Optical Simulation and Analysis for Aircraft Lighting
This document contains guidance for designers, specifiers, regulatory personnel, purchasers, managers, and others who specify or use optical simulations of aircraft lights. All aircraft lighting will be considered interior, flight deck, and exterior lighting. Guidance on standard methods of analysis and presentation of data will be provided. Although this document concentrates on lighting, many of the principles covered will be helpful in other types of optical simulation, such as for displays, non-visible radiation, etc.
Nearly every aircraft light now developed is first simulated using optical software. This document will provide guidance on how to create useful, accurate optical simulations. Guidance on how to present and interpret the results of such simulations will also be provided.
