SAE, the Society of Automotive Engineers, is a member-driven organization of more than 69,000 professionals in 90 countries around the world who share a common interest in advancing mobility technology to serve humanity. SAE members design, manufacture, test, market, and maintain self-propelled land, sea, air and space vehicles, their components and systems. They include engineers from every technical discipline and the professionals who work closely with them to improve vehicle efficiency, performance, reliability and safety. Members are employed in the automotive and aerospace industry, as well as in government and education. Many are leaders in their fields who serve as key resources for the SAE engineering community.
The SAE Technical Standards Board is the world's largest developer of technical standards for land, sea, air and space vehicles. These standards are an agreement on form, fit and function, enabling engineers from every discipline, industry and country to talk to each other in a common language. Thousands of volunteers serve on SAE technical committees, developing and updating standards vital to government and industry. These guidelines cover engine rating, fuels, lubricants, hoses and fittings, fuel economy, air cargo and ground handling equipment, roll-over protective structures and much more. Each year SAE publishes and distributes thousands of mobility standards, technical meeting presentations, reference books and special publications. Information from these and many other sources is added to the comprehensive SAE database system.
