uAvionix announced their Remote ID Broadcast module for drones, pingRID. This aviation-grade, small, lightweight, and easily attached transmitter is a fast and simple way for drone operators to comply with FAA Remote ID rules. Backed by uAvionix’s years of RF innovation and experience with delivering ultra-low SWaP and effective avionics, pingRID meets the FAA’s Part 89 Remote ID standards.
“The Remote ID rule is a key part of the FAA’s commitment to safely integrate uncrewed aircraft into the National Airspace System and uAvionix is pleased to apply its avionics experience by delivering a product that meets the FAA’s requirements without sacrificing the drone operators’ time or aircraft performance,” notes Paul Beard, uAvionix CEO and Academy of Model Aeronautics Hall of Famer. “A license plate for your drone needn’t be complex or require an application to run and with pingRID, you simply charge, attach and fly – it’s that easy.”
pingRID comes pre-configured and ready to use out of the box. Once the unique identification number is assigned to an aircraft’s registration with the FAA, operators can attach the battery-powered device to their drone and prepare for flight. The compact and lightweight device fits most aircraft without impacting performance and is quickly rechargeable via USB-C.
The FAA’s final decision on Remote ID comes into effect on September 16th, 2023. It requires all drone pilots to meet the operating requirements of Part 89. This will require flying a drone equipped with Standard Remote ID, a Remote ID Broadcast module, like pingRID, or flying at a Federally Recognized Identification Area (FRIA).
