The FAA has found a way to organize the information and location of the 1.5 million drones and over 155,000 Remote Pilots in the National Airspace, and it's called Remote ID.
Earlier today, the Federal Aviation Administration issued the proposed rule for Remote Identification of Drones which would make all drones and operators visible in the national airspace system.
The first step of this integration, calls for drone operators and corporations in the industry to provide feedback on the proposed rule for improvements they think should be made.
Equipping drones with remote identification technology is the next step after Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC), to making the skies a safer place. After the Part 107 Rules & Regulations were released on August 29th, 2016 the FAA has been slowly releasing new information on how they will begin to regulate the use of commercial operations.
These efforts are the foundation for complex operations like Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Operations and flying over people.
This new Remote ID Rule will be applied to all drones and will require you to register with the FAA.
