6.4. Weather-specific payload restrictions

Operating limitations of payloads can be different to those of the drone itself. For example, temperature ranges for the reliable operation of certain sensors might be more limited than those of the drones that carry them.

Risks

  1. Payload damage.
  2. Unreliable or misleading sensor readings.

Audit Steps

  1. Understand the additional risks caused by wind or precipitation in case of sensitive payloads.
  2. Assess the adequacy of flight restrictions in place based on dangerous weather patterns.
  3. Review mission logs and validate compliance with weather related flight restrictions.
