General Requirements for Noncertified Cargo/Baggage Containers
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) covers the requirements for lower deck containers in wide body and standard body aircraft which do not require airworthiness certification under the condition of compartment restraint and/or, where applicable according to aircraft type, NAS3610 equivalent baseplate-restraint for these containers. NOTE: IATA 50/0, "Requirements for interlining of ULDs", should also be taken into account when designing and making equipment.
This document needs an update to include reference to AS36100 in addition to NAS3610. The sketches (Figure 1) needs a major update on vertical recess clearance, container corner view and table data, to coincide with current requirements as found in the ULD Technical Manual. Some small typos also to be corrected.
