Description:

SAE International is seeking individuals to join the Aircraft Systems Group Committees to participate in the standards development process.

Please consider lending your expertise to one or more of the following areas of development by clicking the "apply now" button above. 

A-4 Aircraft Instruments Committee addresses all facets of aircraft instruments–design, manufacture, operation, maintenance, and in-service experience. It is responsible for mechanical, electromechanical, and electronic cockpit instrumentation standards applicable to all civil aircraft, with emphasis on minimum performance standards intended for reference in the FAA Technical Standard Orders (TSO).

 A-5 Aerospace Landing Gear Systems Committee addresses all facets of aerospace landing gears: design, maintenance and in-service experience. It publishes Aerospace Information Reports (AIR), Aerospace Recommended Practices (ARP) and Aerospace Standards (AS) for use throughout the industry. These documents provide current design information, recommended design practices and design standards for landing gear systems. A-5 also provides a forum for presentations on current technology and technical interchanges needed by each engineer to stay abreast of a fast moving field.

 A-10 Aircraft Oxygen Equipment Committee develops standards and practices in the design and information compiled from users, equipment suppliers, aircraft manufacturers, regulatory agencies and medical groups in the aeronautical oxygen field.

 A-20 Aircraft Lighting Steering Committee provides a forum for the development of aerospace standards in aircraft lighting that will fulfill the needs and requirements of operation control and utility. The scope includes both interior and exterior lighting.

 A-21 Aircraft Noise Measure Noise Aviation Emission Modeling Committee addresses all facets of aircraft noise measurement–processes, testing, modeling, and analysis. It is responsible for standards and engineering activities related to interior and exterior noise associated with aircraft and their environments. The group coordinates aircraft noise measurement efforts with a variety of organizations internationally, such as ICAO, AIRMOD, CAA, FAA, U.S. DOT, NASA, MIT, and U.S. and European rotorcraft forums.

 AC-9 Aircraft Environmental Systems Committee addresses all facets of aircraft environmental systems–design, maintenance, and in-service experience. It is responsible for furthering the advancement of technology related to the research, design, test and utilization of aircraft environmental systems. The group develops and updates standards, recommended practices, and information reports contributing to the quality, economy, and safety of commercial and military aircraft.

 AC-9C Aircraft Icing Technology Committee addresses all facets of aircraft inflight icing including ice protection and detection technologies and systems–design, meteorological and operational environments, maintenance, regulation, certification, and in-service experience. It is responsible for furthering the advancement of technology related to the research, design, evaluation, testing and utilization of aircraft ice protection systems. The group actively participates in the international exchange of information related to aircraft in-flight icing, characterization of the icing environment and furthering the development tools used in evaluating ice protection systems (i.e. icing wind tunnels, ice accretion codes, ice shape assessment methods, etc.), and the preparation and review of technical reports in this technology area.

 AC-9M Cabin Air Measurement Committee is a technical committee in SAE’s Aircraft Systems Group responsible for creating and maintaining technical standards for the measurement of constituents in the air within the cockpit and passenger compartments of fixed wing aircraft.  The initial project will focus on developing a technical standard covering portable and/or fixed installation sensors for maintenance to quantitatively measure fumes and contaminants that could enter the cabin space.  Additionally, the committee will develop guidance material for training, interpretation of results and troubleshooting. 

 S-7 Flight Deck Handling Qualities Stds for Trans Aircraft  Committee addresses flight deck man-machine interface design and operation as well as aircraft handling qualities, with the objective of improving operational efficiencies and safety. Issues focused on by the committee include:

  •  Flight deck layout and facilities

  • External vision from the flight deck

  • Flight deck panels, controls, displays and abbreviations

  • Operational functions and characteristics of equipment controlled from the flight deck

  • Transport aircraft handling qualities

 S-9 Cabin Safety Provisions Committee addresses all facets of aircraft cabin safety–design, maintenance, and in-service experience. It is responsible for transport category aircraft cabin interiors and furnishings’ standards development that will foster efficient operation during normal use and simultaneously prevent or minimize injury or loss of life during an aircraft accident or emergency situations. The group is comprised of four committees dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements for cabin safety systems.

 Aircraft SEAT Committee addresses all facets of aircraft seats–design, maintenance, and in-service experience. The group is responsible for aircraft seat systems design and performance standards development. Participants in the SAE SEAT committee include OEMs, suppliers, aircraft seat equipment companies, consulting firms, government and others across the aerospace and defense industries.

ACBG Airframe Control Bearings Group Committee addresses all facets of aerospace bearings design, maintenance, testing, and in-service experience. It deals with present and future airframe control systems, bearings, and associated components, such as flight control actuation systems, rotary and variable sweep wing articulation systems, and induction air control systems. The committee’s main purpose is to determine performance and design needs, decide the type of tests required, and develop standard test methods. The group is comprised to two subcommittees dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements for airframe control bearings.
