NASA/DFRC is hereby soliciting information about potential sources for participation in a case study to draft a type certification basis for the airworthiness of an unmanned aircraft system (UAS).
The case study is being conducted as part of NASA’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration in the National Airspace System Project. The goal is to advance formation of the UAS certification process by developing a type certification basis for a UAS (including the aircraft, communication links, ground control elements, and other supporting equipment). The case study would involve working with a team from NASA to identify all existing Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) that apply to the UAS, proposed exemptions from the regulations, and proposed special conditions. The case study would also evaluate the results to determine applicability to other UAS.
