    Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group
    The sUAS Data IG seeks to be a forum for drone users to build appropriate drone data management infrastructure and norms collaboratively and in partnership with academia, industry, regulators, and standards bodies.

    Meeting objectives
    Prior work has shown that researchers using sUAS for their work would benefit from being able to use cloud-based scalable platforms to manage, process, analyse and publish their data from sUAS-based missions. The infrastructures such as the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), NECTAR, and commercial cloud providers have all the necessary components to build a scalable platform for these tasks. Still missing are harmonised data structures and best practices for managing and processing sUAS data on cloud platforms.
    The group’s shared work has been stalled by the pandemic. This meeting will seek to update the community on efforts that have continued throughout the pandemic and server as a opportunity to restrategise its role.
    In addition to connecting to its previous activities, the IG has been offered a TIGER grant to support a sUAS Cloud Platforms WG to deliver the recommendations on data structures and best practices for managing and processing sUAS data on EOSC and similar cloud infrastructures.
    Objectives for this session are:

    Summarise state of the art for members given COVID gap in activity

    Summarise notable advances in parallel areas

    Re-determine priority issues given (1&2)

    Re-strategise how RDA group can most effectively contribute to (3)

    Initiate a sUAS Cloud Platforms WG to contribute to the development of relevant services on the EOSC.

    Please indicate at least (3) three breakout slots that would suit your meeting.
    Breakout 1, Breakout 2, Breakout 3
