Not sure exactly what your question is but first off the gearbox is referred to as the ADG (accessory drive gearbox).
The AGD in the F-16 has been unchanged for the most part throughout the life of the F-16 since the General Dynamics days. It carries and drives the aircraft generators, hydro pumps, and with the mounted JFS (jet fuel starter) it starts the engine via a power takeoff shaft. While the engine is running the JFS is shutdown and the engine then drives the ADG through the PTO shaft.
The AMAD is the same principle as applied to the F-15 aircraft.

I mean which MIL/SAE standard is presently used.
