The SAE G-15 Airport Snow & Ice Control Equipment committee addresses all facets of airport snow and ice removal equipment–design, maintenance, operation, and in-service experience. It was formed in response to an FAA request in 1999 for a technical committee to prepare industry specifications for airport snow and ice control equipment and to provide rapid response to technological changes occurring in the aviation industry. The group is dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements for airport snow and ice control systems.
Participants in the SAE G-15 committee include Airport Operators, USAF, suppliers, consulting firms, federal government regulators and others across the aerospace and defense industries.
