Australia – Remote Identification Discussion Paper for Public Consultation

Australia – Remote Identification Discussion Paper for Public Consultation

As technology evolves, so too must the enabling environment, including the management of airspace. Remote ID is considered a necessary building block to support the safe and transparent operation of drones in Australia and leading to improved safety, security and accountability outcomes.

The discussion paper highlights the users, uses, benefits and challenges of Remote ID. It describes the two forms of Remote ID being considered for integration in Australia’s airspace, Network Remote ID (NRID) and Broadcast Remote ID (BRID). The discussion paper proposes policy options and relevant questions for consideration.

Some of the broad thematic areas we are looking for feedback on are:

  • Should a Remote ID mandate be developed?
  • Which method of Remote ID would be more beneficial?
  • What impacts would a Remote ID mandate have on drone operators?
  • What are the technical, security, privacy and cost implications of Remote ID?
