AMS AM committee participates in relevant AM standards coordination events and appoint representatives to liaise with relevant standards development organizations involved in aerospace additive manufacturing.

AMS B Finishes Processes and Fluids Committee prepares, coordinates, and revises documents related to processing technology, such as plating, brazing, coatings and compounds, through the participation of process suppliers, users, and interested government agencies. Committee activities shall provide a forum for the cooperative interchange of ideas and experience of the participants, resulting in the publication of specifications that embody sound, established aerospace industry practices and requirements to serve the suppliers and customers of aerospace processes.

AMS D Nonferrous Alloys Committee prepares, coordinates, and revises documents related to nonferrous metals technology, such as aluminum, magnesium, and copper, through the participation of metals suppliers, users, and interested government agencies. Committee activities shall provide a forum for the cooperative interchange of ideas and experience of the participants, resulting in the publication of specifications that embody sound, established aerospace industry practices and requirements to serve the suppliers and customers of aerospace materials.

AMS E Carbon and Low Alloy Steels Committee prepares, coordinates, and revises documents related to nonferrous metals technology, such as aluminum, magnesium, and copper, through the participation of metals suppliers, users, and interested government agencies. Committee activities shall provide a forum for the cooperative interchange of ideas and experience of the participants, resulting in the publication of specifications that embody sound, established aerospace industry practices and requirements to serve the suppliers and customers of aerospace materials.

AMS F Corrosion Heat Resistant Alloys Committee prepares, coordinates, and revises documents related to corrosion and heat resistant steels and alloys and specialty steels and alloys technology, such as stainless steels and nickel and base alloys, through the participation of metals suppliers, users, and interested government agencies. Committee activities shall provide a forum for the cooperative interchange of ideas and experience of the participants, resulting in the publication of specifications that embody sound, established aerospace industry practices and requirements to serve the suppliers and customers of aerospace materials.

 AMS G Titanium and Refractory Metals Committee is responsible for preparation, revision, review and approval of documents related to aerospace application of these materials. Included are titanium, beryllium, and refractory metallic such as molybdenum, tantalum, and columbium. The committee provides a forum for interchange of experience and ideas among industry representatives, both suppliers and users, along with interested government agencies, to ensure the utility, proper technical content, and industry acceptance of published documents.

ASEC Aerospace Surface Enhancement Committee provides the aerospace industry and government agencies, in the public interest, with the technical benefits which accrue from cooperative activities and through the synergistic interchange of ideas and experience of members. ASEC was created to focus on surface enhancement technologies including shot peening, laser peening, roller burnishing and other surface treatments.

 AMS CE Elastomers Committee maintains Aerospace Materials Specifications (AMS), Aerospace Recommended Practices (ARP), Aerospace Information Reports (AIR) and Aerospace Standards (AS) on elastomeric materials. AMS-CE, which reports to the Aerospace Materials Division, coordinates and maintains liaison with industry, government and other standardization groups on elastomeric materials. A significant part of this committee is concerned with elastomeric fluid sealing materials, their applications, material development, testing, quality, design parameters and design practices. 

AMS P Polymeric Materials Committee writes and revises Aerospace Material Specifications (AMS), Metric Aerospace Materials Specifications (MAM), Aerospace Recommended Practices (ARP), and Aerospace Information Reports (AIR) for composite material technology as assigned to the committee.

AMS P17 Polymer Matrix Composites Committee is responsible for the developing and maintaining of material specifications and other SAE technical reports for composite materials, including prepregs, reinforcing fibers and fabrics, matrix resins, adhesives, and core materials. The committee works in conjunction with related bodies such as the Composite Materials Handbook -17 (CMH-17), ASTM Committee D30 on Composite Materials, the National Center for Advanced Materials Performance (NCAMP), the Performance Review Institute (PRI), and regulatory authorities such as FAA and EASA.

AMS CACRC Commercial Aircraft Composite Repair Committee develops and improves maintenance, inspection and repair of commercial aircraft composite structure and components. The seven CACRC task groups are: Repair Materials, Repair Techniques, Analytical Repair Techniques, Design, Inspection, Training and Airline Inspection & Repair Conditions.

AMS G8 Aerospace Organic Coatings Committee provides a forum to address common concerns such as application, corrosion, environmental compliance, material compatibility, OSHA requirements, performance requirements, specifications, surface preparation, and test methods. The three primary areas of activity are: 1. Writing and Maintaining Specifications 2. Cooperative Testing 3. Information Sharing and Networking

AMS G9 Aerospace Sealing Committee primarily is concerned with the sealing of aerospace vehicles for fluid containment and environmental protection by the use of sealants which are applied and cured to solid materials or are permanently mastic. This includes the preparation of sealant material specifications, aerospace recommended practices for sealing processes and related activities. Examples of applications are the sealing of integral fuel tanks, fuel cell cavities, crew compartments and passenger areas, access doors, fasteners, avionics compartments, windshields, firewalls, etc. The committee shall also be involved with elastomeric fuel cells. The committee shall address the effort on the environment of cured and uncured sealant materials and their containers and recommend approved practices for their proper disposal. The committee shall participate in discussions on various sealing materials and processes and provide comments and views on relevant research and development efforts.

 AMS J Aircraft Maintenance Chemicals and Materials Committee complies with major airframe and engine manufacturer's basic requirements for aircraft maintenance and chemical materials, such as aircraft cleaners, disinfectants and paint removers. AMS-J coordinates with airline requirements to utilize the knowledge, experience and skills of engineers and other professionals in preparing documents and initiating workshop discussions. These documents conform to established practices in the aerospace industry. This will provide aerospace, government agencies and other industries with technical benefits derived from cooperative contributions from AMS-J members.

 AMS M Aerospace Greases Committee develops and maintains documents related to grease, and anti-seize compounds. AMS-M advances the knowledge and techniques associated with aerospace greases.

AMS K Non Destructive Methods and Processes Committee prepares, coordinates, and revises documents related to nondestructive testing technology, such as fluorescent penetrant, magnetic particle, X-ray, ultrasonic, and eddy current, through the participation of manufacturer's suppliers, users, and interested government agencies. Committee activities shall provide a forum for the cooperative interchange of ideas and experience of the participants, resulting in the publication of specifications that embody sound, established aerospace industry practices, and requirements to serve the suppliers and customers of aerospace materials.
