Green UAS is the first product of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI’s) broader Trusted Cyber Program, which AUVSI launched in August 2022 with collaboration from AUVSI members and Fortress Information Security, a cybersecurity firm with experience in industry-led cyber standards development.
The assessment process is administered by AUVSI — a nonprofit association for drones and autonomous systems — in collaboration with the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU). AUVSI will work with a network of cybersecurity firms to rapidly vet drones and components that are seeking Green UAS certification using frameworks that address threats and cyber risks in the areas of corporate cyber hygiene, product and device security, supply chain risk management, and for drones that are not seeking to go from Green to Blue, remote operations and connectivity.
Green UAS assesses and verifies commercial drones meet cybersecurity and NDAA supply chain requirements through a security controls assessment and vulnerability and penetration test. The Green UAS cleared list of drones and components is designed to meet updated levels of security requirements under the DIU’s Blue UAS 2.0 program.
Green compliant drones that have a DoD customer/sponsor willing to sponsor and fund a DoD Authority to Operate (ATO) may have the opportunity to transition from the Green UAS cleared list to Blue UAS cleared list.
Green UAS builds on Blue UAS to serve the non-defense drone community and bolsters the drone manufacturing base.
