EUROCAE sets up counter drone working group

European standards agency EUROCAE approved the creation of Working Group 115 on Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) on 25 October 2019. Experts are invited to participate from airlines, airports, authorities, law enforcement, system manufacturers and suppliers, EUROCONTROL, ANSPs, U-space SPs, experts of R&D and economical domains and all other interested parties with experience in UAS. The Kick-Off meeting for WG-115 activities will take place on 12 December 2019 at the EUROCAE premises in Saint-Denis, France.

Identified as an urgent need by aircraft operators, airport operators and regulators, a global European approach on C-UAS capabilities was recently recognised at political level. The EUROCAE Technical Advisory Committee identified the standardisation activities that would contribute to an overall C-UAS holistic action plan. Standards will be needed to specify minimum performance of the surveillance system, interface requirements with airport stakeholders and interoperability requirements for the defeat capabilities. Deliverables covering this scope are expected to be available by Quarter 2 of 2021.
