In 1967, ASAE established some of the initial engineering performance standards for ROPS
design and testing.
Gilles Laurent, Executive Vice President, Flight Operations Air France said We are looking forward to have ROPS
and APFD TCAS installed on our A320 and A330 fleets.
Proteins very similar to ROPs
exist in humans and provide chemical signals that tell cancer when to metastasize.
On a broader scale, the ROPS
retrofit program has potential for wider safety applications and several research papers have identified the adoption of ROPS
as a technology that should be applied to vehicles like tractors and All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs).
Most current wheel loaders must meet strict guidelines for ROPS
and FOPS safety standards.
For this report, data from four of these states were analyzed, including use of ROPS
(Iowa, Kentucky, New York, and Ohio), year of tractor manufacture (Iowa, Kentucky, and Ohio), and the mean annual usage for these tractors (Iowa).
The patented Airbus ROPS
system computes minimum realistic in-flight landing and on-ground stopping distances and compares them to available landing distances in real time.
are fundamental protective equipment for tractors, but the two traditional versions--fixed ROPS
and manually adjustable ROPS
--both pose complications that AutoROPS is designed to overcome," noted NIOSH Director John Howard, M.
Indiana, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Oregon, and West Virginia) survey covering approximately 14,000 tractors, 65% of tractors had no rollover protection, 27% had enclosed ROPS
, and 8% had unenclosed ROPS
(NIOSH, unpublished data, 1992).
In March this year American Airlines selected ROPS
to equip its A320 Family fleet.
