Description / Abstract:

This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides general characteristics, requirements, and design data to be recommended for inclusion in a procurement technical specification of an electromechanical actuator (EMA), including its control and monitoring.


1. This document is limited to design requirement recommendations only.

2. U.S. military specifications created using this document as a guideline should use MIL-STD-961 as a guide for preparation of the specification.

3. Appendix A provides supplementary information to assist in the compilation of an EMA technical specification.


This document is intended to be used by actuation system specifiers and actuation system integrators who may wish to specify the complete electromechanical actuation system or subsystem requirements of an EMA to a lower level. The reader of this document may therefore wish to select the level of requirements specified.
