ASTM WK45201

    Revision of F3005 - 14 Standard Specification for Batteries for Use in Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F3005 - 14a

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


    1. Rationale

    Review of the subject standard (WK31511) by members of the FAA near the end of the final balloting of 2013 has necessitated changes which were considered beyond editorial by ASTM staff. Because these more extensive changes could not be incorporated in the post-ballot edits to the standard, the committee made the decision to implement them as a revision immediately following the release of F3005. This action was due mainly to the impetus to publish the entire body of sUAS standards together in early 2014. This work item will incorporate all of the substantive changes compiled and evaluated by the committee from the FAA and other reviewers.
