Technical Manual Requirements for Ground Support Equipment

2011-11-04
CURRENT
AS4828A
This document is a guideline for format, structure and content for ground support equipment (GSE) technical manuals. This document focuses on requirements specific to the GSE industry and does not cover general technical publication practices. Additional standards for GSE and for manufacturer’s publications exist and may add requirements beyond what is covered in this standard. This may include EU Directive 2006/42/EC. This document is written in specific terms by intention, and conforms to recognized practices in the industry. When the word SHALL is used in this standard, it indicates a requirement that must be adhered to in total and does not allow for variance. When the word SHOULD is used, it indicates a recommended practice which allows the manual writer to use discretionary judgment. This document does not apply to electronic test equipment.

Technical Manual Development for Ground Support Equipment

1996-01-01
HISTORICAL
AS4828
This document shall serve as a guide for format, style, and method of presentation for all material included in manufacturers' publications for ground support equipment (GSE). These requirements shall be observed throughout all publications except where modified by detail requirements for specific publications. AS4828 is not applicable to the development or revision of electronic test equipment user manuals and documents. This document is written in general terms by intention, and in most cases conform to recognized practices in the industry. In the event there is a question which is not specifically covered by this document, the user engineering department should be contacted for guidance before proceeding to the final phase of manual development. Each manual prepared by a manufacturer shall contain an introduction which shall include a brief statement explaining the organization, content, and method for using the manual.

SOLID-STATE FREQUENCY CONVERTER 400 HERTZ, 3-PHASE OUTPUT

1989-09-01
HISTORICAL
ARP1940
This specification covers the requirements for solid-state frequency converters with 480 [or 380] V 3-phase, 60 [or 50] Hz input and 115/200 V, 3-phase, 400 Hz output capable of powering aircraft type loads requiring MIL-STD-704D quality power. The frequency converter shall be a self-contained unit suitable for the environment of intended use. Typical applications include dedicated use at passenger loading bridges (mounted under the bridge in telescoping bridge applications or fixed installation at base of stationary type loading bridges) with weatherproof enclosures or hangar/lab use where indoor fixed or portable units can be used.

Regional Aircraft Towbar Attach Fitting Interface

2002-09-20
HISTORICAL
AS5488
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) specifies the interface requirements for towbar attachment fittings on the nose gear (when towing operations are performed from the nose gear) of conventional tricycle type landing gears of commercial civil transport aircraft with a maximum ramp weight between 8600 kg (19 000 lb) and 50 000 kg (110 000 lb), commonly designated as “regional aircraft”. Its purpose is to achieve towbar attachment fittings interface standardization by aircraft weight category (which determines towbar forces) in order to ensure that one single type of towbar with a standard connection can be used for all aircraft types within or near that weight category, so as to assist operators and airport handling companies in reducing the number of different towbar types used.

Ramp Markings

HISTORICAL
ARP5910
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) outlines recommended ramp pavement marking standards for proper guidance and positioning of GSE on commercial transport aircraft parking and handling stands (gates), in line with International Civil Aviation (ICAO) recommendations applicable to airport aprons. Throughout this document, the minimum essential criteria are identified by use of the key word "shall". Recommended criteria are identified by use of the key word "should" and, while not mandatory, are considered to be of primary importance in providing safety effective ramp markings. Deviation from recommended criteria should only occur after careful consideration and thorough service evaluation have shown alternate methods to provide an equivalent level of safety.

Nose Gear Towbarless Tow Vehicle Basic Test Requirements

1997-12-01
HISTORICAL
ARP5283
The purpose of this specification is to provide airplane operators and tow vehicle manufacturers with: a General design and operating requirements pertinent to test and evaluation of towbarless tow vehicles. Specific design requirements are provided in ARP4852A and ARP4853A. b Test and evaluation requirements. The results of these test evaluations will determine if the loads induced by the tow vehicle will exceed the design loads of the nose gear, reduce the certified safe life limit of the nose gear, or induce a stability problem during pushback and/or maintenance towing operations. This document specifies general test requirements and a test evaluation procedure for towbarless tow vehicles (TLTV) intended for pushback and maintenance towing only. It is not meant for dispatch (operational) towing (see definitions in Section 3). Dispatch towing imposes greater loads on nose gears and structure due to additional passenger, cargo, and fuel loads.

The purpose of this specification is to provide airplane operators and tow vehicle manufacturers with: a General design and operating requirements pertinent to test and evaluation of towbarless tow vehicles. Specific design requirements are provided in ARP4852 and ARP4853. b Test and evaluation requirements. The results of these test evaluations will determine if the loads induced by the tow vehicle will exceed the design loads of the nose gear, or are within the aircraft manufacturer’s limits so that they do not affect the certified safe limit of the nose gear. The results of these test evaluations will also determine if a stability problem may occur during pushback and/or maintenance towing operations with the tested airplane/tow vehicle combination. This document specifies general test requirements and a test evaluation procedure for towbarless tow vehicles (TLTV) intended for pushback and maintenance towing only.
