EUROCAE has recently communicated that their draft standards on “UTM E-Identification” are available for Open Consultation. According to them, Draft ED-282 ” Minimum Operational Performance Standard for UAS E-Identification ” defines minimum requirements for UAS e-Identification systems, specially focusing on the e-Identification function to proivde surveillance information coming from the UAS, either from the GCS or from the aircraft itself. This will be provided to other UAS and U-space services.
EUROCAE stated that compliance with this standard is recommended as one means of assuring that the equipment will perform its intended function(s) satisfactorily under all conditions normally encountered in routine aeronautical operation. It is designed to ensure that equipment (either the unmanned aircraft system or a sub-set of hardware and /or software components implementing the function) compliant to it, will be able to demonstrate safety and suitability for operational use.
The deadline for the comments submission is 05/08/2020. (https://www.eurocae.net/news/posts/2020/june/eurocae-open-consultation-ed-282/)
