SAE AS 1677C:2002 pdf download General Requirements for Noncertified Cargo/Baggage Containers
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) covers the requirements for lower deck containers in wide bodyand standard body aircraft which do not require airworthiness certification under the condition ofcompartment restraint and/or; where applicable according to aircraft type,NAS3610 equivalentbaseplate-restraint for these containers.
NOTE: IATA 50/0,”Requirements for interlining of ULDs”, should also be taken into account when designing and making equipment.
1.1 Purpose:
This document provides dimensional, structural, and environmental criteria for cargo/baggage containers tailored to meet the lower deck configuration of the wide and standard body aircraft. SeeAlR1869 for information relative to lower deck container configurations. The minimum essentialcriteria are identified by the use of the key word “shall”. Recommended criteria are identified by theuse of the key word “”should” , and while not mandatory, are considered to be of primary importance inproviding serviceable, economical, and practical air transport containers.Deviation from recommended criteria should occur only after careful consideration, extensive testing, and thoroughservice evaluation have shown alternate methods to be satisfactory.
The following publications form a part of this document to the extent specified herein. The latest issueof SAE publications shall apply. The applicable issue of other publications shall be the issue in effecton the date of the purchase order. ln the event of conflict between the text of this document andreferences cited herein, the text of this document takes precedence. Nothing in this document,however, supersedes applicable laws and regulations unless a specific exemption has been obtained.
