Predicting Photometric Degradation of Exterior Aircraft Lights

A-20B Exterior Lighting Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • ARP6621
  • Current
Published 2019-12-09 by SAE International in United States

This Aerospace Recommended Practice provides guidance for designers and specifiers of aircraft exterior lighting. Typical causes of light degradation and methods of predicting performance degradation in the aircraft environment are given. Although the document considers only exterior lighting, many of the principles and methods discussed apply to interior or flight deck lighting as well.

Lighting Applications for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

A-20B Exterior Lighting Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • ARP6336
  • Current
Published 2019-12-05 by SAE International in United States

This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides technical recommendations for the lighting applications for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The technical content of this ARP discusses the unique trade-offs that are necessary to maintain commonality to the U.S. Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) for aerospace lighting. The recommendations set forth in this document are to aid in the design of Unmanned Aircraft (UA) lighting for the size of aircraft and operation for which the aircraft is intended. In addition, certain concepts of operation for which UASs are suited will require unique lighting solutions.

Measurement Procedures for Short Pulse Width Strobe Anticollision Lights

A-20B Exterior Lighting Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • ARP5029B
  • Current
Published 2019-07-30 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides the user with standardized guidelines for the measurement of effective intensity of short pulse width strobe anticollision lights for aircraft in the laboratory, in maintenance facilities, and in the field. A common source of traceability for calibration of the measurement systems, compensation for known causes of variation in light output such as the use of colored lenses, and recommendations which minimize sources of errors and uncertainties are included in this document. Estimates of uncertainty and error sources for each class of measurement are discussed.

Wing Inspection Lights – Design Criteria

A-20B Exterior Lighting Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • ARP4087C
  • Current
Published 2018-10-10 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Aerospace Recommend Practice (ARP) is intended to cover the external lights on fixed wing aircraft for illuminating the wing leading edge and engine nacelles and the upper surfaces of the wing. The addition of an ice detection system should be implemented when the areas to inspect are not visible from the aircraft cockpit. It is not intended that this Recommended Practice require the use of any particular light source such as Halogen, LED or other specific design of lamp.

Design and Maintenance Considerations for Aircraft Exterior Lighting Plastic Lenses

A-20B Exterior Lighting Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • ARP5637A
  • Current
Published 2017-09-13 by SAE International in United States
The information in this document is intended to apply to commercial jet transport category airplanes that incorporate plastic (polycarbonate or acrylic) lenses on exterior light assemblies, or are being considered for such an application as opposed to glass lens designs. Exterior lighting applications include position light assemblies, anticollision light asemblies, and landing light assemblies. However, much of the material provided herein is general in nature and is directly applicable to many aircraft categories including, but not limited to, helicopters, general aviation aircraft, and military aircraft.

Minimum Performance Standard for Anticollision Light Systems

A-20B Exterior Lighting Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • AS8017D
  • Current
Published 2017-08-24 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) establishes minimum performance standards for new equipment anticollision light systems. This Aerospace Standard defines minimum light intensity in terms of "effective intensity" as defined in paragraph 3.5 of this standard and specified vertical and horizontal directions about the longitudinal and vertical axis of the airplane. It will also define flash rate and color for the anticollision light system. It is not intended that this standard require the use of any particular light source such as Xenon, LED or any other specific design of lamp.
