control valves and starters as well as in design of airframe control systems. Safety topics concern starter valve operation and material application, airframe controls and instrumentation installations and starter rotor integrity and containment.

Engine Electrostatic Gas Path Monitoring

1999-03-01
HISTORICAL
AIR4986
Turbine engine malfunctions account for a substantial portion of the maintenance actions required to keep both fixed and rotary wing aircraft operational. Undetected incipient component failures can result in secondary engine damage and expensive unscheduled maintenance actions. Recent developments of electrostatic methods now provide the potential for the detection of foreign object ingestion and early detection of distress in gas path components. This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) seeks to outline the history of the electrostatic technique and provides examples of state-of-the-art systems for both inlet and exhaust gas debris monitoring systems along with examples of most recent testing.

Aerospace Fly-by-Light Actuation Systems

1999-03-01
HISTORICAL
AIR4982
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) has been prepared to provide information regarding options for optical control of fluid power actuation devices. It is not intended to establish standards for optical fluid power control, but rather is intended to provide a baseline or foundation from which standards can be developed. It presents and discusses approaches for command and communication with the actuation device via electro-optic means. The development of standards will require industry wide participation and cooperation to ensure interface commonality, reliability, and early reduction to practice. To facilitate such participation, this document provides potential users of the technology a balanced consensus on its present state of development, the prospects for demonstration of production readiness, and a discussion of problem areas within this technology.

Composite and Bonded Structure Engineers: Training Document

1999-03-01
CURRENT
AIR5278
This document provides recommendations concerning the minimum knowledge and analytical skill guidelines for a composite and metal bond repair design engineer. Teaching levels have been assigned to this curriculum to define the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to design appropriate repairs. Minimum hours of instruction have been provided to ensure adequate lecture and laboratory coverage of all subject matter. These minimums may be exceeded, and may include an increase in the total number of training hours and/or increases in the teaching levels.

Reliability Program Standard Implementation Guide

1999-03-01
HISTORICAL
JA1000/1_199903
The importance of reliability in design engineering has significantly grown since the early Sixties. Competition has been a primary driver in this growth. The three realities of competition today are: world class quality and reliability, cost-effectiveness, and fast time-to-market. Formerly, companies could effectively compete if they could achieve at least two of these features in their products and product development processes, often at the expense of the third. However, customers today, whether military, aerospace, or commercial, have been sensitized to a higher level of expectation and demand products that are highly reliable, yet affordable. Product development practices are shifting in response to this higher level of expectation. Today, there is seldom time, or necessary resources to extensively test, analyze, and fix to achieve high quality and reliability.

Electromagnetic Interference Measurement Antennas; Standard Calibration Method

1999-03-01
CURRENT
ARP958D
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) outlines a standard method for the checkout and calibration of electromagnetic interference measurement antennas. Its primary application is for use when measuring a source 1 m from the antenna in a shield room versus a source at a greater distance (far field). This is the typical distance used in performing military EMC testing. Thus, this is a method of calibration. Shield room characteristics are not considered. It does not address an unknown distributed source. Yet it is close to reality since it is based on another antenna that represents a distributed source. This document presents a technique to determine antenna factors for antennas used primarily in performing measurements in accordance with 2.1 and 2.2. The purpose of Revision B is to include the calibration of other antennas, such as small loop antennas that are also specified for use in these same references.

Minimum Performance Standard for Airborne Head Up Display (HUD)

1999-03-01
HISTORICAL
AS8055
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) specifies minimum performance standards for airborne binocular Head Up Displays (HUDs) in fixed wing aircraft. This document covers criteria for conformal and non-conformal HUD systems that are intended for use in the cockpit by the pilot or copilot. Display minimum performance characteristics are specified for standard and other environmental conditions for the purpose of product qualification. This document does not address sensor imaging systems, displays worn by the pilot (goggles, helmet mounted displays) or specific symbology to be displayed.

Data Word and Message Formats

1999-01-01
HISTORICAL
AS15532
The emphasis in this standard is the development of data word and message formats for AS15531 or MIL-STD-1553 data bus applications. This standard is intended as a guide for the designer to identify standard data words and messages for use in avionics systems and subsystems. These standard words and messages, as well as the documentation format for interface control document (ICD) sheets, provide the basis for defining 15531/1553 systems. Also provided in this standard is the method for developing additional data word formats and messages that may be required by a particular system but are not covered by the formats provided herein. It is essential that any new word formats or message formats that are developed for a 15531/1553 application follow the fundamental guidelines established in this standard in order to ease future standardization of these words and messages. The standard word formats presented represent a composite result of studies conducted by the U.S.
