The European UAS Standards Coordination Group (EUSCG) has announced the release of a new version of the Rolling Development Plan (RDP) for implementing UAS standards by the end of June.
The EUSCG is a joint coordination and advisory group established to coordinate the UAS-related standardisation activities across Europe, essentially stemming from the EU regulations and EASA rulemaking initiatives. The EUSCG provides a link to bridge the European activities to those at international level. According to EUSCG, this document brings together all relevant regulatory and standardisation activities and their status, and is updated regularly in order to maintain visibility and awareness of the progress. It provides a method for the identification and discussion of overlaps, and as a basis for feedback to contributing organisations, to improve overall coordination of standards developments. The process also identifies the technical input from other sources into the standards plan through the interfaces of the EUSCG with the international level. This last version is the fourth one and integrates the roadmap provided by EASA and other civil and military organisations.
