Automated Vibration Level Assessment for Airborne Equipment

2023-01-1143
In this study, a custom software tool is developed to automate the task of comparing equipment exposed vibration levels in flights as per equipment’s vibration qualification level derived from Section 8 of the RTCA DO-160 standard [1]. The tool which is based on open-source libraries, automated the manual and hence error-prone procedure. ...Comparisons against a commercial spectrum analysis software are performed to validate the accuracy of the in-house developed tool’s frequency spectrum calculations before decorating this core with layers providing conveniences to users, for instance, vibration frequencies and levels from DO-160 and MIL-STD-810 [2] are embedded into the tool and are self-regulated based on the user input data.

ESD testing according to RTCA DO-160D, Section 25

1999-06-22
1999-01-2410
Cabin electronic equipment can be effected by electrostatic discharge due to environmental and installation conditions, such as low relative humidity and the use of poor or non-conductive materials for carpets, seat textiles, arm rests etc., which exist in all locations within the aircraft. For ESD testing, different Human Body Models, such as the MIL-STD-833 and the RTCA DO-160D (comparable to IEC 1000-4-2) were applied to the passenger entertainment system to reproduce the same system failures observed by different customers. Comparison of the models showed that only the contact discharge with a modified network of the DO-160D standard is the appropriate test method to recreate the problems observed on current equipment and to obtain reproducable test results. Therefore it is recommanded that section 25 of the DO-160D for cabin electronic equipment be modifed.

This paper contains RF radiated emission and susceptibility data from passive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags and readers operating at 13.56 MHz, 915 MHz, and 2.45 GHz. Laboratory test procedures incorporated the methods of RTCA DO-160D (test procedures for aviation electrical/electronic equipment) and DO-233 (test procedures for consumer portable electronic devices (PEDs)). Only one commercially available system was evaluated per established operating frequencies.

An Overview of the EMC Requirements in RTCA/DO-160G

2012-01-2147
RTCA/DO-160G, Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment, prepared by RTCA Special Committee 135, was issued on December 8, 2010, superseding the previous version, DO-160F [1]. DO-160G covers standard procedures and environmental test criteria for testing airborne electrical and electronic equipment (avionics). The tests specified in DO-160G are typically performed to meet Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) or other international regulations covering electrical or electronic equipment that is installed on commercial aircraft. The tests and test levels/limits (also referred to as “Equipment Categories”) found in DO-160G are applicable to virtually every type of aircraft in use today, including small general aviation aircraft, business jets, helicopters, regional jets, and “Jumbo Jets” such as the newest airliners from Airbus (the A350XWB) and Boeing (the 747-8).

ARP4087D
This SAE Aerospace Recommend Practice (ARP) is intended to cover the external lights on fixed wing aircraft for illuminating the wing leading edge and engine nacelles and the upper surfaces of the wing. The addition of an ice detection system should be implemented when the areas to inspect are not visible from the aircraft cockpit. It is not intended that this recommended practice require the use of any particular light source such as halogen, LED, or other specific design of lamp.

HISTORICAL
ARP1070C
This document recommends minimum requirements for antiskid brake control to provide total aircraft systems compatibility. Design and operational goals, general theory, and functions, which should be considered by the aircraft brake system engineer to attain the most effective skid control performance, are covered in detail. Methods of determining and evaluating antiskid system performance are discussed. While this document specifically addresses antiskid systems which are a part of a hydraulically actuated brake system, the recommended practices are equally applicable to brakes actuated by other means, such as electrically actuated brakes.
