Control Measures for Laser Safety in the Navigable Airspace

G10T Laser Safety Hazards Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • ARP5572A
  • Current
Published 2020-03-10 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides information and guidance for the control of hazardous laser energy in the navigable airspace. This ARP does not address techniqies that pilots can apply to mitigate laser illuminations during a critical phase of flight. Such mitigation strategies are described in ARP6378.

Enhancing Flight Path Separation to Reduce Bird Strikes with Ultraviolet Radiation

SAE International Journal of Aerospace

Lite Enterprises, USA-Donald J. Ronning
  • Journal Article
  • 01-12-02-0005
Published 2019-10-29 by SAE International in United States
In the autumn of 2018, a pilot study using a prototype (PAR46 size) landing light that incorporated ultraviolet light emitting diodes (UVLEDs) was attached on a one-quarter scale remote controlled (RC) plane. The plane was flown in the direction of birds to measure their behavioral response to the approaching plane with landing lights either turned ON or OFF. Data were collected from multiple sources including cameras on the plane and the ground and a bird radar unit to measure the flight path separation between the plane and the birds. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of using UVLEDs integrated into a PAR46 landing light to trigger bird avoidance behavioral responses that would increase flight path separation to reduce the incidence of bird strikes. The findings showed the mean distance of the avoidance response was statistically significantly greater when the PAR46 landing light with UVLEDs was turned ON versus OFF. Field test data were used to create a three-variable model based upon recent neuroscience research corresponding to visual image capture, retinal neural…

Introduction to Automated Vehicle Safety: Multi-Agent, Functional, SOTIF, and Cybersecurity

  • Professional Development
  • C1950
Published 2019-05-29

Fatal accidents involving automated vehicles (AVs) have made it clear that safety is paramount to their acceptance, testing, verification, validation, and deployment. In fact, safety has been ranked as the number one concern for the acceptance and adoption of automated vehicles, and understandably so, since safety has some of the most complex requirements in the development of such vehicles. However, there are many misconceptions involving safety and the concept of safety as applied to automated vehicles.

A Guide to Collaborative Robot Safety

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34385
Published 2019-05-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

The ability of collaborative robots to share tasks with humans and flexibly adapt to new requirements can provide high returns on investment in a wide variety of industrial applications. Manufacturers employ these robots to reap the benefits of integrated safety features that allow them to work with or close by humans and boost productivity for a wide variety of repetitive tasks.

A Dynamic Fault Tree Approach for Time-Dependent Logical Modeling of Autonomous Flight Systems

Cobham Mission Systems Inc-John Wang
Published 2019-03-19 by SAE International in United States
This paper addresses the urgent need for adequate methodologies to use in analyzing autonomous flight systems, including Unmanned Aircraft. These systems are inherently dynamic and require analysis that is explicitly time dependent. Autonomous flight systems are becoming more commonly used, especially for Part 23 aircraft including Business (Corporate) and Regional Jets or Unmanned Aircraft deployed in hazardous environment/situation. Such systems are expected to make their own decisions under uncertain conditions caused by potential system structure changes when entering a new flight phase or switching to a new system configuration due to system degradation or failure(s) [1]. This paper highlights significant modeling errors that can arise in analyzing dynamic scenarios where these time dependencies are ignored. Model-based solutions are provided by incorporating a time-dependent algebraic formalism into Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) and Dependency Diagram (DD) with updated descriptions in SAE ARP4761A and ARP4754B (Note: These are currently under development). A Dynamic Goal Tree (or alternatively, a Dynamic Dependency Diagram) provides an effective implementation of the time-dependent logic for dynamic system analysis analyzing autonomous flight systems which…

Characterizing the Safety of Automated Vehicles: Book 1 - Automated Vehicle Safety

Kettering Univ.-Juan R. Pimentel
  • Progress In Technology (PT)
  • PT-203
Published 2019-03-07 by SAE International in United States
Safety has been ranked as the number one concern for the acceptance and adoption of automated vehicles since safety has driven some of the most complex requirements in the development of self-driving vehicles. Recent fatal accidents involving self-driving vehicles have uncovered issues in the way some automated vehicle companies approach the design, testing, verification, and validation of their products. Traditionally, automotive safety follows functional safety concepts as detailed in the standard ISO 26262. However, automated driving safety goes beyond this standard and includes other safety concepts such as safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF) and multi-agent safety. Characterizing the Safety of Automated Vehicles addresses the concept of safety for self-driving vehicles through the inclusion of 10 recent and highly relevent SAE technical papers. Topics that these papers feature include functional safety, SOTIF, and multi-agent safety. As the first title in a series on automated vehicle safety, each will contain introductory content by the Editor with 10 SAE technical papers specifically chosen to illuminate the specific safety topic of that book.
