Nova Systems attends meeting of Joint Authorities for Rulemaking on Unmanned Systems

Nova Systems attends meeting of Joint Authorities for Rulemaking on Unmanned Systems

  • Dec 18, 2018

Members of the Joint Authorities for Rulemaking on Unmanned Systems (JARUS) convened in Brisbane, Australia 10 – 14 December.

The meeting was hosted by the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority and focused on refining the Specific Operation Risk Assessment (SORA) (WG-6), Air Risk models and DAA (WG-4) outcomes. The potential of these efforts to support the commencement of more complex operations is attracting considerable attention internationally. Representatives included experts from National Aviation Authorities (NAAs), Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSP’s) and Industry.

Nova Systems has a rich pedigree supporting both the military and civil sector in UAS operations, with experience and knowledge spanning UAS acquisition, operations, system safety, airworthiness management and flight test and evaluation. The company is committed to contributing to the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) community both nationally and internationally, and is proud to have a representative in JARUS: Dr Terrence Martin.

Dr Martin joined representatives from many of the 56 nations involved with JARUS last week.  To help foster multi-national engagement, Nova Systems was delighted to sponsor an “Australiana themed BBQ” at Southbank Parklands for the JARUS participants. “Prawns on the BBQ”, “large tasty slabs of beef served with cold beer” and “Australian Pavlova” were provided, and left a lasting impression on the JARUS participants including representatives from the US, France, Indonesia, New Zealand, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Portugal, Israel, Romania and South Africa.



JARUS is a group of experts from the National Aviation Authorities (NAAs) and regional aviation safety organizations. Its purpose is to recommend a single set of technical, safety and operational requirements for the certification and safe integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into airspace and at aerodromes. The objective of JARUS is to provide guidance material aiming to facilitate each authority to write their own requirements, with effort dedicated to operational, safety and technical challenges that are hindering commencement of complex operations like flight over people, flight Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS), and ultimately, the full integration of UAS into the National Airspace System.
