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

2002-09-20
HISTORICAL
ARP922A
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.

CURRENT
ARP4169B
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) discusses the desired characteristics of night vision goggle (NVG) filters that can be used with incandescent, electroluminescent (EL) and light emitting diode (LED) light sources to achieve NVG compatible lighting of aerospace crew stations. This document also discusses the parameters that need to be considered when selecting a night vision goggle/daylight viewing (NVG/DV) filter for proper contrast enhancement to achieve readability in daylight. The recommendations set forth in this document are to aid in the design of NVG compatible lighting that will meet the requirements of MIL-L-85762A and MIL-STD-3009.

HISTORICAL
AS264E
The desired system for aircraft instrument panel and cockpit lighting is one that will furnish light of adequate intensity and distribution under all conditions of external lighting so that the crew may read instrumentation, placards, check lists, manuals, maps, instrument color coding, distinguish controls, etc., without undue interference with their vision outside of the aircraft.

Night Vision Goggle (NVG) Compatible Light Sources

2004-01-30
HISTORICAL
ARP4168A
This ARP covers three common lamp light sources, incandescent, electroluminescent and light emitting diode that, when NVG filtered, can be used to illuminate NVG compatible aerospace crew stations. It is recognized that many other different light sources can also be used for this purpose.

This ARP covers three common light sources, incandescent, electroluminescent and light emitting diode that, when NVG filtered, can be used to illuminate NVG compatible aerospace crew stations. It is recognized that many other different light sources can also be used for this purpose. Also see 2.1.1 for other SAE documents that cover particular applications within the crew station environment. This ARP sets forth recommendations for the design of NVG compatible lighting, utilizing these light sources, that will meet the requirements of MIL-L-85762 Lighting, Aircraft, Interior, Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) Compatible. This also includes the replacement document MIL-STD-3009: Lighting, Aircraft, Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) Compatible. Although this ARP concentrates on lamp light sources for illumination, the information contained within this ARP may be directly applied to incandescent, electroluminescent and light emitting diode information display devices.

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.
