IEEE PN42.63

IEEE Draft Standard for Unmanned Aerial System-Radiation Detection (UAS-RD)

This standard establishes performance criteria and characterization techniques for radiation measurement systems incorporated onto unmanned aerial systems, or UARaMS. This standard provides a means to accurately assess a UARaMSs effectiveness to either search/localize a radiological source or characterize/map radioactive contamination. It outlines measurement expectations, functionality characterization tests, and functionality needs based on available radiation response information, test results, and expected radiation fields at applicable heights above ground level (AGL). This standard does not address individual unmanned aircraft system (UAS) performance or operations such as those items required for operation and control. The standard looks at operational scenarios, detection needs and expectations, and environmental parameters that could be experienced during use such as temperature changes, mechanical shock, and onboard vibration. For radiation, response vectors include those expected from distributed contamination and from point sources. The primary unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) of interest include those from Group 1 and Group 2 UAV designations.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.

No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.

No Inactive-Reserved Standards
