ASTM has released standards (i.e., F2911-14E1, F2930-16E1, F2972-15, F3035-22, F3198-18, F2839-11, F3003-14, F3205-17) in support of manufacturing of light sport aircraft and small UAS (sUAS). These standards include best practices for promoting production compliance, however recently emerging unique aspects of UAS type certification (e.g., Durability and Reliability means of compliance, Associated Elements, Certified Category) require UAS-specific production approval guidance to the UAS community. Part of this task/activity will be to evaluate the other ASTM standards for relevance to production approval for UAS and leverage existing standards insofar as practicable.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
