This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) specifies minimum performance requirements for primary pressure altimeter systems other than air data computers.
This document covers altimeter systems that measure and display altitude as a function of atmospheric pressure. The pressure transducer may be contained within the instrument display case or located remotely. Requirements for air data computers are specified in AS8002. Some requirements for nontransducing servoed altitude indicators are included in AS791.
The instrument system specified herein does not include aircraft pressure lines. Unless otherwise specified, whenever the term “instrument” is used, it is to be understood to be the complete system of pressure transducer components, any auxiliary equipment, and display components.
The test procedures specified herein apply specifically to analog type instruments. Digital instruments or automatic test instrumentation may require other test procedures. Such differing procedures shall be justified prior to use.
A general update of AS8009 was requested. areas that were investigated included making the testing requirement of as8009 compatible with those of appendix E(6)(1) of Far 43, providing cold weather correction, referencing both feet and meters and updating the environmental section to call out DO-160D.

* 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.
