Calling all public safety professionals! Help us prepare for the next exciting step in safe drone integration. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a proposal for remote identification of drones and the deadline to comment is March 2. We highly value the input of the public safety community to help shape the framework for safe drone operations. As a public safety professional, you are on the front line facing the challenges posed by unsafe drone operators. You know first-hand the dangers that unidentified drones can pose to our airspace and your emergency operations, as well as the challenges of removing violators from the impacted area. With nearly 1.5 million drones and 155,000 remote pilots registered with the FAA, the ability to identify and locate drones is essential to keeping them safely separated from other aircraft operating in our airspace. Equipping drones with remote identification, or Remote ID, technologies build on the previous steps to safely integrate operations. Remote ID is part of the foundation for more complex operations, such as beyond visual line of sight at low altitudes.| Please take the time to read our Notice of Proposed Rulemaking  in the Federal Register and provide your feedback to help us develop a final rule that enhances the safety and security of our nation’s skies. Thank you in advance for taking the time to provide us with your critical input to the Remote ID rule.
