In a request for information quietly issued late December, the FAA said it wants to find partners to help develop a practical approach to the data sharing required to remotely identify small drones in controlled airspace. The data collected would include a unique identifier for the UAS, tracking information and drone owner and remote pilot identification, according to the FAA’s 2017 report on the remote ID program.

The FAA is seeking remote ID UAS service suppliers (USS) who, at no cost to the government, will participate in workshops; develop position papers, technical requirements, prototype technology demonstrations; and conduct demonstrations with the FAA and with other partners.

The goal, according to the RFI, is to field initial capabilities across one or more private-sector platforms to gain experience, which will then be applied to “enhancing and scaling future capabilities as well as to broadening the user base of the demonstrations.”

Eight participants are expected be selected, and they will develop a technical and legal framework for initial prototyping and testing that will inform a national capability.
