The first European C3 class certificate

ALTER Technology has issued the first European Class C3 Open Category Certificate to Quantum-Systems GmbH with its product the Trinity F90+.

The assessment is according to Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/945. This Regulation lays down the requirements for designing and manufacturing unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) that are intended to operate under the rules and conditions defined in Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947 and remote identification add-ons. It also describes the type of UAS whose design, production, and maintenance shall be subject to certification.


This first-ever C3 Class Label Certificate is the most complex in the Open Category, including UAS up to 25 kgs, due to the requirements involved. The process consisted of laboratory and flight tests, including MTOM, DRI, Light testing, Maximum Height, and Low-Level Battery, among others.


With this certificate, ALTER consolidates its position on the UAS Certification market after being the first Notified Body for the DR 2019/945 and being the first to issue a C3 Class Label Certificate, and is currently testing drones from the world's largest manufacturers to obtain the class label.
