ANSI UAS standardization collaborative calls for participants

American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has announced it has issued a call for participants for its Unmanned Aircraft Systems Standardization Collaborative (UASSC), the company said.

The UASSC´s mission is to coordinate and accelerate the development of the standards and conformity assessment programs needed to facilitate the safe integration of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), or drones, into the national airspace system. The collaborative also focuses on international coordination and adaptability, with the goal of fostering the growth of the UAS market, particularly related to civil, commercial, and public safety applications.

The 2018 roadmap identifies existing standards and standards in development and related conformance programs, defines where gaps exist, and recommends additional work that is needed including a timeline for its completion and organizations that potentially can perform the work. The UASSC does not develop standards.

American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is a private non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance US global competitiveness and the American quality of life by promoting, facilitating, and safeguarding the integrity of the voluntary standardization and conformity assessment system.
