The Joint Authorities for Rulemaking on Unmanned Systems (JARUS) has announced the publication of the first Specific Operations Risk Assessment (SORA) Standard Scenario for Aerial Work Operations (STS-01) on the JARUS Website at http://jarus-rpas.org/publications.
This Standard Scenario (STS) is intended to cover UAS operations performed in the Specific category (category B) with the following main attributes:
- over sparsely populated areas
- in uncontrolled airspace
- at very low levels
- BVLOS with visual air risk mitigation
- using unmanned aircraft up to 3M dimension (wingspan or rotor diameter).
The Standard Scenario STS-01 is based on real life experience. It is meant to facilitate any operation within its scope. JARUS Working Group 6 (Safety and Risk Management) has consolidated this new JARUS deliverable taking into account the JARUS Internal and External consultation process with contributions from experts from all over the world.
STS-01 is additional deliverable complementing the SORA package 2.0, which can be downloaded at http://jarus-rpas.org/publications.
