In 2019 the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) funded the AW-Drone project with the aim to contribute to the safe use of UASs by supporting the ongoing EU regulatory process for the identification of technical standards and procedures. The assessment provided by the AW-Drones project did not include the assessment of the technical content to determine whether the standards are adequate to meet the safety objective of the provisions of the related regulations. This research tender should focus on the technical assessment of these standards listed in the URDP and recommend by the AW Droned project and new standards introduced by the EUSCG, as part of its regular update. Moreover, this research should identify potential new standards, in addition to those listed in the U-RDP, to show compliance with chapters 2, 3, and 4 and Annex 3 to the U-space Regulation, assess the standards, and provide a recommendation to EASA on their acceptability as means of compliance.
The subject matter of the contract is the provision of a research study on UAS Standards. The research action consists of five tasks:
• Task 1: Work methodology;
• Task 2: Identification of satisfactory industrial standards;
• Task 3: Justification for not acceptable industry standards;
• Task 4: Communication, dissemination, knowledge-sharing, stakeholder management;
• Task 5: Project management.
