A-6B1 Hydraulic Servo Actuation Committee
The recommended practice describes a design standard that defines the maximum recommended voltage drop of the starting motor main circuits, as well as control system circuits, for 12/24-V starter systems. The battery technologies used in developing this document include the flooded lead acid, gel cell, and AGM.

AS-4JAUS Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems Committee
SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice ARP1533 is a procedure for the analysis and evaluation of the measured composition of the exhaust gas from aircraft engines. Measurements of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, total hydrocarbon, and the oxides of nitrogen are used to deduce emission indices, fuel-air ratio, combustion efficiency, and exhaust gas thermodynamic properties. The emission indices (EI) are the parameters of critical interest to the engine developers and the atmospheric emissions regulatory agencies because they relate engine performance to environmental impact. While this procedure is intended to guide the analysis and evaluation of the emissions from aircraft gas turbine engines (burning conventional hydrocarbon based liquid fuels), the methodology may be applied to the analysis of the exhaust products of any hydrocarbon/air combustor. Some successful applications include: Aircraft engine combustor development rig tests (aviation jet fueled) Stationary source combustor
