SAE International is seeking individuals to join the Aerospace General Projects Systems Group's Committees to participate in the standards development process.
Please consider lending your expertise to one or more of the following areas of development by clicking the "apply now" button above.
G-10 Committee Aerospace Behavioral Engineering Technology (ABET-Steering Group) identifies issues associated with the interface of technology and the human operators in the airspace system and to generate recommended design practices that consider the strengths and limitations of these human operators. This Committee produces documentation of operator issues that need to be resolved and tracked in the form of Aerospace Research Documents as well as producing other SAE Documents and recommending their acceptance by the Aerospace Council through the General Projects Division.
G-18, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Aero Applications Committee addresses RFID smart label standards and specification for the aerospace industry, with a primary focus on part-marking for airborne, flyaway applications. RFID standards may address RFID chip design, test, maintenance, and in-service experience.
G-20, Airport Lighting Committee was formed in 2010 to address the possible adverse impact to current Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) operations by transitioning approach and airport surface lighting systems from incandescent lighting to Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). The committee is evaluating possible new technology solutions and supporting an existing FAA IR-LED program. It is tasked to produce a feasibility report providing findings and recommendations for a satisfactory solution.
E-1, Environmental Committee is chartered to address all facets of aerospace response to compliance with environmental requirements contained in rules, regulations law. Its goal is to serve as the primary technical consultative body in determining and consistent processes and tools for declaring, recording, reporting or certifying chemical, material, or emissions content of aerospace products to ensure consistent OEM and supplier compliance.
Avionics Electronics Corrosion Committee responsible for the development, coordination, publication, and maintenance of specifications and standards that document design and manufacturing best practices aimed at promoting the development, production, modification, fielding, and sustainment of corrosion resistant defense avionics and electronic products. The relevant specifications and standards are primarily intended for use in the defense industry, but may be applicable to other defense (e.g., ground vehicles, launchers) and commercial applications.
SAE CS, Commercial Space deals with standards for commercial reusable launch vehicles. As these vehicles vary significantly in both design and operational parameters, the majority of standards developed will provide performance requirements with wide application latitude to allow a great variety of design while maintaining safety.
G-25 Avionics/Electronics Corrosion Committee The A&ECC shall be responsible for the development, coordination, publication, and maintenance of specifications and standards that document design and manufacturing best practices aimed at promoting the development, production, modification, fielding, and sustainment of corrosion resistant defense avionics and electronic products. The relevant specifications and standards are primarily intended for use in the U.S. defense industry, but may be applicable to other defense (e.g., ground vehicles, launchers) and commercial industry applications.
G-26, Helicopter Hoists is responsible for developing and maintaining minimum performance standards for external cargo and search and rescue hoists. The committee works in conjunction with related bodies such as the Helicopter Association International (HAI), General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), Aviation Law Enforcement Association (ALEA), military agencies, and regulatory authorities such as FAA and EASA.
G-27, Lithium Battery Packaging, is responsible for the development and maintenance of minimum performance package standards that support the safe shipment of lithium batteries as cargo on aircraft. The committee works in conjunction with related bodies such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), International Air Transport Association (IATA), International Federation of Airline Pilots Association (IFALPA), International Coordination Council for Aerospace Industry Association (ICCAIA), European Association for Advanced Rechargeable Batteries (RECHARGE), Rechargeable Battery Association (PRBA), Battery Association of Japan (BAJ), defense agencies, and regulatory authorities.
G-28, Simulants for Impact and Ingestion Testing, is responsible for the development and maintenance of standards for simulating objects utilized in the development and certification of structures and engines for impact or ingestion. The committee works in conjunction with defense agencies and regulatory authorities to ensure that the standards developed regulatory requirements for certification testing.
G-30, Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operator Qualifications is responsible for the development and maintenance of supplementary qualification standards beyond the existing regulatory requirements of UAS operators, instructors, and remote pilots, for a variety of unmanned vehicle system types, sizes, operations, and missions. The Committee also will look to qualifications of the organizations that engage UAS.
G-31 Electronic Transactions for Aerospace The ETA committee is responsible for creating and maintaining SAE technical reports focusing on secure digital solutions to store, move, and access product lifecycle data and to streamline technical supply chain data to track, trace, and authenticate critical aircraft parts and materials.
G-32 Cyber Physical Systems Security- The SAE G-32 Cyber Physical Systems Security Committee will develop technical reports (Standards, Recommended Practices and Information Reports) covering a systems engineering approach to cyber physical systems security that includes analysis of the system operating environment defined by the operational, functional, and architectural systems engineering elements.
G-34 Artificial Intelligence in Aviation- The G-34, Artifical Intelligence in Aviation, Committee is responsible for creating and maintaining SAE Technical Reports (i.e. Aerospace Information Reports, Aerospace Recommended Practices, and Aerospace Standards) on the implementation and certification aspects relate to AI technologies inclusive of any on or off-board system for the safe operation of aerospace systems and aerospace vehicles.
G-35 Modeling, Simulation, Training for Emerging Aviation Technologies will develop industry consensus standards for aircraft including new market piloted (manned) aircraft and remotely piloted vehicles, leading to autonomously operated aircraft in support of certification regulations. The Committee will develop standards for implementation across the stakeholder community to support technology development and certification of aircraft, simulator devices, airmen, and operators. The committee will also explore the applicability of modelling for qualification and certification using simulation for flight testing. Anticipated subcommittees include: • Certification and Testing • Modelling and Simulation • Training and personnel certification.
G-36 Sustainable Waste Management will develop technical reports including standards and best practices for products, processes, and services in global commercial and business aviation, airports, and flight kitchens. G-36 intends to develop a framework to ensure standards align with a waste management structure based on type identification, which considers recyclable, compostable, reusable, semi-reusable and circular products, product groups, and materials. The Committee intends to initially focus on single-use catering items.
