DroneBeacon
Remote ID transponder

DroneBeacon is a so-called direct or broadcast Remote ID long-range transponder, equipped with its own GPS and battery. A  transponder is also called add-on, tracker, tag or (wireless) number plate. DroneBeacon can be attached to a medium or large (consumer) drone. (The “DJI Mavic” is the minimum drone size.) It is compliant with the (upcoming) standards in the EU and USA.  Furthermore, the transponder is optimized for long range due to its transmit power and antenna design. It also supports all transmission protocols for maximum flexibility.

 

DroneBeacon can be attached to a drone by using the M5 screw noses or use the included M3 dual-lock stickers. Fully charged, the transponder allows a battery live over 7 hours. There are 4 battery LEDs to show the current battery level. The transponder can be configured easy using any device, by pressing the configuration button and connect to the dronebeacon Access Point.

Applications for the DroneBeacon Remote ID transponder

The transponder can be used to upgrade legacy drones with Remote ID. Do you need a smaller transponder? In Q3 2022, we plan to launch a mini-version of the transponder. Do you want to integrate the transponder with your drone? The DroneBeacon MAVLink will be a better choice.
