Today, AeroDefense has declared the integration of Remote ID into its existing AirWarden™ drone and pilot detection system. In addition, the company has also introduced a new product called the AirWarden Remote ID Receiver. This broadcast receiver is designed to be low-cost and low-profile.

The Federal Aviation Administration‘s Remote ID rule requires most drones flying in the United States to broadcast identification and location information in real-time, allowing for remote monitoring and identification of drones in the airspace.  The Remote ID system aims to enhance safety and security, as well as integrate drones into the National Airspace System (NAS). For more information on the rule- visit FAA Remote Identification Rule.

As part of the first flightPlan Aviation Accelerator cohort of the Smart Airport and Aviation Partnership (SAAP), AeroDefense created the AirWarden Remote ID Receiver. The SAAP, in conjunction with the Atlantic County Economic Alliance, awarded a research grant to support the development of this product.

“AeroDefense embraced the collaboration and innovation opportunities that SAAP offers, and we hope to see many more cohort graduates achieve the same success.” said Carole Mattesich, Program Director.

The AirWarden Command Console informs users when a Remote ID compliant drone enters their airspace, while the entry-level AirWarden Remote ID Receiver receives Remote ID broadcasts. The end user receives crucial real-time information such as drone type, speed, and drone/pilot location. Additionally, all other Remote ID information collected during detection can be accessed and reviewed as needed.

An organization with multiple sites to safeguard can conveniently monitor all locations from a single screen and receive visual alerts when a drone incident occurs in their specific area of concern.

“The innovative AirWarden Remote ID Receiver not only receives Remote ID broadcasts but also detects WiFi drones publicly transmitting,” said Linda Ziemba, AeroDefense Founder and CEO. “The affordable receiver makes drone detection realistic for critical locations such as our nation’s schools that are unbelievably vulnerable to violence. Security operations centers can monitor multiple locations and dispatch emergency response vehicles equipped with more powerful AirWarden sensors to detect and track drones that are not transmitting and can connect to AirWarden Remote ID Receivers when needed.”

Spoofing the Remote ID signature, disabling the broadcast module, or operating a homemade device are all potential tactics that malicious individuals may use. To address these concerns, organizations with a low risk tolerance and a high level of drone threat require a solution that can both receive Remote ID broadcasts and detect non-broadcasting drones, regardless of their make or model.

AeroDefense is launching the beta testing phase of the AirWarden Direction Finder Module in Q3 2023. For those interested in participating in the beta testing or inquiring about AeroDefense’s range of fixed and mobile products, please contact or call 732-284-3853.

About AeroDefense: AeroDefense offers fixed and mobile drone detection solutions for stadiums, airports, correctional facilities, military forces, and other critical infrastructure. AeroDefense’s patented Radio Frequency (RF)-based drone detection system, AirWarden™, detects, classifies, locates, and tracks both drone and pilot simultaneously, providing actionable intelligence to respond effectively (and safely) to drone threats. Because AirWarden passively detects drone signals via RF spectrum sensing, it recognizes devices it has not seen before, unlike systems reliant on signature databases, and does not violate federal criminal surveillance laws. Based in Oceanport, NJ, AeroDefense is a privately held company with all engineering, manufacturing, and support based in the US. To learn more about AeroDefense and AirWarden, please visit
