DroneScout
Remote ID receiver

DroneScout is a (direct/broadcast) Remote ID receiver that receives Remote ID signals. A receiver is also called sensor or radar. The EU and USA are planning new rules that make Remote ID mandatory for drones over 250 grams weight.  Technically Remote ID is called Direct Remote ID (DRI) in the EU and Broadcast Remote ID in the USA.

The DroneScout receiver supports all transmission protocols (Bluetooth legacy, Bluetooth Long Range, WiFi NaN and WiFi Beacon) and all frequency bands (2.4, 5.2 and 5.8 GHz). Furthermore, DroneScout uses Power of Ethernet (PoE 802.3af/at) for both connectivity and power.

The product is intended for system integrators that want to integrate the DroneScout receiver into their product. In technical terms, the received Remote ID information by DroneScout is transmitted in JSON format to a MQTT broker. Reference source code is provided to process the received information. Internally, the receiver uses the Open Drone ID  framework that support both the DIN EN 4709-002 standard (EU) and ASTM F3411-19-RID-B (USA).

 

The receiver can be installed to a pole mast or to a wall by using the included mast mount and is suited for outdoor-operation.

 

Applications for the DroneScout Remote ID receiver

The beacon information can be used by general public, law enforcement and drones to give better situation awareness of the airspace around them. Applications of Remote ID receivers are in the area of security and safety. It can be security intelligence firms that are interested in nearby drones.
