The Joint Authorities for Rulemaking on Unmanned Systems (JARUS) is a group of experts from all around the world which purpose, in their own words is “to recommend a single set of technical, safety and operational requirements for all aspects linked to the safe operation of the Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS). This requires review and consideration of existing regulations and other material applicable to manned aircraft, the analysis of the specific tasks linked to RPAS and the drafting of material to cover the unique features of RPAS”
This Entity has generated several documents and we would like to introduce some of them. In first place, the SORA PACKAGE describes a complete methodology for the risk Assessment of an operation.
There were published other 2 documents related with the certification specifications of RPAS: CS-LURS and CS-LUAS, referred to rotary and fixed wings respectively.
In these documents are considered all phases of the RPAS development, from the initial design until the final flight test.
