Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) Compatible Illuminated Pushbutton Switches and Indicators

2017-08-24
CURRENT
ARP4822A
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) reviews the basics of NVIS compatibility and discusses the specific illuminated pushbutton switch and indicator requirements for sunlight readability, color, luminance, and NVIS radiance when used in NVIS compatible cockpits. The recommendations and special considerations set forth in this document are made to give the design engineer a better understanding of MIL-L-85762A and MIL-STD-3009 NVIS compatibility requirements and to provide information on the visual characteristics of NVIS compatible pushbutton switch and indicators. The recommendations are primarly for military aircraft since civilian aircraft FAR requirements typically do not cover NVIS applications with the exception of those covered by RTCA/DO-275.

Design Criteria for White Incandescent Lighted Aerospace Instruments

2017-07-19
CURRENT
ARP798B
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) covers the general requirements and test procedures recommended for use with white incandescent integrally lighted instruments. Its use should provide uniformity of illumination from instrument to instrument and legibility under daylight operation. An appendix is provided to familiarize the designer with some of the techniques used to obtain uniformity of color and illumination in various types of instruments.

AS50571B
This specification covers the general requirements for red and white individual instrument lights. This document has been streamlined. Appendix A to MIL-L-5057F lists those documents required for MIL-L-5057F acquisition and is a mandatory part of MIL-L-5057F. Those documents listed in Appendix A have the same status as those referenced directly in MIL-L-5057F (first tier documents). All other documents, referenced through tiering, may be used as guidance and information to supplement MIL-L-5057F. This document’s scope is limited to lamp source designs solely. Furthermore, the use of red lighting should not be considered for new design and included within this document to support requirements for existing military aircraft that still operate with this system of lighting.

Night Vision Goggles (NVG) Compatible Lighting for Civil Aircraft

2014-12-01
CURRENT
AS5452B
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) will specify what type night vision goggles are required, minimum requirements for compatible crew station lighting, aircraft exterior lighting such as anticollision lights and position/navigation lights that are "NVG compatible." Also, this document is intended to set standards for NVG utilization for aircraft so that special use aircraft such as the Coast Guard, Border Patrol, Air Rescue, Police Department, Medivacs, etc., will be better equipped to chase drug smugglers and catch illegal immigrants, rescue people in distress, reduce high-speed chases through city streets by police, etc. Test programs and pilot operator programs are required. For those people designing or modifying civil aircraft to be NVG compatible, the documents listed in 2.1.3 are essential.

Photometric and Colorimetric Measurement Procedures for Airborne Electronic Flat Panel Displays

2014-05-01
CURRENT
ARP4260B
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) contains methods used to measure the optical performance of airborne electronic flat panel display (FPD) systems. The methods described are specific to the direct view, liquid crystal matrix (x-y addressable) display technology used on aircraft flight decks. The focus of this document is on active matrix, liquid crystal displays (LCD). The majority of the procedures can be applied to other display technologies, however, it is cautioned that some techniques need to be tailored to different display technologies. The document covers monochrome and color LCD operation in the transmissive mode within the visual spectrum (the wavelength range of 380 to 780 nm). These procedures are adaptable to reflective and transflective displays paying special attention to the source illumination geometry. Photometric and colorimetric measurement procedures for airborne direct view CRT (cathode ray tube) displays are found in ARP1782.

Electroluminescence, Design Criteria and Recommendations for Use in Aerospace Vehicle Crew Station Areas

2012-02-09
CURRENT
ARP922B
The scope of this ARP is to provide general requirements for application of electroluminescence to Aerospace Vehicle Crew Station Area instruments and control panels. The design brightness and color recommendations stated in this ARP are intended to apply where a crew station has multiple usage of electroluminescence in both instruments and control panels and when different manufacturers may be involved. These recommendations may also be helpful for the design of individually used displays incorporating electroluminescence, however, this light source has extensive design versatility through variance of manufacturing and operating parameters and the numerous acceptable design recommendations will not be stated herein. Electroluminescence will herein be referred to as EL.
