    Revision of F3005 - 14a 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



    WK56160

    1. Rationale

    Cell manufacturers are now required to certify their cells to UL2054 and UL1642. The means of determining if a battery is exempted from the standard is deferred to the system designer as defined in F2910. Mechanical design criteria unique to a particular system is to be defined by the system designer, with RTCA-DO-160 to be referenced in establishing the performance criteria.
