The F38 Committee addresses issues related to design, performance, quality acceptance tests, and safety monitoring for unmanned air vehicle systems.

Stakeholders include:

  • Manufacturers of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and their components
  • Federal agencies
  • Design professionals
  • Professional societies
  • Maintenance professionals
  • Trade associations
  • Financial organizations
  • Academia

Over 130 members are involved in this multinational initiative; all participating actively within a three-tiered subcommittee structure focusing on airworthiness, flight operations, and operator qualifications. Committee F38 meets twice a year, usually in May and November, with approximately 50 members attending technical meetings. The Committee currently has jurisdiction of 14 standards, published in the Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Volume 15.11. The F38 standards play a preeminent role in all aspects important to the UAS industry.
