Indicate if externally funded aircraft operations, beyond those provided by the AAF, are included in the proposal. If so, indicate the nature of the operations proposed (e.g., platform, operator, payload summary) and explain the purpose of those aircraft briefly. This is for informational purposes and may be important for coordinating with other ARM activities.
IMPORTANT Non-ARM unmanned aerial systems and tethered balloon platforms must show a successful history of operation—i.e., multiple documented operations of the system carrying the intended payload weight at the heights proposed with core infrastructure (e.g., power and mounting systems)—prior to approval of the ARM Aviation Safety Plan. Written documentation of this should be provided in the proposal submission or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: [Proposal Name] [PI Name] Platform Documentation.
Reminder: The AAF is not included in the April 5, 2019, annual call for proposals.
