SAE Metallic Materials Testing Laboratories, is a technical Subcommittee in SAE’s Aerospace Materials Systems Group with the responsibility to develop and maintain material specifications and other SAE technical reports for Aerospace Metallic Materials Testing Requirements. The Subcommittee works in conjunction with related bodies such as the Performance Review Institute (PRI), and regulatory authorities such as FAA and EASA. The objectives of MTL are to: • Develop Aerospace Specifications (AS) for the control of materials testing specific to aerospace applications. • Provide a forum for the exchange of technical information related to aerospace materials testing. • Further the adaptation of industry sponsored material specifications through coordination with PRI and associated organizations. • Establish a system to ensure aerospace specifications are controlled.
The Application Guide will provide additional information on the application and use of SAE1001, including different development approaches, specialties and domains, as well as scalability to different project and system scope. (SAE-1001/1 - Information Report)
The Habitability standard practice identifies the recommended approach for conducting Habitability activities in support of system acquisition programs. This standard covers all aspects of the physical environment that people inhabit, for work, or other purpose. It includes adequate space and environmental/temperature controls and, if appropriate, requirements for personnel services (e.g., medical, dental and mess) and living conditions (e.g., berthing and personal hygiene) that have a direct impact on meeting or sustaining system performance/effectiveness or that have such an adverse impact on safety, health, comfort, quality of life and morale that recruitment or retention is degraded. It includes analysis, modeling and simulation, design, and verification of Habitability requirements and processes.
The Design for Maintainer (DFM) standard identifies the recommended approach for conducting Design for Maintainability activities in support of system acquisition programs. The standard identifies general requirements and processes of a successful DFM program during concept and design development to ensure the lowest possible ownership costs. This standard provides specific detailed contractor requirements for DFM activities inclusive of the Human Engineering domain. The standard is consistent with MIL-STD-46855 and SAE 6906 Human Systems Integration. And DFM standard practices support performance of activities in coordination with other associated disciplines such as maintainability, supportability, and integrated logistics.
The Protection and Survivability (FP&S) standard practice identifies the recommended approach for conducting FP&S activities in support of system acquisition programs. This standard covers FP&S processes throughout system conceptualization, design, development, verification, production, use and disposal. FP&S includes analysis, modeling and simulation, design and verification of system-related survivability characteristics and processes designed to protect personnel from direct threats and accidents, including primary and secondary effects from the events.
The Personnel standard practice identifies the recommended approach for conducting Personnel activities in support of system acquisition programs. This standard covers Personnel processes throughout system conceptualization, design, development, verification, production, use and disposal. Personnel addresses skills, grades, aptitudes, physical attributes and education and training backgrounds of military and civilian personnel required to operate, maintain, train and support the system equipment and associated support equipment and facilities in its operational environment. It includes analysis, modeling and simulation, design support and verification of Personnel estimates and requirements.
