Drone technology has the potential to deliver significant benefits across multiple industries, from construction to transport. Achieving this potential will depend on building confidence in safety, airworthiness, privacy and beyond – areas where standards could have an important role to play.
Our new report, developed with ARPAS-UK, the Association of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems, considers the current landscape for the standards related to drones and uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS), and provides an assessment of potential priorities for the future.
Why download the report?
The findings in the report are based on extensive industry engagement including more than 300 responses from an online survey, and around 40 follow-up interviews. This was supplemented by extensive domain research to identify national and international standards of relevance to UAS.
The report provides insights into:
- The current standards landscape including work happening in the UK and internationally
- Key challenges and opportunities facing deployment of UAS
- Signposts to some of the regulatory issues
- What standards might be needed in future and how this could help the industry and support innovation
