Dronetag Remote ID (DRI)

Additional Facts 

  • Dronetag DRI is the smallest and lightest device offering affordable Direct/Broadcast Remote Capability to drone manufacturers. 
  • Dronetag’s Plug & Play Remote ID is compatible with PX4 and Ardupilot FCs (e.g., Pixhawk Cube).
  • To drone manufacturers, Dronetag offers assistance with obtaining Remote ID approval by FAA and producing C-class certified drones as defined by EASA.

Dronetag DRI Enables Remote ID Compliance

Dronetag has revealed its latest product news, the OEM solution for Direct Remote ID called DRI. The device is designed for seamless integration into the production of newly manufactured drones. It provides a cost-effective, lightweight, and user-friendly option to manufacture remotely identifiable drones. With this solution, manufacturers are on a frictionless path toward the production launch of Standard Remote ID (US) and C-class (EU) drones. 

Dronetag’s solution fuses together a comprehensive software platform with hardware modules that can be easily adjusted to the manufactures specific needs (i.e., component size, production costs, or accessibility covering a broader range of business cases). Dronetag DRI is a small, single-sided board easily mounted in the desired location using double-sided tape of M2 screws. This is the simplest way to integrate Remote ID technology without extensive R7D and product testing. 

DRI is the lightest Remote ID product on the market weighing only 1.5 grams. Combined with minimal dimensions, 22.5 x1 6mm, the impact on drone SWaP characteristics is minimal. DRI has an external flash memory allowing pilots to sync their flight data with the Dronetag app. This is a key component of the Dronetag ecosystem. The multiplatform app manages settings and firmware updates, eliminating the need to disassemble the aircraft to reach the module. Following the upcoming firmware update, drone manufacturers and resellers can remotely troubleshoot customer issues by downloading diagnostic Dataflash logs for inspection purposes. 

Meets FAA and EASA Requirements

“We feel confident to say that our solution is a game-changer for all drone manufacturers. The DRI solution for Remote ID is tearing down barriers to meet requirements set by the FAA, EASA and other regulators. We designed DRI as Plug & Play, eliminating the need for additional adjustments or settings. We are happy to provide support with the implementation and paperwork needed to obtain FAA approval or produce C-class drones as defined by EASA.” 

Normally, all drone TELEM/serial ports are occupied. This is why Dronetag DRI utilizes the UART forwarding feature. All this takes is enabling port forwarding via Dronetag App and connecting DRI between the flight controller and serial peripheral. This ensures the Dronetag device is not using any existing ports. There are two DRI variations: one with an external antenna port or one with a built-in antenna.
