Description

Develop a standard that presents a lexicon for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). The Standard Terminology for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (“Standard Terminology”) is designed to support the global UAS community, a community that includes both traditional manned aviators and new UAS aviators who are unfamiliar with aviation safety culture, practices, and regulations. This terminology contains a listing of terms, abbreviations, acronyms, and symbols related to UAS. It is intended to ensure the consistent use of terminology for the UAS community throughout all unmanned aircraft standards.
