Job Description

Description

Researches and drafts regulatory documents and reviews documents for accuracy, completeness, and compliance with appropriate requirements. Available to consult on technical, legal, and regulatory aviation issues related to specific tasks.  Is responsible for summarizing and analyzing public comments, researching aviation and other regulatory issues, participating in special projects, working with Government and industry personnel, and conducting Internet research.   

Provide expertise and research in support of FAA Flight Standards and Technologies for UAS operations in the National Airspace   System   (NAS). Part 107. Provide expertise for the development of requirements and safety regulations weather gathering or weather knowledge for Part 107 operations. Support identification of approved sources of weather for aeronautical decision making for commercial UAS operations. Support development of standards guiding, weather products for UAS flight planning,  forecasting of weather at altitudes below 400 feet , terrain variances, in geographically mountainous regions versus plains regions, as well as urban environments that pose a significant mechanical turbulence risk which is difficult to ascertain. Support development of safety standards   or regulations exist to determine and mitigate the risk of weather incursion. Research is required to 1) develop and verify a Visual Weather Observation System (VWOS), 2) determine procedural changes for UAS operations in the NAS with respect to establishing a means to accept and/or approve weather detection, prediction, application, and integration systems for use in all UAS operations.

Provide expertise in aviation weather and flight operations for 14 CFR Parts 91, 121. 135 and 137 to support development of the following:

  1. Determine the initial needs/requirements of the UAS VWOS program (e.g., weather parameters, frequency of reports, receipt of reports, locations of systems, etc.) based on weather hazards and gaps identified in the 2017 Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) / Lincoln Laboratory's (LL) Preliminary Weather Information Gap Analysis for UAS Operations, the 2020 ANSI Unmanned Aircraft Systems Standardization Collaborative (UASSC) Standardization Roadmap For Unmanned Aircraft Systems, Version 2.0, and the 2020 Federal Aviation Administration's UAS Integration Research Plan (2019-2024), reports and UAS operator feedback.
  • Generate initial needs/ requirements based on identified weather hazards and gaps.
  • Determine survey strategy for UAS operator input.
  • Develop UAS VWOS survey for UAS operators.
  • Conduct UAS VWOS survey and gather results.
  • Update initial UAS VWOS program needs/requirements based on UAS operator feedback.
  1. Develop Analyzed Weather information standards and forecast weather information standards for UAS.  Apply and evaluate the standards as they relate to UAS.
  • Literature review to identify existing weather data standards including those from federal, ASTM, and other commercial weather information providers.
  • Generate list of existing analyzed weather information standards and forecast weather information standards.
  • Apply and evaluate the risks associated with these standards as they are applied to different classes of UAS and UAS operations.
  • Propose this initial set of standards in a written document with supporting rationale for each standard.

C.  Coordination with UAS Test Site program to verify the needs/requirements of the UAS VWOS program.

Output from Task 3 (FY24):  UAS Test Site Program Coordination Plan

D.  Based on previous research, develop a list of modified weather standards and/or new weather standards for data and forecasts needed by UAS operators.

  • Generate initial list of modified weather standards for data and forecasts needed by UAS operators.
  • Generate initial list of new weather standards for data and forecasts needed by UAS operators.

E.  Determine a means to accept/approve weather information/data for use in all types of UAS operations.

  • Literature review to identify existing weather information/data for UAS operators.
  • Develop plan for integrating new weather information/data for UAS operators.
  • Develop testing plan for integrating new weather information/data use for UAS operations.
  • Develop dissemination plan for weather information/data.
  • Request industry feedback on all plans for new weather information/data for widespread use in UAS operations in the NAS.

Update all plans based on industry feedback and submit written report.

  • Use plans to test, develop, expand, and disseminate weather information/data for widespread use in UAS operations in the NAS.

F:  Standards/procedures/requirements listing, modification, and generation:

G:  Develop the UAS Visual Weather Observation System (VWOS) weather information/data.

H:  Implement modified standards/procedures/requirements for UAS operations.

Outputs from Task 8 (FY28) - Identify existing standards/procedures/requirements in for UAS operations.

  • Propose Modifications to identified existing standards/procedures/requirements for low-altitude UAS operations.
  • Provide modified existing standards/procedures/requirements for AFS-200, AFS-400, and AFS-800 review and approval.
  • Identify areas needing new standards/procedures/requirements for UAS operations.
  • Develop new standards/procedures/requirements for UAS operations.
  • Provide new standards/procedures/requirements for UAS operations for AFS-200, AFS-400, AFS-800 review and approval.
