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.
CAN I USE THE MINI WITHOUT THE SUBSCRIPTION?
Yes, you can. But keep in mind, that subscription is needed to use the full potential of the Mini. It covers the costs for the SIM tariff and SW platform. Our plan starts from a mere 15 EUR / USD per month per device + you get the first 6 months for free (see our plans). Moreover, we don't lock you into any contracts, so you can cancel the subscription at any time. If you don't like our subscription model, you can still use the Mini in our Free tier (Direct / Broadcast Remote ID functionality via Bluetooth), but without the NRI and other functionalities.
CAN I USE MY OWN SIM CARD?
No. Dronetag Mini has a soldered chip SIM and we manage everything about the connectivity for you. There are very good safety, security and economic reasons for this. Concerning the safety, drone vibrations don't play well with common SIM slots and plastic SIMs. For security, we use our SIMs to authenticate against our cloud so the data we show are guaranteed and couldn't be easily spoofed. Lastly, the IoT cellular networks we use are not easily made available to the public, meaning you won't get the pricing as we have because of our higher demand. Using your own SIM would likely mean you would be locked into a long-term contract.
