Download as PDF 54576 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 180 / Monday, September 18, 2006 / Rules and Regulations (emergency fire fighting and protective equipment) must be met independently for each separate section except for lavatories or other small areas that are not intended to be occupied for extended periods of time. 15. Where a waste disposal receptacle is fitted, it must be equipped with a built-in fire extinguisher designed to discharge automatically upon occurrence of a fire in the receptacle. 16. Materials (including finishes or decorative surfaces applied to the materials) must comply with the flammability requirements of § 25.853 at Amendment 25–72. Mattresses must comply with the flammability requirements of § 25.853(b) and (c) at Amendment 25–72. 17. All lavatories within the CRC are required to meet the same requirements as those for a lavatory installed on the main deck except with regard to Special Condition No.10 for smoke detection. 18. When a CRC is installed or enclosed as a removable module in part of a cargo compartment or is located directly adjacent to a cargo compartment without an intervening cargo compartment wall, the following apply: (a) Any wall of the module (container) forming part of the boundary of the reduced cargo compartment, subject to direct flame impingement from a fire in the cargo compartment and including any interface item between the module (container) and the airplane structure or systems, must meet the applicable requirements of § 25.855 at Amendment 25–72. (b) Means must be provided so that the fire protection level of the cargo compartment meets the applicable requirements of § 25.855 at Amendment 25–72, § 25.857 at Amendment 25–60 and § 25.858 at Amendment 25–54 when the module (container) is not installed. (c) Use of each emergency evacuation route must not require occupants of the CRC compartment to enter the cargo compartment in order to return to the passenger compartment. (d) The aural warning in Special Condition No. 7 must sound in the CRC. 19. Means must be provided to prevent access into the Class C cargo compartment during all airplane flight operations and to ensure that the maintenance door is closed during all airplane flight operations. 20. All enclosed stowage compartments within the CRC that are not limited to stowage of emergency equipment or airplane-supplied equipment (e.g., bedding) must meet the design criteria given in the table below. As indicated by the table below, this special condition does not address enclosed stowage compartments greater than 200 ft 3 in interior volume. The inflight accessibility of very large enclosed stowage compartments and the subsequent impact on the crewmembers ability to effectively reach any part of the compartment with the contents of a hand fire extinguisher will require additional fire protection considerations similar to those required for inaccessible compartments such as Class C cargo compartments.

For compartments less than 25 ft3 in interior volume, the design must ensure the ability to contain a fire likely to occur within the compartment under normal use. 2 Detectors Enclosed stowage compartments equal to or exceeding 25 ft3 in interior volume must be provided with a smoke or fire detection system to ensure that a fire can be detected within a one-minute detection time. Flight tests must be conducted to show compliance with this requirement. Each system (or systems) must provide: (a) A visual indication in the flightdeck within one minute after the start of a fire; (b) An aural warning in the CRC; and (c) A warning in the main passenger cabin. This warning must be readily detectable by a flight attendant, taking into consideration the positioning of flight attendants throughout the main passenger compartment during various phases of flight. 3 Liner If it can be shown that the material used to construct the stowage compartment meets the flammability requirements of a liner for a Class B cargo compartment, then no liner would be required for enclosed stowage compartments equal to or greater than 25 ft3 in interior volume but less than 57 ft3 in interior volume. For all enclosed stowage compartments equal to or greater than 57 ft3 in interior volume but less than or equal to 200 ft3, a liner must be provided that meets the requirements of § 25.855 at Amendment 25–72 for a class B cargo compartment. 4 Location Detector Crew rest areas which contain enclosed stowage compartments exceeding 25 ft3 interior volume and which are located away from one central location such as the entry to the crew rest area or a common area within the crew rest area would require additional fire protection features and/or devices to assist the firefighter in determining the location of a fire.

Background On June 9, 2006, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, Dallas, Texas, applied for a supplemental type certificate (STC) to modify Gulfstream G150 airplanes. The Gulfstream G150 is a low-wing, pressurized, transport category airplane with two fuselagemounted jet engines. It can seat up to 19 passengers, with a crew of two pilots. The modification consists of installing an electronic laser inertial reference system. These systems have a potential to be vulnerable to high-intensity radiated fields (HIRF) external to the airplane. Type Certification Basis Under provisions of 14 CFR 21.101, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation must show that the Gulfstream G150 airplanes, as changed, continue to meet the applicable provisions of the regulations incorporated by reference in Type Certificate No. A16NM or the applicable regulations in effect on the date of application for the change. The regulations incorporated by reference in the type certificate are commonly referred to as the ‘‘original type certification basis.’’ The specific regulations are 14 CFR part 25, as amended by Amendments 25–1 through 25–108 with exceptions as indicated in the Type Certificate Data Sheet. If the Administrator finds that the applicable airworthiness regulations (part 25, as amended) do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for the Gulfstream G150 airplanes because of a novel or unusual design feature, special conditions are prescribed under the provisions of § 21.16. In addition to the applicable airworthiness regulations and special conditions, the G150 airplanes must comply with the fuel vent and exhaust emission requirements of 14 CFR part 34 and the noise certification requirements of 14 CFR part 36. The FAA issues special conditions, as defined in § 11.19, under § 11.38, and they become part of the type PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 54577 certification basis under the provisions of § 21.101. Novel or Unusual Design Features As noted earlier, the Gulfstream G150 airplanes modified by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation will incorporate an electronic laser inertial reference system that will perform critical functions. This system may be vulnerable to high-intensity radiated fields external to the airplane. Current airworthiness standards of part 25 do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for protecting this equipment from adverse effects of HIRF. So this system is considered to be a novel or unusual design feature. Discussion As previously stated, there is no specific regulation that addresses protection for electrical and electronic systems from HIRF. Increased power levels from radio frequency transmitters and the growing use of sensitive avionics/electronics and electrical systems to command and control airplanes have made it necessary to provide adequate protection. To ensure that a level of safety is achieved equivalent to that intended by the regulations incorporated by reference, special conditions are needed for the Gulfstream G150 airplanes modified by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation. These special conditions require that new avionics/electronics and electrical systems that perform critical functions be designed and installed to preclude component damage and interruption of function because of HIRF. High-Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF) High-power radio frequency transmitters for radio, radar, television, and satellite communications can adversely affect operation of airplane electric and electronic systems. Therefore, the immunity of critical avionics/electronics and electrical systems to HIRF must be established. Based on surveys and an analysis of existing HIRF emitters, an adequate level of protection exists when airplane system immunity is demonstrated when exposed to the HIRF environments in either paragraph 1 or 2 below: 1. A minimum environment of 100 volts rms (root-mean-square) per meter electric field strength from 10 KHz to 18 GHz. a. System elements and their associated wiring harnesses must be exposed to the environment without benefit of airframe shielding.

Applicability These special conditions are applicable to Gulfstream G150 airplanes modified by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation. Should Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation apply at a later date for a supplemental type certificate to modify any other model included on Type Certificate No. A16NM to incorporate the same or similar novel or unusual design feature, these special conditions would apply to that model as well under provisions of § 21.101.

Background

    On June 9, 2006, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, Dallas, Texas, 
applied for a supplemental type certificate (STC) to modify Gulfstream 
G150 airplanes. The Gulfstream G150 is a low-wing, pressurized, 
transport category airplane with two fuselage-mounted jet engines. It 
can seat up to 19 passengers, with a crew of two pilots. The 
modification consists of installing an electronic laser inertial 
reference system. These systems have a potential to be vulnerable to 
high-intensity radiated fields (HIRF) external to the airplane.

Type Certification Basis

    Under provisions of 14 CFR 21.101, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation 
must show that the Gulfstream G150 airplanes, as changed, continue to 
meet the applicable provisions of the regulations incorporated by 
reference in Type Certificate No. A16NM or the applicable regulations 
in effect on the date of application for the change. The regulations 
incorporated by reference in the type certificate are commonly referred 
to as the ``original type certification basis.'' The specific 
regulations are 14 CFR part 25, as amended by Amendments 25-1 through 
25-108 with exceptions as indicated in the Type Certificate Data Sheet.
    If the Administrator finds that the applicable airworthiness 
regulations (part 25, as amended) do not contain adequate or 
appropriate safety standards for the Gulfstream G150 airplanes because 
of a novel or unusual design feature, special conditions are prescribed 
under the provisions of Sec.  21.16.
    In addition to the applicable airworthiness regulations and special 
conditions, the G150 airplanes must comply with the fuel vent and 
exhaust emission requirements of 14 CFR part 34 and the noise 
certification requirements of 14 CFR part 36.
    The FAA issues special conditions, as defined in Sec.  11.19, under 
Sec.  11.38, and they become part of the type certification basis under 
the provisions of Sec.  21.101.

Novel or Unusual Design Features

    As noted earlier, the Gulfstream G150 airplanes modified by 
Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation will incorporate an electronic laser 
inertial reference system that will perform critical functions. This 
system may be vulnerable to high-intensity radiated fields external to 
the airplane. Current airworthiness standards of part 25 do not contain 
adequate or appropriate safety standards for protecting this equipment 
from adverse effects of HIRF. So this system is considered to be a 
novel or unusual design feature.

Discussion

    As previously stated, there is no specific regulation that 
addresses protection for electrical and electronic systems from HIRF. 
Increased power levels from radio frequency transmitters and the 
growing use of sensitive avionics/electronics and electrical systems to 
command and control airplanes have made it necessary to provide 
adequate protection.
    To ensure that a level of safety is achieved equivalent to that 
intended by the regulations incorporated by reference, special 
conditions are needed for the Gulfstream G150 airplanes modified by 
Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation. These special conditions require that 
new avionics/electronics and electrical systems that perform critical 
functions be designed and installed to preclude component damage and 
interruption of function because of HIRF.

High-Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF)

    High-power radio frequency transmitters for radio, radar, 
television, and satellite communications can adversely affect operation 
of airplane electric and electronic systems. Therefore, the immunity of 
critical avionics/electronics and electrical systems to HIRF must be 
established.
    Based on surveys and an analysis of existing HIRF emitters, an 
adequate level of protection exists when airplane system immunity is 
demonstrated when exposed to the HIRF environments in either paragraph 
1 or 2 below:
    1. A minimum environment of 100 volts rms (root-mean-square) per 
meter electric field strength from 10 KHz to 18 GHz.
    a. System elements and their associated wiring harnesses must be 
exposed to the environment without benefit of airframe shielding.

[[Page 54578]]

    b. Demonstration of this level of protection is established through 
system tests and analysis.
    2. An environment external to the airframe of the field strengths 
shown in the table below for the frequency ranges indicated. Immunity 
to both peak and average field strength components from the table must 
be demonstrated.

review of existing studies on the subject of HIRF and of the work of 
the Electromagnetic Effects Harmonization Working Group of the Aviation 
Rulemaking Advisory Committee.

Applicability

    These special conditions are applicable to Gulfstream G150 
airplanes modified by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation. Should 
Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation apply at a later date for a 
supplemental type certificate to modify any other model included on 
Type Certificate No. A16NM to incorporate the same or similar novel or 
unusual design feature, these special conditions would apply to that 
model as well under provisions of Sec.  21.101.

Conclusion

    This action affects only certain novel or unusual design features 
on Gulfstream G150 airplanes modified by Gulfstream Aerospace 
Corporation. It is not a rule of general applicability and affects only 
the applicant who applied to the FAA for approval of these features on 
the airplane.
