The military standard referred to as MIL-E-7016F, Electric Load and Power Source Capacity, Aircraft, Analysis of" addresses the methods and analysis of electric loads and source capacity on military aircraft. The use of the document is approved for use by all departments and agencies of the United States Department of Defense (DoD). Although prepared specifically for DoD applications, the standard may be tailored for commercial applications as well.
Scope of the Specification
Lead Standardization Agency
The MIL-E-7016F specification is maintained by the United States Air Force's Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center who is chartered under the Defense Standardization Program (DSP) with maintaining the functional expertise and serving as the DoD-wide technical focal point for the specification. The current document revision (2009) is Revision F (i.e. MIL-E-7016F) which was issued on July 20, 1976.
