      Unmanned Aircraft System Remote Identification Architecture
                      draft-card-tmrid-uas-arch-00

Abstract

   This document defines an architecture for Trustworthy Multipurpose
   Remote Identification (tm-rid) 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 Commision Delegated Regulation 2019/945 and Commission
   Implementing Regulation 2019/947.  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 (UAS Remote ID and
   Tracking), is a Proposed New Standard [WK65041].  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
