Minimum Performance Standard for Aircraft Position Lights

2018-03-29
WIP
AS8037D
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) establishes minimum performance standards for new equipment position lights. This Aerospace Standard defines minimum light intensity in terms of candelas in vertical and horizontal directions about the longitudinal, vertical, and lateral axes of the aircraft. It also defines color tolerances in terms of limiting chromaticities for the light emitted from the position lights. It is not intended that this standard require the use of any particular light source such as quartz-halogen, incandescent, or any other specific design of lamp.
