FAA Sends UAS Identification Rule to OMB

On Thursday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had received a notice of proposed rulemaking from the DOT’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for “Remote Identification of Unmanned Aircraft Systems” (UAS).

The abstract for this rulemaking in the Spring 2019 Unified Agenda notes:

“This action would implement system(s) for the remote identification of certain unmanned aircraft systems. The remote identification of unmanned aircraft systems in the national airspace system would further address security and law enforcement concerns regarding the further integration of these aircraft into the national airspace while also enabling greater operational capabilities by these same aircraft.”

I suspect that this rulemaking will be limited to larger, commercial UAS not the smaller hobbies drones.
