DRONE TAG BEACON
Slap-on device so your drone can legally fly
Effortless way to let your drone fly safe & compliant in EU and US regions. Direct / Broadcast Remote Identification device compatible with any drone.
Dronetag Beacon is the bare minimum solution for Direct / Broadcast Remote via Bluetooth 4 and 5. It ensures that your drone is detectable to all air traffic participants and allows you to track the drone in real-time. It may be attached to any drone regardless of its manufacturer and makes you compliant with new EU and US regulations.
Direct / Broadcast Remote Identification
New regulations are forcing professional pilots in EU & US regions to make their drones digitally visible. We created Beacon, the add-on that makes drones instantly compliant with the latest DRI standards. Upgrade your existing drone, without the need to purchase new aircraft.
Slap the Dronetag Beacon on and instantly enhance your drone with DRI capability. The tiny device transmits the drone location via Bluetooth to up to a 3 km (1.86 miles) range.
As Beacon is transmitting data via Bluetooth, it is usable anywhere in the world. All countries using ASD-STAN or ASTM standards are supported. Check your local rules.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What is a remote ID and why do I need it?
Remote Identification (Remote ID), means that other parties can receive basic information about airborne drones digitally (in a similar way to general aviation). The example data that Remote ID drones transmit wirelessly during flight is the operator's registration number, drone serial number, and current position.
Europe and US are currently leading the way with the rest of the world following their trajectory. Remote ID aims to enable organized management of drone operations to ensure safe airspace.
2. What is the difference between the Direct and the Network Remote ID?
There are two types of Remote IDs. The first is Direct (in some countries called Broadcast) Remote ID (DRI), in which the drone broadcasts data directly to nearby entities ranging from hundreds of meters to a few kilometers. The second type is Network Remote ID (NRI), where the drone sends the data via a cellular network to a central system where it can be accessed by other users.
3. When do I need DRI and when NRI? Do I need both?
The current European-wide drone regulation requires all drones flying in a Specific category to fulfil the DRI requirements starting 1st July 2022. The technology and protocol are already defined in prEN 4709-002. However, the situation about the NRI mandate is still a bit unclear. All we know is that it will be required to access U-space airspace starting January 2023.
In the USA, the FAA mandates pilots to use DRI modules from September 2023 and drone manufacturers to comply with it (to produce Standard Remote ID drones) starting December 2022.
To sum it up, having both DRI and NRI systems on your drone is better. Dronetag Mini is future-proof and will always fulfill the latest standards.
