Title
Human Factors Considerations for Outdoor Laser Operations in the Navigable Airspace
Scope
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) provides a method for protecting the navigable airspace around airports from unwanted laser illuminations and a procedure for proponents to seek approval from regulatory agencies for operations of various classes of laser devices and their applications within this volume of airspace. This document also provides a system of data disclosure deemed necessary for a regulatory agency to determine the potential safety effect of proposed outdoor laser activities upon flight operations within the defined airspace.

The purpose of this document is to establish a standard protocol for safe co-existence of aircraft operations and various types of ground-based laser operations within the navigable airspace. It also provides a method for flight crews to report in-flight illuminations to their respective regulatory authorities.
