This user’s manual covers the instrumented arm for the Hybrid III 5th Percentile Small Female dummy as well as the SID –IIs dummy. It is intended for technicians and engineers who have an interest in assessing arm injury from the use of frontal and side impact airbags. It covers the construction, disassembly and reassembly, available instrumentation, and segment masses.
Document is being updated from Engineering Aid 36 to a “J” document.

Dummy Testing and Equipment Committee
The Dummy Testing Equipment Committee (DTEC) is a group of experts with experience in the area of certification and handling of Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATD), more commonly known as crash test dummies, and equipment related to ATD. The DTEC seeks to standardize the use and certification of ATD so that test data are both repeatable and reproducible.
* 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.
