Scope
Content
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.
Rationale
Content
This document establishes minimum performance levels for aircraft anticollision light systems including chromaticity and light intensity in support of TSO and system certifications. Information contained herein has been expanded from AS8017B in the areas of measurement conditions, lumen maintenance, and the inclusion of specific information relative to the use of Light Emitting Diode source technology. It also provides minimum requirements for night operation not addressed in CFR Title 14. Anticollision lights shall be capable of daytime operation as well.
