Elsight provides Remote ID technology and communications required to operate unmanned vehicles beyond visual line of sight. Built into the Elsight Halo which provides a BVLOS communications solution, the Elsight Remote ID module provides complete compliance with all FAA and EASA requirements.

What is Remote ID?

Remote ID is the ability of a drone in flight to provide identification and location information that can be received by other parties. Remote ID assists law enforcement, the FAA and other federal agencies, as well as anyone with the appropriate mobile app, in finding the controller when a drone is flying where it is not allowed to fly or appears to be flying in an unsafe manner. Remote ID also provides the groundwork for the safety and security foundations required for complex drone operations.

Who needs Remote ID?

While Remote ID is currently not mandatory, the final ruling by the FAA on Remote ID will require most drones operating within the US airspace to have Remote ID installed. Drone manufacturers must comply with the rule’s final requirements by September 16, 2022. The operational compliance date upon which all drones will be required to have Remote ID capabilities is September 16, 2023. The European Union’s aviation regulation body, the EASA, has similar requirements.


What will Remote ID Broadcast?

A standard Remote ID-enabled Drone, or a drone with a remote ID broadcast module, should be able to transmit the following message elements:

  • A unique identifier for the drone (required)

  • The drone’s latitude, longitude, geometric altitude, and velocity (required)

  • An indication of the latitude, longitude, and geometric altitude of control station (standard) or take-off location (broadcast module)

  • A time mark

  • Emergency status (Standard Remote ID Drone only)

Why Elsight Remote ID?

The Elsight Remote ID is an integral part of the Elsight Halo BVLOS communication solution. When you use the Elsight Halo you receive absolute connection confidence and extended communication coverage for all BVLOS operations. You also receive the built-in Remote ID module, this with no added room required on the drone, providing minimal impact on the SWaP (size, weight and power) budget of the aircraft. Halo supports Bluetooth and cellular network Remote ID, and is currently working on implement Wi-Fi. With Elsight’s Halo you will be ready with a Remote ID solution well before the compliance date comes into effect. While others will struggle as the compliance date approaches in order to implement Remote ID onto their drones, manufacturers and operators using Elsight’s Halo will not have to worry.
