This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) defines the minimum performance requirements and test parameters for air cargo unit load devices requiring approval of airworthiness for installation in an approved aircraft cargo compartment and restraint system that complies with the cargo restraint and occupant protection requirements of Title 14 CFR Part 25, except for the 9.0g forward ultimate inertia force of § 25.561 (b)(3)(ii).
After publication of AS36100 [2005-02], application studies evidenced ULD designs could be affected by cumulating the worst (main deck) ultimate load conditions with the worst (lower deck) testing restraint conditions, at a significant risk of needlessly increasing ULD weight. The present revision A, proposed for TSO C90d reference, remedies this difficulty by introducing two separate ULD configurations and testing restraint conditions for each of concerned sizes A, B and M, thus allowing for distinct approval of lower deck or main deck units, as was the case with the predecessor reference document NAS 3610 (TSO C90c).

Committee AGE-2 reports to the Aerospace General Projects Division. The main, or governing committee, AGE-2, is composed of the most experienced members, mainly from the airlines, airframe manufacturers, and support equipment manufacturers, to provide leadership and guidance for the Membership to implement the work is drawn with reasonable balance from airlines, airframe manufacturers, support equipment manufacturers, and others with special aircraft related expertise. Members serve based on their knowledge, expertise, and experience and not as agents or representatives of any organization.
* 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.
