Aeronautical Design Standard (ADS) Handbook- Airworthiness Qualification and Verification Guidance for Electro-optical and Sensor Systems

Keywords aeronautical design standard airworthiness qualification airworthiness verification guidance for electro-optical and sensor systems

1.0 SCOPE.
This document establishes the guidance for airworthiness qualification and discusses the methods of verification for Electro-Optical (EO) and Sensor Systems (SS), mission sensor group, and any other targeting/pilotage systems installed on U.S. Army aircraft. It also establishes the guidance for ancillary equipment, including displays, lasers and targeting systems. The sensors and system-related EO equipment are collectively referred to as a “sensor system” in this document. A combination of analyses and testing is used to verify the design, installation and operation of the sensor system and to support airworthiness qualification.
