The SAE E-40 Committee will develop technical reports (Aerospace Standards, Aerospace Recommended Practices and Information Reports) covering electrified propulsion for aircraft with a payload weight above 150lb / 70KG. The committee will recommend standardized nomenclature, define applicable terms and fundamental architectures, and address considerations for performance (including endurance), safety, high voltage/high power, aircraft integration, components and interfaces within and between propulsion system and aircraft equipment.
In addition, the E-40 committee will provide recommendations to and collaborate with the SAE Electric Aircraft Steering Group and other relevant standards committees to develop necessary standards, recommended practices and information reports in related areas, including but not limited to:
Electromagnetic Compatibility (AE-4), Lightning Effects (AE-2), Engine Health Management (E-32), Ground Support Equipment (AGE-3), Distributed Propulsion, Maintenance (G-11), Aircraft Operations, Cockpit Indicators (A-4), Electrical Wiring & Interconnect Systems (AE-8), Energy Storage (AE-7B,D), Electronic Engine Controls (E-36) and Electrical Materials (AE-9).
