FAA Announces Technology Partners for Remote ID Development
https://www.faa.gov/news/press_rele...fm?newsId=24956
For Immediate Release
May 5, 2020
Contact: pressoffice@faa.gov

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) today announced the eight companies that will assist the Federal government in establishing requirements for future suppliers of Remote Identification (Remote ID). Remote ID will enable Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), commonly called drones, to provide identification and location information while operating in the nation’s airspace.

The FAA selected the following companies to develop technology requirements for future Remote ID UAS Service Suppliers (USS): Airbus, AirMap, Amazon, Intel, One Sky, Skyward, T-Mobile, and Wing. These companies were selected through a Request for Information process in December 2018.

“The FAA will be able to advance the safe integration of drones into our nation’s airspace from these technology companies’ knowledge and expertise on remote identification,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.

This initial group will support the FAA in developing technology requirements for other companies to develop applications needed for Remote ID. The applications will provide drone identification and location information to safety and security authorities while in flight.

The technology is being developed simultaneously with the proposed Remote ID rule. Application requirements will be announced when the final rule is published. The FAA will then begin accepting applications for entities to become Remote ID suppliers. The FAA will provide updates when other entities can apply to become qualified Remote ID USS on FAA.gov.

Drones are a fast-growing segment of the transportation sector with nearly 1.5 million drones and 160,000 remote pilots now registered with the FAA. The agency’s ability to develop Remote ID technology simultaneously with the rule enables the FAA to continue to build on a UAS Traffic Management (UTM) system that has demonstrated global leadership through the small UAS rule and the implementation of the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC), which automates the application and approval process for most UAS operators to obtain airspace authorizations.

Wonder why Spektrum and Futaba are not part of that list?

Add-on devices probably. Pass the cost to us. The comment period really helped. Not surprised they didn't care. This has been pre planned from the go of it.

My initial knee-jerk thought: My guess is because they are "hobby" suppliers; The FAA and corporate friends definitely don't want any part of the hobby mixing in with their power grab.

In all seriousness, you raise a very good question. One that I would like to know myself.

Power Grab is the right term! Skyward is a Verizon owned company. Given the billions in backing they have, there isn't going to be much that can be done unfortunately. The FAA is going a different route this time after the whole John Taylor case and how he won. The FAA's approach to handling this is noting short of being destructive to the hobby as a whole.

I got that note from the FAA.

I think it is important to note that this panel wasn't formed to discuss whether or not remote identification was coming or necessary - it was founded to establish "requirements for future suppliers". It's a forgone conclusion in the FAA's eyes that remote identification is a done deal. They aren't asking should we, they are asking how will we.

I also found this quote interesting:
Drones are a fast-growing segment of the transportation sector with nearly 1.5 million drones and 160,000 remote pilots now registered with the FAA.
Why do I get the impression they required us to register and are now using that very data to support their perceived requirement for control? I'm left with the impression we would have been better off not registering.

Our only hope is a carve-out for traditional modeling. Certainly remote identification is coming. Hopefully they will find a way to exclude us.

I sure hope so. I can't help but feel like we are being regulated "out of their way".

Yeah. I'm not sure we are even at the table. Easier (for them) to just make regulations that make us a non-factor. Still, I'm trying to be positive and not hyperventilate until necessary. I still have some misguided hope that the FAA will notice the stupidity of requiring remote identification for a craft such as a model helicopter.

In reference to the OP's quote, I received the below email from the FAA today.
Thanks for the questions we received after yesterday’s press release on the Remote ID Cohort. To clarify, the Cohort is not part of the decision-making process for the proposed Remote ID rule final rule. The Cohort will help the FAA develop technology requirements for other companies to develop applications needed for Remote ID. The comment period on the Remote ID Notice of Proposed Rulemaking closed on March 2, 2020, and the FAA is reviewing the more than 53,000 comments.

I got the same email, Bill.

We are getting remoteID. It's now just a matter of the technology, and who makes it.

The FAA guy that presented at a local "drone safety" briefing a while back here said just as much. They want real-time data on everything from the ground up. These last few emails from the FAA seem to confirm that.

By chance, that guy wasn't Albert McCray from the Jackson FSDO was it?

Honestly, I don't remember, but that name does look very familiar; It very well could have been him.
