ASTM WK28362

    New Specification for Standard Specification for the Design and Performance of a Ground Based Sense and Avoid System

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F38.01 | Committee F38 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Develop high level Specification for the design and performance of a Ground Based Sense and Avoid System to control Unmanned Aircraft Systems beyond line of sight of the pilot.

    This standard will be required to allow UAS that do not have an airborne Sense and avoid system to fly in non-segregated national airspace with limits beyond line of sight of the pilot. WIth the return of numerous military UAS from war zones to domestic training bases, there will be a requirement for UAS to operate from their base through non-segregated airspace to get to special use airsspace. A ground based sense and avoid system can fulfill that requirement. In addition, a ground based Sense and Avoid system may allow early access to national airspace for civil UAS operations while awaiting an airborne Sense and Avoid capability.
