Environmental Degradation of Textiles

2019-04-24
CURRENT
AIR1490C
Since cargo restraint devices made with textiles should have a predictable service life, there should be data available so that predictions can be made. This document compiles available information on textiles of the types used in air cargo restraint devices and reviews the degradation characteristics of each. Textiles are used primarily in cargo restraint nets on air cargo pallets and nonstructural containers, restraint nets installed in cargo aircraft, and similar applications.

AIR4165B
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is intended to assist the user (aircraft manufacturer/airline) in the following areas: a. In the decision of whether or not to plan for the installation of a powered drive system in the cargo loading system (CLS) during the definition of the aircraft on-board cargo loading system. b. If a powered drive system is decided upon, to provide general requirements to be considered during the preparation of component specifications for the powered drive units (PDUs) to be used. This provides a selection of criteria in order to obtain an optimum PDU for the application considered.

Environmental Degradation of Composite Materials

2018-10-18
CURRENT
ARP6287
In accordance with § 4.11 of AS36100, materials used in the construction of pallets, nets, and containers shall take into account the effects of environmental conditions, such as temperature, humidity, and UV degradation, expected in service. In accordance with (E)TSO-C90, the applicant shall consider environmental degradation due to aging, ultra-violet (UV) exposure, weathering, etc., for any materials used in the construction of pallets, nets, and containers. The purpose of this Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) is to provide guidelines for the basic requirements to be considered regarding environmental degradation effects when qualifying composite materials in the design to fulfill the (E)TSO-C90 Minimum Performance Standard. Material qualification is the verifying of a materials attributes and characterizations, which are typically determined through testing.

Air Cargo Equipment Tracking Device - Performance and Test Requirements

2018-10-16
WIP
AS7353
Develop an AS for the minimum performance requirements for tracking devices that are utilized to track the location and other environmental conditions of a piece of equipment that will be transported on-board an aircraft, .i.e ULD, TCC, FRC. The AS will define test requirements or regulation that a device will need to meet to demonstrate no impact to its use on-board an aircraft operation and its crew. The goal would be to request a TSO be developed based on this new standard.

WIP
AS8995
This standard defines the minimum performance and test requirements for air cargo lashing line. Air cargo lashing line may be used for repair, replacement, or tensioning on an air cargo net approved in accordance with NAS3610 or AS36100 (TSO-C90) where approved by the net manufacturer in the net's Component Maintenance Manual or equivalent document. Air cargo lashing line may be used on cargo to stabilize or prevent the shift of the cargo when the air cargo lashing line is used underneath a net or inside of a container that meets the requirements of TSO-C90. Air cargo lashing line may be used within an aircraft’s bulk cargo compartment for cargo stabilization and shift prevention when that use is not limited by the aircraft’s Weight and Balance Manual. Air cargo lashing line must not be as a replacement for an air cargo strap that provides primary restraint of cargo to an aircraft or pallet.
