MIL-PRF-32464, PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION: U.S. ARMY GROUND VEHICLE ENERGY ATTENUATION (EA) STEERING SUBSYSTEMS (07-OCT-2016)
MIL-PRF-32464, PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION: U.S. ARMY GROUND VEHICLE ENERGY ATTENUATION (EA) STEERING SUBSYSTEMS (07-OCT-2016)., This performance specification describes performance and verification requirements for Army Ground Vehicle steering subsystems with steering wheels and steering columns. The components of these subsystems may include steering wheels, Energy-Attenuating (EA) “spider brackets”, horn assemblies, attachment provisions for an airbag, and any attached switches for items such as cruise control, radio controls, and turn signals. This document provides EA steering teams with a reference from which to extract previously derived requirements to specify EA steering fit, form, and function to obtain the steering subsystem design intent. Some requirements in this document lack specificity in order to ensure the engineering team derives and tailors specific requirements addressing the particular vehicle configuration and operational conditions. For any given case, it is expected that these requirements and associated criteria will be tailored to support the particular ground vehicle design and operational requirements.
