This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides recommendations for the function, design, construction, and testing of an on-aircraft Brake Temperature Monitoring System (BTMS), sometimes referred to as a Brake Temperature Indication System (BTIS).
NOTE: This ARP does not address:
Cockpit ergonomics and Aircraft operating procedures.
Various handheld methods of temperature sensing or readouts, as these are not associated with transport aircraft during normal operation.
Temperature sensitive paints as a means to indicate exceedance of a landing gear axle temperature threshold due to brake temperature.
There is a need for a document to provide additional recommendations for future brake temperature monitoring systems and equipment when aircraft brake temperatures and a dispatch indication are required. This is because the previous document covering Aircraft Brake Temperature Monitoring Systems (AS1145) has been stabilized. This ARP document meets this need.
