NATO FINAS Cdr Max Snow, Royal Navy Chairman, NATO FINAS EASA UAV Workshop Paris, 1 st February 2008
FINAS Flight In Non-Segregated Air Space
Active Subgroups Interoperable C2 Data Link Specialist Team for STANAG 4660 Programme Support Team for HALE & MALE NATO Staff Requirements UAV Control System Specialist Team for STANAG 4586 Jt Capability Group UAV Flight in Non- Segregated Airspace Working Group USAR Specialist Team Conference of National Armaments Directors (CNAD)
Mission To recommend and document NATO-wide guidelines to allow the cross-border operation of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in non- segregated airspace
FINAS - Members by Nation CA GE IT NL SP PO FR SW US – USAR ST Chair UK - Chair TU
FINAS Other NATO UAV System Documents Medical Standards Study 7192 Airworthiness Sense & Avoid Designated UAV Operator Training Human Factors STANAG 4670 Working Paper STANAG 4671 Study 4685 Air Traffic Management NATMC Working Paper System Architecture & Data Links STANAGs 4586 & 4660 Spectrum Management NC 3 Board - Frequency Management Sub-Committee
STANAG DUO Training Requirements Designated UAV Operator Lists skills by –Subject knowledge areas –Task knowledge –Task performance Tailored to UAV type and role Undergoing Ratification Being translated into French Public domain
STANAG USAR UAV Systems Airworthiness Requirements Fixed wing UAVs 150 to 20,000 kg Not stand alone – broad equivalence with CS-23 US, UK, FR, NL Ratified with Reservations so far Public domain – always!
USAR - Rotary Wing USAR - Light FINAS intend to produce certification codes: USAR-RW –based on CS-27 –Italy lead USAR-Light –UAVs < 150kg –France lead
Study Human Factors and UAV System Safety FINAS exploring new topic Agree objectives and deliverables Agree approach –analyse UAV accidents –understand HF performance –make recommendations
Sense & Avoid Functional Requirements Must consider separation provision & collision avoidance Critically dependent on CONOPS Ambient probability of collision Proposing TLOS = 5 x collisions/flight hr Safety validation needed
How can NATO help? NATO is NOT a Regulator but….. Standardisation promotes: –interoperability –economy of effort –mutual trust Why not use our USAR as basis for civil CS- UAV ?
