EUROCAE Open Consultation ED-311

We are pleased to announce the availability of the following draft EUROCAE document prepared by EUROCAE WG-105 SG-4 "Design and Airworthiness" for Open Consultation:

Draft ED-311 "MOPS for Command Unit Core Layer of UAS to be operated in the EASA certified category of operations"

The objective is to elaborate a Remote Pilot Station (RPS) MOPS for the EASA certified category of operations. It will focus on RPS Core Layer, as proposed by ICAO, and refined by EASA in RMT.0230 EASA concept for regulation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) operations in the ‘certified’ category and Urban Air Mobility - Issue 3.0, that can be used as Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) for certification. RPS is one of the main novelties of RPAS. The solutions which are available today are very heterogeneous, and the impact of certification is not fully understood and consistently implemented across the industry. This document will provide a standardised approach for Type Certification, leading to more efficient certification processes. In addition, this document could facilitate a future standalone RPS certification approach (e.g., ETSO or similar).
