Scope
Content
This document outlines the development process and makes recommendations for total antiskid/aircraft systems compatibility. These recommendations encompass all aircraft systems that may affect antiskid brake control and performance. It focuses on recommended practices specific to antiskid and its integration with the aircraft, as opposed to more generic practices recommended for all aircraft systems and components. It defers to the documents listed in Section 2 for generic aerospace best practices and requirements. The documents listed below are the major drivers in antiskid/aircraft integration:
  1. 1
    ARP4754
  2. 2
    ARP4761
  3. 3
    RTCA DO-178
  4. 4
    RTCA DO-254
  5. 5
    RTCA DO-160
  6. 6
    ARP490
  7. 7
    ARP1383
  8. 8
    ARP1598
In addition, it covers design and operational goals, general theory, and functions, which should be considered by the aircraft brake system engineer to attain the most effective skid control performance, as well as methods of determining and evaluating antiskid system performance.
For definitions of terms used herein, see Section 7.
Rationale
Content
One of the major prerequisites for highly efficient antiskid control is fast braking system response. Earlier versions of the document do have language recommending fast response, but it is not explicit enough or detailed enough. This has become an issue as airframe manufacturers in multiple programs have designed systems with inadequate response for good, much less excellent, antiskid control. There is a need to move consideration of braking system response into the earliest stages of airplane development programs to avoid finding out that response is slow after designs have been frozen and hardware has been produced. In general, there is a need to include desired antiskid performance in all aspects of aircraft design, but this revision will focus primarily on braking system response.
ARP1070E has been reaffirmed to comply with the SAE Five-Year Review policy.
