The Impact of ISO/TC20/SC9, Air Cargo and Ground Equipment Standards on New Aircraft Design 831515

This paper deals with specific standards related to air cargo equipment and systems and associated ground equipment produced by ISO/TC20/Subcommittee 9 and why these standards must be recognized in configurating cargo aircraft of the future. Emphasis is placed on standards for cargo unit load devices, i.e., containers (especially the 8 × 8 ft size), pallets, nets and the associated loading equipment as to their role in affecting aircraft design. Various concepts for the wide-body cargo airplane of the future are also explored.
