Description:

SAE International is seeking individuals to join the Aerospace Propulsion 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. 

AE-1 Engine Accessory Installations Committee furthers the standardization of the design of interface connections for the installation of accessory equipment and correlates mutual problems involving the design and installation of engine mounted or driven accessory equipment.

AE-6 Starting Systems and Auxiliary Power Committee  devotes itself to aircraft engine starting by electrical, hydraulic, or pneumatic means using stored energy sources such as batteries, hydraulic accumulators, solid or liquid propellants, stored gas, or small gas turbine engines. Develops standards for aircraft starting systems.

 E-25 General Standards for Aerospace and Propulsion Systems committee addresses all facets of aerospace propulsion systems and components—design, maintenance, and in-service experience. These systems and components include aerospace propulsion engines and propellers including bolts, screws, nuts, washers, studs, rivets, pins, fluid fittings, gaskets, covers, O-rings, brackets, clamps, plugs, as well as design specifications for screw threads and fastener assembly requirements.

 E-30 Propulsion Ignition Systems Committee is responsible for developing standards related to aerospace ignition systems, their theory, design, performance and development.

 E-31 Aircraft Engine Gas and Particulate Emissions Measurement Committee addresses all facets of aircraft exhaust emissions measurement–tools, methods, processes, and equipment. It is responsible for standardizing measurement methods of emissions from aircraft, including isolated combustor systems. The group is comprised of four subcommittees dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements for aircraft exhaust emissions measurement.

 E-33 In Flight Propulsion Measurement Committee addresses all facets of in-flight thrust measurement and its uncertainty through the review of current industry methods and procedures (i.e., ASME, ISO, MIDAP, USAF, JANNAF, and NIST) and determines whether the need for the additional methods exist. The group is dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards and requirements for in-flight propulsion measurement. Participants in the SAE E-33 committee include OEMs, suppliers, processors, consulting firms, government, academia, and others across the aerospace and defense industries.

E-34 Propulsion Lubricants Committee addresses all facets of aerospace propulsion lubricants–development, maintenance, and in-service experience. This work includes lubricants used for gas turbine and privately owned jet engines, aircraft gearboxes and accessories as well as synthetic lubricants found on turbo propeller engines. The group is dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements for propulsion lubricants.

 E-36 Electronic Engine Controls Committee addresses all facets of electronic aircraft engine control systems and components—design, installation, maintenance, and in-service experience. These parts and systems include metering components and actuators and cockpit display, flight control, and diagnostic and health monitoring system communications and interfaces. The committee is dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements for electronic engine control systems.

 E-38 Aviation Piston Engine Fuels and Lubricants Committee primarily deals with aviation piston engine lubricant qualifications, but could be expanded to include fuel and/or additive qualifications at a later date. The committee's objective is to develop specification and qualification procedures that will satisfy the need of the military, FAA, engine manufacturers, fuels and lubricant suppliers and the general aviation community.

 EG-1 Aerospace Propulsion Systems Support Equipment Committee addresses all facets of aerospace propulsion support equipment-design, maintenance, and in-service experience. It focuses on support equipment and facilities related to gas turbine engine testing, balancing, engine accessory testing, inspection, packaging, handling, and transportability. High performance hand tools for aerospace applications are also addressed by EG-1.

 S-12 Helicopter Powerplant Committee addresses all facets of helicopter powerplants– design, maintenance, installation, and in-service experience. It provides guidance and standardization for better utilization of helicopter powerplants through studies of current practices in engine design, engine/airframe interface, and engine operation.

 S-15 Gas Turbine Perf Simulation Nomenclature and Interfaces Committee addresses all facets of engine performance monitoring/testing/analysis–tools, processes, and methodologies. It provides recommendations relative to the information contained in gas turbine engine performance data for airframers, the military, NASA, and also the format required to interface with these users' computers and programs.

 S-16 Turbine Engine Inlet Flow Distortion Committee develops uniform procedures for adoption by industry that will permit representation of inlet distortion and evaluation of its effect on propulsion systems’ stability and performance. Participants in the SAE S-16 committee include OEMs, suppliers, aircraft engine companies, consulting firms, government and others across the aerospace and defense industries.

 E-39 Unmanned Aircraft Propulsion Committee develop and maintain standards for unmanned air vehicle propulsion systems. Scope includes both chemical and electrical propulsion and the supporting systems, including but not limited to: engines, servo actuators, fuel, motors, controllers, batteries, fuel cells, wiring, connectors, fluid systems, instrumentation and sensors, power management, filler valves, filters, pumps, propellers, propeller balancing rigs, test stands, thrust measurement rigs, and flight management for energy efficient flight. The objectives of the E-39 Committee are to: -Categorize propulsion system types as they relate to risk profile and develop appropriate classifications and distinctions to support the categorization. -Coordinate standardization activities with industry, regulatory authorities, and other stakeholders to help prioritize efforts. -Develop SAE Technical Reports [Aerospace Standard (AS), Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP), and/or Aerospace Information Report (AIR)], to support this standardization effort. The UAS industry will benefit by understanding well-defined categories and system types, familiarization of accepted test methods and trusted measurements, and building upon industry best practices and specifications.
