Abstract

   This document is an Applicability Statement for various IETF
   Technical Specifications, complementing emerging external standards
   and regulations to meet needs for Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS)
   remote identification (RID).  The objectives are: to facilitate use
   of existing Internet services to support UAS RID and to enable
   enhanced RID related services; and to enable verification that UAS
   RID information is trustworthy (to some extent, even in the absence
   of Internet connectivity at the receiving node).

1.  Introduction

   Emerging Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) regulations worldwide,
   exemplified by current United States (US) Federal Aviation
   Administration (FAA) rulemaking, will soon mandate, and many safety
   and other considerations dictate (even absent regulations), that
   Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) be remotely identifiable.  CAAs are
   expected and FAA has stated its intent to require compliance with
   industry consensus standards.

   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 remote identification (RID): Network RID via the Internet; and
   Broadcast RID via a one-way data link direct from the Unmanned
   Aircraft (UA) to the observer's device.  Network RID depends upon
   Internet connectivity between the observer and either the UA itself
   or any of various proxies.  Broadcast RID should need Internet (or
