This standard specifies the requirements for batteries used in small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS). It covers the standard terminology for sUAS as well as the requirements with respect to cells, mechanical design and assembly, electrical design, and maintenance of the pack and the recording of maintenance data.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This standard defines the requirements for batteries used in small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS).
1.2 This standard does not define requirements for the systems in which sUAS battery packs may be utilized.
1.3 This standard is subordinate to Specification .
1.4 If allowed by a nation’s GAA, certain sUAS may be exempt from this standard and may use commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) batteries in non-safety-critical payloads (lithium chemistries may not be exempted). Air transport regulations still shall be adhered to when air transport is used for COTS cells or batteries in bulk.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
