Description

The information presented in this AIR is intended to provide information about current remote identification methods and practical considerations for remotely identifying UAS. Depending on rigor and adherence requirements, Aerospace Standard (AS) and Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) documents may be developed. For example, ARPs may provide methods to remotely identify UAS using existing hardware technologies typically available to most consumers. ARPs may also specify the information exchange and message format between unmanned aerial systems and remote interrogation instruments. An AS, however, may highlight the wireless frequency band, message type, message encoding bits, and message contents.
