The ASTM Remote ID and Tracking standard has been implemented in a demonstration to support the remote identification of drones by law enforcement and citizens in the US and Switzerland.

Carried out by AirMap, AiRXOS, ANRA Technologies, CNN, Flite Test, Kittyhawk, Uber, UASidekick, Wing and Skyward, the demonstration saw all core components of the ASTM remote ID standard implementation deployed, including a DSS node, a remote ID service and display provider service, and an AR-powered remote ID display functionality to participating observers using the AirMap for Drones mobile application.

The ASTM Remote ID and Tracking standard provides a flexible and scalable way to remotely identify UAS while protecting operator privacy. The standard proposes a Discovery and Synchronization Service, which enables UAS Service Suppliers (USS) to exchange safety-critical information while protecting operator privacy.

Different USS are able to exchange data via the Linux Foundation’s open-source InterUSS Platform. The InterUSS Platform implemented the Discovery and Synchronization Service (DSS) defined in the proposed ASTM Standard.

Remote ID is essential to the advancement of the drone industry as it allows for safety, accountability and transparency for all stakeholders. These demonstrations verified ASTM network remote ID capabilities.
