Measurement Procedures for Strobe Anticollision Lights
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides the user with standardized guidelines for the measurement of effective intensity of strobe anticollision lights for aircraft in the laboratory, in maintenance facilities, and in the field. A common source of traceability for calibration of the measurement systems, compensation for known causes of variation in light output, and recommendations which minimize sources of errors and uncertainties are included in this document. Estimates of uncertainty and error sources for each class of measurement are discussed.
Revised to confirm the provisions and requirements of the ARP as issued in 1998 and reaffirmed in 2007 and to add references to current photobiological guidelines and standards
