亚马逊和T-Mobile是八家公司中选择的八家公司,以帮助联邦航空管理局建立技术要求远程ID,一种协议,即在飞行中,需要遵循广播识别和位置数据。

其他公司包括空客,Airamap,Intel,Onesky,Skyward和Alphabet的无人机子公司翼。

“美国联邦航空局将能够在远程识别的技术公司的知识和专业知识中向我们国家的空域安全整合,”埃林秘书said today in a news release.

Today’s announcement comes months after the FAA提出一套法规草稿和信息请求relating to Remote ID.

mak远程ID需要无人驾驶飞机制造商e their products capable of sending out ID codes and location data during operation in national airspace. The rules would apply to all drones heavier than 8.8 ounces, and manufacturers would have to comply two years after the regulations take effect. Drone operators would have three years to phase out non-complying devices.

没有远程ID系统的无人机只能在特殊的FAA指定区域内飞行 - 通常是业余爱好者飞机飞机的各种地方。

The eight companies named today will advise the FAA on the technical standards and radio frequencies that would support the Remote ID system. Those specifications will be announced when the FAA publishes its final rule on Remote ID. Then the FAA would begin accepting applications for entities to become the suppliers of Remote ID equipment and applications.

Assuming the process develops as the FAA envisions, Remote ID would become a fact of life for drone operation — and for enforcement of the rules governing drone operation. Nearly 1.5 million drones and 160,000 remote pilots are now registered with the FAA, and analysts say Remote ID could turn into a market generating $1.5 billion a year by 2029.

亚马逊are already well-known for their work on drones designed for package delivery.Airbushas its own delivery-drone program known as Skyways. Intel, meanwhile, has been building drones optimized for remote monitoring. Several FAA-approved pilot projects are testing Intel’s drones as well as Intel’s Bluetooth-enabled identification system, known asOpen Drone ID.

Bellevue,Wash.-基于T-Mobile一直在providing the connectivityfor at least three pilot projects involving drones, and is looking to expand its involvement in the drone industry with the rise of 5G networks.

Not everyone is happy with the FAA’s proposed plan for Remote ID: DJI, one of the world’s largest drone manufacturers, sounded off about its objections in a1月博客帖子.

“DJI wants governments to require Remote ID for drones, but the FAA has proposed a complex, expensive and intrusive system that would make it harder to use drones in America, and that jeopardizes the success of the Remote ID initiative,” said Brendan Schulman, DJI’s vice president of policy and legal affairs. “Instead, we support a simpler, easier, and free version of Remote ID that doesn’t need a cellular connection or a service subscription.”
