(R) Wiring Aerospace Vehicle
|Publication Date:||1 August 2019|
This specification covers all aspects in Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems (EWIS) from the selection through installation of wiring and wiring devices and optical cabling and termination devices used in aerospace vehicles. Aerospace vehicles include manned and unmanned airplanes, helicopters, lighter-than-air vehicles, missiles, and external pods.
This specification establishes design requirements guidance for wiring and optical cable installation in aerospace vehicles. Although many of the requirements are written as mandatory and shall be considered as such, there is also considerable material which is intended to denote optional, preferential or guidance type requirements. In interpreting the material contained herein, it is intended that the philosophy of the entire document be considered for the wiring of each new type of vehicle. This philosophy is safety of the personnel, safety of the vehicle, satisfactory performance and reliability of the vehicle and ease of maintenance, and service life all at the least cost to the operator. The intent of this document will be fulfilled by tailoring the requirements in each new type or class of aerospace vehicle designed, to the proper application. ARP/AIR documents listed in this specification are for reference only. Any reference in this document to Military, Air Force, Navy, Army, or Coast Guard refers to systems managed or procured by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) or the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
This document does not apply to wiring inside of airborne electronic equipment, but shall apply to wiring externally attached to such equipment.

The wiring requirements covered by this specification are intended for use in the selection and installation of wiring and accessories for the interconnection of electrical and electronic equipment in aerospace vehicles. The requirements specified herein are applicable to development, prototype, production, rework, and modification wiring, on new or in-service vehicles. All wiring that is completely internal to electrical and electronic equipment should be in accordance with the applicable equipment specifications rather than this specification.View Less
