Description / Abstract:

This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) establishes the minimum standard requirements for Message Boards (MBs) at Deicing Facilities. This standard also defines the minimum content and appearance of the display, functional capabilities, design requirements, and inspection and testing requirements.

The Design and Operation of Aircraft Deicing Facilities are covered by ARP4902.

Standards for the deicing facility management system are outside the scope of this document.

Equipment Classification:

The MB system may incorporate additional features not addressed in this standard (such as the ability to display quantity of de/anti-icing fluids used). The incorporation of such additional features, not considered essential for system functioning, shall not compromise the system's intended purpose.

Field of Application:

Applicable Airplanes: The MB system is applicable to all classes of aircraft using civil deicing facilities.

Applicable Airports: The message board system shall be compatible with airport ground operations operating under ICAO Standards.

System Elements:

Message Boards: MBs display variable information based on an interface with the Deicing Facility control station including information on aircraft guidance and positioning.

MB Controls: Control of the Message Boards can be either manual, and/or automatically operated through third party detection devices (e.g., aircraft location sensing devices). The system may be further enhanced by interfacing with Apron Control software, and Airline operation system databases, including information resource management, data archiving, retrieval and reporting.

Alternative Applications for MBs: MB technologies may have alternative applications for airport operations (e.g., aircraft/vehicle movement instruction/information).
