WHAT IS A REMOTE ID AND WHY DO I NEED IT?
Remote Identification (Remote ID) means that other parties can receive basic information about airborne drones digitally (similar to general aviation). It includes data such as the operator's registration number, drone serial number, and current position. Remote ID enables organized management of drone operations for safe airspace.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DIRECT AND NETWORK REMOTE ID?
There are two types of Remote IDs. Direct (or Broadcast) Remote ID (DRI) involves the drone broadcasting data directly to nearby entities within a range of hundreds of meters to a few kilometers. Network Remote ID (NRI) involves the drone sending data via a cellular network to a central system accessible by other users.
WHEN DO I NEED DRI AND WHEN NRI? DO I NEED BOTH?
The current European-wide drone regulation requires drones flying in the Specific category to fulfill DRI requirements from July 1, 2022. The technology and protocol are defined in prEN 4709-002. The requirement for NRI access in U-space airspace will begin in January 2023, although specifics are still unclear. In the USA, the FAA mandates the use of DRI modules by pilots from September 2023 and compliance by drone manufacturers (to produce Standard Remote ID drones) from December 2022. It is advantageous to have both DRI and NRI systems on your drone. Dronetag Mini ensures compliance with the latest standards.
