Abstract

   This document is an Applicability Statement for various IETF
   Technical Specifications, including the Host Identity Protocol
   (HIPv2) and the Domain Name System (DNS), complementing emerging
   external standards 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
