The DDSG will strategically identify emerging technologies, and coordinate standardization activities across SAE standards committees necessary to support D&D technologies at the system, subsystem, and component levels, as well as within the supporting infrastructure. The Steering Group will define the standardization landscape necessary to support and advance D&D related development, certification, and operations and propose a way forward for developing such standards. The DDSG will provide requirements and recommendations in creating industry consensus standards to accelerate innovation and adoption of D&D capabilities by leveraging the standards and expertise of relevant existing SAE technical committees. To this end, the group will solicit membership from primarily aerospace but also ground vehicle OEMs, system suppliers, engine manufacturers, certification authorities, operators, small businesses, and other stakeholders, and will base its work on inputs from members involved in technical committees of various standards organizations.
