The tests are static in nature to minimize complexity and cost of required testing facilities. As far as practical, applied static loads should take into account the combined static and dynamic loads anticipated in service. It is intended that tests shall be non-destructive in nature and not result in damage unless ultimate load conditions are employed. Test equipment and methods of testing described are not meant to be restrictive. Alternate equivalent methods to accomplish the desired results may be employed. In selected cases, tests may be repeated under ultimate load conditions when required for substantiation of analytical data. If this becomes necessary, the parts deformed may be removed and replaced prior to the retest.

ULD for Aircraft Transportation of Horses

HISTORICAL
ARP1621B
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) defines minimum requirements for an aircraft transport ULD to transport horses properly and safely by air, to protect the horse(s) from injuries, and to protect the aircraft from corrosion created by waste spill. The ULD is designed to accommodate one horse or several. There are two types of ULDs for aircraft transportation of horses: a Type 1: The ULD is an airworthiness certified structural container, satisfying the requirements of NAS 3610 for the appropriate base size. b Type 2: The ULD consists of a self-contained stall which is positioned on a standard aircraft pallet and restrained to the pallet by means of a cargo pallet net or by straps. WARNING: It is the carrier’s responsibility to obtain airworthiness approval for a Type 2 unit using strap-restraint. Refer to 7.1 b (Documentation).

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.

AS1491B
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.

Past experience has shown that in-service defects in regard to the above equipment cause high devices cost. Greater control of maintenance is required. Included in this document are requirements for conveyor systems, guides, stops, resitraint hardware that are used on trucks, transporters, dollies, storage provisions, pallet build-up hoists, or other ULD-handling equipment. These requirements reflect state of the art criteria applied to known successfully operated hardware. Any design deviations shall be required to demonstrate equivalency to this specification criteria.

General Requirements for Noncertified Cargo/Baggage Containers

2013-06-27
CURRENT
AS1677D
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) covers the design, fabrication, performance and operational testing requirements for lower deck containers for use in main line aircraft which do not require airworthiness certification when loaded under the conditions of compartment restraint and in accordance with the aircraft's Weight and Balance Manual and/or, where applicable according to the aircraft type's approved Weight and Balance Manual, AS36100A or NAS 3610 equivalent base plate restraint for these containers. Most sizes of containers covered by this document (base sizes K, L, P, and Q) cannot physically be loaded and latched on aircraft main deck cargo systems. Base size A and M containers can, but are not allowed on aircraft main decks, which do not accept non-certified units. Accordingly, all containers covered by this document are to be used/installed exclusively in aircraft lower deck compartments.
