ANSI issues user survey to collect input on the standardisation roadmap for UAS

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released a user survey to assess how stakeholders are using the standardisation roadmap for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) version 2.0 which was published by the ANSI UAS standardisation collaborative (UASSC) in June 2020. The number of registered downloads has almost reached a thousand and this new version expands the content with the identification of additional standardization features not included in the previous 1.0 version. The roadmap can be downloaded from here

Launched in 2017, the ANSI UASSC has the mission to coordinate and accelerate the development of the standards and related conformance programs needed to facilitate the safe integration of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) into the US national airspace system, with international coordination and adaptability. 

The roadmap collects published standards and partially developed standards, detects gaps in them, and makes recommendations for priority areas where additional standardization including pre-standardization research and development (R&D) is needed.  The roadmap aims to support the growth of the UAS market with an emphasis on civil, commercial, and public safety applications. Its recommendations are envisaged to be widely adopted by the standardization community. It covers a wide range of UAS related issues: airworthiness; flight operations; personnel training, qualifications, and certification; infrastructure inspections; environmental applications; commercial services; workplace safety; and public safety operations.
