Downloadable datasets availableAnnotation ability available
MIL-STD-1290, 14 CFR 27.952, and 14 CFR 29.952 provide crash resistant fuel system design and test criteria that significantly minimize fuel leaks and occurrence of post-crash fire in survivable impacts. This document does not change and does not authorize changes in or deviations from MIL-Standard or regulatory requirements. This document provides guidance for the design, performance, and test criteria for self-sealing breakaway valves.
This document has been revised extensively for the following:
Add requirements for specification and testing at all operating temperatures
General revision to remove/replace references to cancelled standards and to improve the document readability
Convert “shall” into “should/is/are/may/will” as appropriate
Add reference to ARP8615 for design and verification requirements

* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
