Small UAS Risk Management
Small UAS remote pilots in command (PIC) are expected to develop a risk assessment. PICs must identify, document, and control hazards in the sUAS and its operating environment. This risk assessment should use a conventional breakdown of risk by its two components: likelihood of occurrence and severity. A tool to evaluate a hazard is the risk matrix, whose definitions and construction are up to the PIC to design. This presentation gives a methodology and example of constructing a risk management matrix and how to incorporate that matrix into checklists and standard operating procedures.
