Mobility, Towed Aerospace Ground Equipment, General Requirements For
|Publication Date:||1 August 1997|
This specification covers general design and performance requirements for the mobility of towed ground support equipment. The complete mobility requirements for an item of towed aerospace ground equipment not specified herein shall be specified in the individual equipment specification (see 6.4).
Applicability: The requirements and tests contained in this specification apply to the mobility aspects of all manually propelled and towed items of ground equipment. They represent the minimum acceptable mobility features. When it is known that the equipment will require mobility features that are more severe than the mobility features stated herein, the mobility features may be modified in the individual equipment specification.
General application: Prior to use of this specification, the required operating conditions of the item of equipment under consideration should be reviewed to determine which mobility requirements relate directly to the equipment. The tests specified herein may be supplemented to meet the requirements of the individual item of equipment. These tests are considered minimal and should not be reduced in scope. This is considered a performance specification with limited design parameters.
