New Specification for Indirect Control Systems for Aircraft Trajectory

1. Scope

This international industry-consensus specification addresses the design of indirect control systems (e.g., “fly-by-wire” systems) that provide aircraft trajectory control. The information herein was originally created by focusing on Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 Normal Category aeroplanes; however, the content may be more broadly applicable, and the application thereof should not be unduly limited.


FBW; FBW System


This will become part of the larger ASTM Part 23 library. There is currently no central location to capture the results of the disparate fly-by-wire efforts underway; this specification is intended to consolidate this information into a usable format.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
