The New Revision G for the widely used RTCA DO-160 on Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment has just been released. The document is available for purchase from Document Center Inc.
DO-160G provides standard procedures and environmental test criteria for testing airborne equipment for a wide range of aircraft, from light, general aviation planes and helicopters to “jumbo jets” and SST’s.
The standard covers tests for vibration, power input, radio frequency susceptibility, lightning and electrostatic discharge. It has 26 sections and three appendices. The new edition replaces RTCA-DO-160F and all other previous editions. However, the obsolete revisions are available from Document Center Inc. if required.
As a measure of the wide acceptance of the document, it is coordinated with EUROCAE, with EUROCAE/ED-14G being identical to the RTCA/DO-160G. And it is also adopted as the international standard ISO-7137.
