WELCOME – SAE 2012 AEROSPACE AND

DEFENSE GROUND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT

CONFERENCE

Dear Aviation Colleagues,

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas for the SAE Aerospace & Defence Ground Support

Equipment Conference! Our inaugural event is being held concurrently with the

Cygnus Aviation Expo, and promises to become the pre-eminent event for both the

Military (AGE) and Commercial (GSE) industry. This event brings together the ground

support technical community, to shape the future of the industry, and especially to

focus on the environmental impact of our operations.

Our sessions will focus on the engineering excellence, innovation, and technology

that have made air travel a safe and efficient. With growing environmental concerns

shaping everything from operations to infrastructure, the expectation is that aviation

will be more ‘Green’ while continuing its enviable safety record.

A diverse range of government and industry leaders, technologists, engineers

and logisticians from throughout the ground support equipment community will

be in attendance. The theme for this year’s event is “Building Sustainable Airport

Operations” to emphasize the importance of how our technologies combine and

integrate to deliver environmental benefits.

You will have a chance to work with many other leading experts on a wealth of topics

including operations, de-icing, ground power, military equipment, fuel systems, tugs,

diagnostics, alternative energies, and of course safety.

We would like to thank Cygnus Aviation Expo and Ground Support Worldwide for their

generous support of the 2012 Aerospace & Defence GSE Conference.

We understand your dedication to providing the best technical and professional

environment for your business and look forward to helping bring forward the

information that will make a difference.

Again, welcome! Enjoy your stay at the 2012 SAE Aerospace & Defence GSE

Conference. We are glad to have you here.

2012 Aerospace and Defense Ground Support Equipment Conference


SAE International’s counterfeit electronic

parts risk mitigation standards.

Protection in a suite of standards.

The proliferation of counterfeit electronic parts poses signifi cant performance, reliability, and safety risks.

In 2008, SAE International was tasked by NASA and the DoD for solutions in keeping illegitimate electronic

parts out of the aerospace industry. With its rich, 100-year global standards development history, SAE

International served as a neutral forum where representatives from industry, government, and defense

could address this industry-wide, global challenge. Today, it introduces a ground-breaking suite of standards

that includes a mitigation control plan, supplier assessments, and product authenticity verifi cation.

Do you PURCHASE electronic components for integration into aerospace assemblies or equipment?

Implement a control plan to reduce the risk of counterfeit parts entering your inventory.

Use SAE AS5553 Counterfeit Electronic Parts; Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation.

Adopted by NASA and the DoD, this document standardizes methods for electronic counterfeit part mitigation outlining processes for electronic

design/parts management, supplier management, procurement, part verifi cation, materials control, and response strategies when suspect parts

are found. (Published 2009)

Evaluate whether your distributors can detect counterfeit parts from entering their inventories.

Use SAE ARP6178 Counterfeit Electronic Parts; Tool for Risk Assessment of Distributors.

This recommended practice was created to provide organizations with a tool to assess a supplier’s ability to prevent counterfeit electronic components.

Used by Missile US Defense Agency, it allows companies to evaluate the safety of buying from a particular distributor. (Available late 2011)

Go a step farther: Specify suppliers comply with AS6081 to meet AS5553 flow-down requirements.

Do you DISTRIBUTE, supply, or sell electronic parts and/or components to the aerospace market?

Tell your customers that you have a system in place to mitigate the risk of counterfeit parts.

Certify to SAE AS6081 Counterfeit Electronic Parts; Avoidance Protocol, Distributors.

This standard describes a program that certifi es distributors/suppliers to the requirements

of AS5553. While it assists distributors in implementing a risk mitigation program, it

maintains certifi ed distributors of electronic components whose use of these controls is

designed to ensure delivery of authentic products. (Available late 2011)

If, as a distributor you receive electronic parts from sources other than the original

manufacturer, consider using ARP6178 in conjunction with AS6081 to self-asses your suppliers.

Do you TEST electronic components or certify distributors

to AS6081?

Accreditation ensures standardized testing of suspect electronic parts.

Use SAE AS6171 Test Methods Standard; Counterfeit Electronic Parts.

This document ensures consistency of test methods across the supply chain by defi ning test

methods for counterfeit electronic part detection. To be used for accreditation of distributors

with in-house test capabilities or independent third-party test facilities who will be verifying

compliance to AS6081. (Available early 2012)

Do you purchase electronic

parts for high-risk performance

applications in MARKETS OTHER

THAN AEROSPACE?

AS5553 is a solution for addressing fake

component issues across the electronics

industry and any market sector—medical,

computer, security, or phone—where failure

of an electronic part is not an option. The

requirements of AS5553 are generic and

intended to be applied to all organizations

that procure electronics parts.

STOP

illegitimate electronic parts from entering the

supply chain, your inventory, your design.

Ground-breaking standards in response

to industry need since 1916.
