    CAT VIII Working Group Members*

  • General CommentsCertain aircraft platform jurisdiction separate from military systems on the aircraftAircraft not subject to independent controls on the systemsAircraft can be separately exported/valued from systems exportedItem specific controls for all cargo/transport/utility designated aircraft (e.g., C-40)Allows support of EAR (dual use) platform to be EAR services while support to USML systems on the aircraft would be defense services

  • General Comments (continued)If military requirement similar to FAA mandated requirement for commercial aircraft, then related systems should be considered EAR Inert fuel tanks (requirement to inert center fuel tanks)Basic ballistic protection (cockpit doors, pilot seats, rotor blades)Advanced military armor still controlled under USMLNight Vision used in medevac, search and rescue, offshore oilNight Vision Goggle compatible for aircraft is EARFAA Technical Standard Order (TSO) C164 for Night Vision Goggles used on Emergency Medical Service Helicopters. Night Vision compliant is USML NVIS compliant documented in MIL SPEC MIL-L-85762A More stringent requirements Chromaticity (color) requirement NVIS A or B, Spectral Radiance, Sunlight readability (contrast ratio)

  • General Comments (continued)Certain types of military aircraft based on age should be removed from USML Specific age (50 years since production) Specific year cutoff (1960)Applied to aircraft models (F-111A vs. F-111D)Obsolete aircraft platforms out of production and not in US Government inventory should not be controlled as a defense article (F-86 Saber)Depot level maintenance ability to do maintenance would follow control level of item (e.g., aircraft platform but not on high tier military system on the platform)17(c) clarification would remain in effect

  • Cargo/Transport/Utility AircraftAircraft functionality that is not military unique does not need to be controlled under USMLShort field takeoffHeavy load/large capacityBallistic protectionCrash tolerance

    Aircraft with military unique functionality / systems controlled under USML (Tier 3)Air-to-air refueling Advance airdrop systemsDefensive systems

  • Fighter/Bomber/Attack AircraftAircraft for deploying WMD or containing Tier 1 military systems (Tier 1)

    General fighter/bomber/attack/specialized (e.g., anti-submarine warfare) aircraft (Tier 2)

    Trainer aircraft that do not have other controlled systems (e.g., afterburners) not capable of combat should not be controlled or if controlled, be done so Tier 3

  • Developmental AircraftDevelopmental aircraft/engine would not be a separate item but technology on the aircraft /engine would be compared to control list to determine level of controlFighter technology demonstrator controlled as fighter (Tier 1 or 2)

  • Inertial Navigation SystemsConsider combining Cat VIII(e) with Cat XII to cover all military inertial in one categoryExport control rationale:Standard INS less military attributes (e.g., SAASM/GPS, space qualified) subject to dual use controlsDefense article / dual use item based upon unique functional attributesTiered controls for product and technology based on performance capability level

  • Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs)Prevalent in both military and in non military useControl UAVs at level of similar manned aircraftAttack UAV on USML (Tier 1 or 2)Utility UAVs (Tier 3 or not controlled)

  • Engines GeneralAero gas turbine engine propulsion systems with military unique attributes controlled on USML (Tier 2)Thrust augmentation/afterburnerThrust/exhaust nozzle vectoringLow observable structures/coatings Aero gas turbine engines without military unique attributes controlled under EARTurboprop, turbo shaft and reciprocating enginesNon-propulsion engines (Auxiliary Power Units)Engine controls system hardware and software that enable military unique attributes controlled on USML (Tier 2)

  • Commercial Common & Military Unique ItemsCommonFan Disk, Hub and BladesCommonInlet Case and Vanes; Sound Suppression and Containment of Blades FailuresMilitaryLow Observable Inlet Coatings, Paints & Structures MilitaryLow Observable Exhaust Coatings, Paints & Structures CommonLow Pressure Compressor Technology & MaterialsCommonHigh Pressure Compressor Technology & Materials; Integrated Blades & Rotors; Variable Vane & Bleed SystemsCommonFuel Delivery & Combustor Systems Technology & Materials; CoatingsCommonTurbine Blades & Vanes; Materials; Cooling; Coatings; Temperatures & Turbine Exhaust SystemsMilitaryThrust Augmentation (Afterburner only); Thrust Vectoring; Exhaust Nozzle Vectoring & Afterburner SystemsCommonEngine Controls (FADEC, DEEC); Fuel Pumps; Accessory Gearbox Assemblies)MilitaryEngine Control Enclosures Hardened for EMP/RCBN Exposure; Software to Control Military Unique Attributes

  • Parts and ComponentsAircraft/engine parts and components with same functionality as similar items on commercial aircraft under EAR or USML Tier 3 Parts Nuts, bolts, screws, stringers, brackets, clamps, fasteners, seals, O rings, gaskets, wire bundles (EAR99)Components/Assemblies landing gear, aileron, flaps, slats, rotor blades, propellers, hydraulic systems, electric power systems, air management systems, fire protection/detection (EAR99 or EAR Tier 3) Major Assemblies wings, fuselage (USML Tier 3)Unique military attribute/technology components controlled under USML (e.g., nozzle vectoring/afterburner systems, LO components) (USML Tier 2)
