Interface Protection - Ground Equipment to Aircraft
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) discusses damage to aircraft fuselages caused by ground equipment contact at servicing and recommends methods to be incorporated or considered in ground equipment design for protection against that damage.
This ARP, superseding former AIR 1558A originally published in 1978, specifies both passive devices and current state of the art active detection systems that should be incorporated or considered in GSE design in order to ensure aircraft protection against fuselage damage resulting from GSE interface. The change of document status from AIR to ARP is intended to take into account research findings on composite fuselage aircraft protection.
