Emerging Landscape Of Unmanned Aircraft Systems Regulations

A Classic Infographic for TÜV SÜD

#Education #Technology

The use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) is expanding rapidly beyond traditional military and public safety applications. These devices are now being widely adopted by commercial enterprises and consumers. In this project with our new friends at TÜV SÜD, we helped visualize safety challenges and new regulations in this infographic.

The emerging landscape of UAS Regulations With increased demand comes increased need for safety Users, government agencies, and the general public have growing needs for UAS safety protocols and regulations. Ensuring compliance, safety, and quality TÜV SÜD partners with manufacturers from design phase to deployment, bringing safe, high-quality drones to market efficiently and avoiding potential product recalls. One individual can only operate one UAVRegistration is compulsoryUAS operations should not take place under or inside covered structures or over non-participating personsDoes not apply to model aircraft Unmanned Aircraft System WHAT IS UAS? Electrical Safety Functional Safety Mechanical Safety Chemical Safety Security Testing Wireless Testing Environmental Testing PRIVACY AND SECURITY A UAV equipped with cameras has the potential to violate the privacy of others. Property damage or personal injury may occur if a UAV crashes in populated areas. This UAS regulatory framework's (enacted August 2016) requirement and operating rules are: PUBLIC SAFETY Potential airborne collision poses safety risks. FLIGHT SAFETY Environmental conditions can damage onboard power source. DEVICE SAFETY The definition covers units used for a broad range of purposes, including: Precision Agriculture Media, sports and entertainment Wind Energy Monitoring Recreation Less than 25kgAltitude limit of 400ftVisual Line of Sight (VLOS) onlyDaylight-only operation Battery Safety Studies estimate that the global UAV drones market is expected to increase to approximately BILLION (USD) by 2022 400’ maximum 300’ 200’ 100’ UAS operating altitude An aircraft without a human pilot onboard. In the emerging industry of UAS, TÜV SÜD provides valuable testing to ensure public safety and product integrity.
