This standard defines the design requirements that shall be incorporated into designs of new National Airspace System (NAS) facilities and modifications to existing NAS facilities.
Purpose. This standard provides guidelines for the design of all new facilities and modernization and expansion of existing NAS facilities including buildings, structures, support equipment, surrounding grounds and site utilities. Specific technical requirements for these facilities will be defined in the subsystem or projet specification and in the facility development specification for each subsystem or project. This standard is primarily for use in the development of national standard designs and may be used for site adaptation by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Washington in preparation of the facilities requirements portions of the NAS project specifications and shall be used by architects and engineers in the design of new facilities and modifications of existing NAS facilities.
