        Drone Remote Identification Protocol (DRIP) Architecture
                        draft-card-drip-arch-01

Abstract

   This document defines an architecture for Drone Remote Identification
   Protocol (DRIP) Working Group protocols and services to support
   Unmanned Aircraft System Remote Identification (UAS RID), including
   its building blocks and their interfaces, all to be standardized.

1.  Introduction

   Many safety and other considerations dictate that UAS be remotely
   identifiable.  Civil Aviation Authorities (CAAs) worldwide are
   mandating UAS RID.  The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA)
   has published [Delegated] and [Implementing] Regulations.  The United
   States (US) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has published a
   Notice of Proposed Rule Making ([NPRM]).  CAAs currently promulgate
   performance-based regulations that do not specify techniques, but
   rather cite industry consensus technical standards as acceptable
   means of compliance.

   ASTM International, Technical Committee F38 (UAS), Subcommittee
   F38.02 (Aircraft Operations), Work Item WK65041, developed new ASTM
   F3411-19 [F3411-19] Standard Specification for Remote ID and
   Tracking.  It defines 2 means of UAS RID.  Network RID defines a set
   of information for UAS to make available globally indirectly via the
   Internet.  Broadcast RID defines a set of messages for Unmanned
   Aircraft (UA) to transmit locally directly one-way over Bluetooth or
   Wi-Fi.  Network RID depends upon Internet connectivity, in several
   segments, from the UAS to the observer.  Broadcast RID should need
   Internet (or other Wide Area Network) connectivity only for UAS
