The Drone Safety Team (DST) is an industry-government partnership committed to ensuring the safe operations of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in the National Airspace System (NAS). The DST strives to enable the safe integration of UAS by defining consensus-based safety enhancements based on a data-driven process and collaboration amongst members of the UAS industry.
The Drone Safety Team is thrilled to announce that we are accepting new members! Please read the following information to decide if you would like to be a voting member or an associate member and complete the form. We look forward to meeting with you soon!
Organizational Member Types and Categories:
Voting Member (Industry) - Represent US companies or organizations that design, manufacture, operate, test, provide services for or otherwise directly support drone systems or the drone industry.
Voting Member (Government & Academia) - Represent US government agencies that design, operate, test, regulate or conduct RDT&E activities for drones.
Associate Members (non-voting) - Represent US companies, organizations or associations that do not meet the criteria for voting members but who are stakeholders in safely integrating drones into the National Airspace System.
Observers (non-voting) - Are entities who do not fall into the above categories but that have a unique perspective or ability to contribute to DST activities. Observers may include certain non-US government agencies, such as regulators.
Voting Member organizations may select one Primary member who votes on behalf of the organization. Organizations may also designate an Alternate member who votes when the primary member is unavailable. Observers (from any type of organization) are non-voting members and may be allowed to attend when there is value to the DST.
