ATM-X UAM Sub-Project is Developing Requirements with ASTM for UAM Airspace
January 18, 2022

The standards group that is developing industry Provider of Services for UAM (PSU) requirements offered the ATM-X Project’s UAM Sub-Project to collaboratively participate in writing PSU requirements for ASTM International (formerly American Society for Testing and Materials). The UAM Sub-Project accepted this offer and identified staff to participate in writing requirements. Directly authoring requirements with ASTM will ensure that NASA’s airspace expertise will translate to concrete requirements for new UAM airspace technologies that are needed as demand increases. For reference, NASA served in a more limited role as advisors rather than requirements authors in the Airspace Technology Demonstrations (ATD) and UAS Traffic Management (UTM) Projects. Asking NASA to collaborate on writing requirements further demonstrates the impact and relevance of the ongoing Strategic Management Conflict Simulation (X4). The initial requirements development commenced this month and is expected to continue through December 2022. The draft requirements will be used by industry for field trials and testing, with the expectation that these activities will inform future iterations of the standard.
