DO 160

AERONAUTICAL QUALIFICATION: RTCA / DO-160 STANDARDS

The purpose of RTCA DO-160 “Environmental Conditions and test Procedures for Airborne Equipment” is to define a series of test environments and test procedures for on-board equipment. The environments and procedures applied to this equipment depend on the category defined in the following documents, along with aircraft type, conditions of use and the installation of the equipment in the aircraft.

This document is also referenced under the name EUROCAE ED-14G.
