An assault *weapon* has no definition besides the 1994 law that basically invented the concept - and the AR15 in general does fall under this definition, except for the weapons manufactured between 1994 and 2004 that remove certain features (flash suppressor, bayonet lug, collapsible stock, maybe pistol grip) but shoot the same. The definition of assault *weapon*, per this law, is based on the presence of the features I mention that most people would not consider especially important to lethality.
