General Requirements for Powered Drive Units (PDUs) in Aircraft Cargo Systems

2019-10-02
CURRENT
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.

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.

Air Cargo Lashing Line

2018-05-16
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.

Aircraft Cargo Door Opening/Sill Details for Ground Support Equipment Interface

2014-09-30
CURRENT
AIR1673B
Manufacturers/designers of all aircraft equipped with a pallet/container capability have provided a means of linking the ground loaders/elevators with the aircraft sill for the smoother transfer of pallets and containers into or out of the aircraft holds. Use of the aircraft attachment points may be used as a means of averting damage to the aircraft door frames and other important parts. Latch-on guarantees fore and aft and vertical alignment of the loader bed with the aircraft doorway, when used in conjunction with the appropriate ground equipment. This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) has been prepared by SAE Subcommittee AGE-2A to present a review of the current range of aircraft attachment points on wide body aircraft and those narrow body aircraft with a ULD cargo capability. Airline operators, who utilized these facilities, have been faced with a growing number of adaptor bars necessary to suit each type of aircraft and door position.

This Aerospace Standard establishes minimum requirements for pallets used to transport cargo in aircraft equipped with NAS 3610 restraint systems, except as noted, and using nets meeting the requirements of AS 1492. The minimum essential criteria are identified by the use of the key word "shall". Recommended criteria are identified by the key word "should" and while not mandatory are considered to be of primary importance in providing servicable, economical, and practical air transport pallets. Deviation from the recommended criteria should occur only after careful consideration, extensive testing, and thorough service evaluation have shown alternate methods to be satisfactory.

Minimum Requirements for Air Cargo Unit Load Device Ground Handling and Transport Systems

2011-09-07
CURRENT
ARP1372C
The requirements of this SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) are applicable to ground handling and transport systems equipment which is designated to accommodate main deck unitized cargo in the form of intermodal containers and other compatible unitized load devices. Intermodality in the context of this document concerns primarily air and land modes but does not exclude the marine mode. Equipment with compatibility features for other than main deck cargo is likewise not excluded. It is not the intent of this document to specify equipment design but rather to ensure interface compatibility of the various elements which might make up a total ground handling and transport system developed within a number of different operational schemes. It is the intent of this document to specify minimum ULD handling and restraint features to ensure future interchange capability.
