Scope
Content
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).
Rationale
Content
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).
