This document contains guidance for designers, specifiers, regulatory personnel, purchaser, managers, and others who specify or use optical simulations of aircraft lights. All aircraft lighting will be considered - interior, flight deck, and exterior lighting.
Rationale: 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.
