This presentation summarizes the current draft of the Minimum Operational Performance Standards (MOPS) generated by the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA). The MOPS will be referenced by the FAA in its Technical Standard Order (TSO) to allow Unmanned Aircraft (UA) to fly in the U.S. National Airspace (NAS).
The TSO permits vendors to certify that their product meets the UA System (UAS) Control and Non-Payload Communication (CNPC) link standard, and if appropriate, the Detect And Avoid (DAA) standard. A TSO certified unit will simplify the certification process.
This presentation deals with the CNPC link only.
