Safety Working Group - March 2017 Project Update

Share

The Safety Working Group is currently seeking a Dronecode system-based FAA waiver for operations beyond those permitted under the regular Part 107 rules. This application can then be the foundation of a process for certifying Dronecode-based UAVs.

Accomplishments

  • Draft application (waiver) written
  • Candidate systems and use cases identified; companies are reviewing
  • Testing data and processes documented and statistics gathered

Challenges

  • Interfacing with internal regulatory teams at Dronecode member companies is slow

Plan for next month

  • Select candidate platform/operator for application
  • Submit to FAA Pathfinder Office for review/feedback
