What is Remote ID?
Remote Identification or Remote ID, is a wireless number plate to identify nearby drones. It contains basic information like operator, purpose and current position. Most importantly, the EU and USA are planning new rules that make so-called direct or broadcast Remote ID mandatory for drones over 250 grams weight. The Remote ID information that drones broadcast can be used by general public, law enforcement, but also drones themselves to give better awareness of the airspace around them.
Remote ID products for drones
We offer (direct/broadcast) Remote ID transponders and receivers. DroneBeacon is an add-on (transponder) for drones which broadcasts Remote ID beacon signals. DroneScout is a professional receiver that detects Remote ID signals of nearby drones up to several km distance.
Drones without Remote ID signal, can be detected with DroneScout RF receiver. It detects drones with a real time video link near your house, office or other location by looking for drone signals in the RF spectrum.
Remote ID signals of DroneScout receivers can be visualized real-time on a map using our portal solution. In addition, the portal can push Remote ID signals to UTM providers. Currently, we support the Altitude Angel platform.
DroneBeacon MAVLink is a transponder without battery and GPS, but can interface directly via a drone using the MAVLink protocol via an UART port. Support for ArduPilot is expected in release 4.3.0
