Component Standard for Airbag Systems Installed in Civil Rotorcraft, Transport Aircraft, and General Aviation Aircraft
This Aerospace Standard specifies the minimum component performance requirements and test procedures for airbag systems in civil rotorcraft, transport aircraft and general aviation aircraft. It is intended to establish a minimum level of performance that can be called upon by the system designer.
Only core component technical requirements are addressed in this document. Installation specific issues, those that cannot be evaluated using a generic seat or interior are not included in this document. Installation performance specific requirements, which are dependent on specific seat or interior dimensions, are addressed in the SAE AS6466 document, titled "Installation Performance Standard for Airbag Systems Installed in Civil Rotorcraft, Transport Aircraft, and General Aviation Aircraft ".
Compliance with this standard alone does not assure adequate performance of the airbag system under normal and emergency conditions. Such performance requires consideration of factors beyond the scope of this standard, and must be demonstrated by a system evaluation procedure that includes the seat, the occupant, the specific restraint installation, and the cabin interior configuration.
