Dedrone leverages remote drone ID capability in US and EU

Dedrone has announced it can now enable its customers to leverage both US and EU government-provided drone remote identification standards, commonly known as Remote ID, to identify drones.

In December 2020, the United States Federal Aviation Administration (U.S. FAA) announced final rules for unmanned aircraft systems, commonly known as drones, including a requirement for Remote ID. Additionally, the European Commission Regulations on UAS, which set the framework for the safe operation and management of drone traffic in the European Union (EU), came into effect on December 30, 2020. Once these rules take effect, drone pilots in the U.S. and E.U. will be responsible for complying with drone regulations in their geography, including registering their aircraft and incorporating registration data into the drone’s Remote ID system.

Using Dedrone, security providers will be able to read Remote ID data through Dedrone’s software system to identify the drone operator, operator’s location, drone type and drone location in real time. Dedrone’s proprietary database of drone activity, DroneDNA, automatically references Remote ID data, as well as identifying any unauthorised or noncompliant drone activity.

In the event of an unauthorised drone alert, Dedrone users can respond to the threat and ensure their airspace is protected against the consequences of unwanted drones, from espionage, contraband delivery, or terrorism, while allowing authorised drones to proceed with their normal flight operations, explains the company.

By actively following FAA developments and also supporting the European Commission through participation in the ASD-STAN working group that defined the technical standard for Remote ID, Dedrone highlights it is ready for Remote ID in accordance with both sets of standards.

“Dedrone is committed to continuous product development and ensuring our product and services are futureproof,” shares Dedrone CEO, Aaditya Devarakonda. “Regardless of flight regulations, or a drone pilot’s adherence to them, Dedrone provides security leaders with the assurance that they are seeing all airspace activity, and protecting their operations, assets and information from malicious and unauthorized drone threats.”
