This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is devoted to the challenges of applying optics to new advanced RF analog systems only; digital data link applications are covered elsewhere in protocol/architecture specific documents like Fibre Channel, ATM, Ethernet, Sonet, etc.
in this AIR should be considered, as opposed to long-life operation and environmental requirements of a manned aircraft, engine-driven pump. Appendix A is intended to indicate typical environments for several different types of missiles. The actual requirements for a given system should be used and specified in the detailed specification.Missile pumps are categorized by a moderate testing life and a relatively short operational service life. Generally, the pumps are operated at higher speeds, temperatures, and pressures than those used in manned aircraft systems, yet reliability must be extremely high, since there rarely is a redundant system aboard the missile. Due to the short but critical life and performance requirements, development, reliability and acceptance testing should be focussed on eliminating infant mortality failures. Missile pumps must be compatible with very severe environmental conditions during the service life.
The scope of this document is to provide manufacturers with an alternate means to comply to AS5692.
The scope of the test method is to provide stakeholders including fluid manufacturers, brake manufacturers, aircraft constructors, aircraft operators and airworthiness authorities with a relative assessment of the effect of deicing chemicals on carbon oxidation. This simple test is only designed to assess the relative effects of runway deicing chemicals by measuring mass change of contaminated and bare carbon samples tested under the same conditions. It is not possible to set a general acceptance threshold oxidation limit based on this test method because carbon brake stack oxidation is a function of heat sink design and the operating envirnoment.
This standard should provide accurate fuel consumption prediction methods throughout the flight regime. The standard should apply to any fixed-wing, turbofan or turbojet-powered airplane.

The aim of this document is to provide a comprehensive synopsis of regulations applicable to aircraft oxygen systems. The context of physiological requirements, international regulations, operational requirements and airworthiness standards is shown to understand the role of aircraft oxygen systems and to demonstrate under which circumstances is needed on aircraft. With regards to National Aviation Regulations States are committed to the Convention on International Aviation (Chicago Convention). The majority of states have adopted, with some deviations, FAA and EASA systems including operational and airworthiness requirements. Accordingly the extent of this document is primarily focused on FAA/EASA requirements.

The information presented in this AIR is intended to provide information about current remote identification methods and practical considerations for remotely identifying UAS. Depending on rigor and adherence requirements, Aerospace Standard (AS) and Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) documents may be developed. For example, ARPs may provide methods to remotely identify UAS using existing hardware technologies typically available to most consumers. ARPs may also specify the information exchange and message format between unmanned aerial systems and remote interrogation instruments. An AS, however, may highlight the wireless frequency band, message type, message encoding bits, and message contents.
The development of future more-and full-electric aircraft concepts has significantly impacted aircraft electric power system (EPS) design. Finalizing the EPS architectures involves extensive modeling and simulation activities to ensure the required characteristics of the entire EPS prior to the physical implementation. Hence, the development of accurate, effective and computational time-saving simulation models is of great importance. Correspondingly, there is a need to establish an EPS-specific modeling and simulations common framework to ensure effective and accurate solutions to the problems addressed. The document continues a series of AE-7M documents specific for aircraft electrical systems aiming to establish such a framework (the series has started with AIR 6326 "Aircraft Electrical Power Systems. Modeling and Simulation. Definitions" issued in August, 2015).
