This document specifies the general functional and performance requirements for a self-propelled, boom type aerial device equipped with an aircraft deicing/anti-icing fluid (ADF) spraying system. The unit shall be highly maneuverable for deicing and anti-icing all exterior surfaces of wide-body and narrow-body aircraft, e.g., B747 and DC9. The vehicle shall be suitable for day and night operations. The vehicle and all associated systems shall operate satisfactorily under the temperature conditions between -40 and 50 °C (-40 and 122 °F) and in continuous humidity of up to 100%.
It is not within the scope of this document to specify a comprehensive set of technical design criteria for aircraft deicing/anti-icing vehicles but only those relating to functional and performance requirements.
