AriAscend Proposes Remote Identification System for Drones #drone #droneday


From sUAS News:

To be effective, AriAscend believes that any solution has to be universally accessible. The normal citizen should be able to capture the encrypted digital ID without having to buy any additional hardware. The proposed solution envisions utilizing Bluetooth beacons so that anyone with a cellphone or Bluetooth enabled handheld device could capture the encrypted digital ID.

AriAscend suggests that any identification system separate the digital “license plate” or ID of the UAS from the FAA’s remote pilot database, and that lookup should be limited to authorized users to prevent vigilantism. Regulations should mirror those that regulate access to personal information in state motor vehicle records or mirror the Drivers Privacy Protection Act, 18 USC 2721. Only authorized individuals such as law enforcement should be able to perform any cross referencing and lookup of personal information.

AriAscend has proposed a cost effective, accessible, technologically feasible, localized, and effective way of creating accountability for UAS and their operators. The solution provides a narrowly tailored approach to identify UAS while in the air while preserving pilot privacy.
