More Delays in Issuance of UAS Remote Identification Regulations

StaffLaw Enforcement Resources, News2 Comments

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced on Thursday October 3rd, that the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for remote identification of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS or drones) has been delayed yet again. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking is now scheduled for release sometime in December of this year. These rules will address remote identification, which is the ability of a drone to transmit identifying information to other parties on the ground while operating in the national airspace. Parties would include the Law enforcement officials, Federal security agencies and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Currently, UAS regulations do not provide a way for authorities to identify the owner of the drone from the air with the exception by physical inspection of the self-labeled registration number. Therefore, many drone flights can be conducted anonymously, even those that violate the law and FAA regulations. The FAA aims to enhance the ability of state and federal authorities to respond to reports of a drone operating in an unsafe or unlawful manner such as operation in no-fly zones. The reason for this latest delay has not been released however, the FAA will certainly be under pressure to act promptly and to try to meet this third deadline for release of these rules.

  1. 90 percent obey and register there recreational drones. The discussion of tracking users and small distances while big business gets to deliver packages , any failure far more dangerous. Is more regulation of freedom when 400 feet and using rules. Registering in controlled areas to tower and are not the problems occurring. Again law breakers don’t do these steps , will not and you now make the hoppy useless as law breakers still do as they wish . More easy to use resources of tax dollars to find them then know where law overlying citizens are. RC has been around for 50 plus years and those helicopters could cut a head off. Regulation of law boating citizens answers nothing. Make a mistake and go 50 feet to high your now a criminal while criminals use to transfer paraphernalia and destroy drone basically free people suffer. Those you should find , are free. Regulation is not law created by the legislature. So how is it law? Yet simply looking at existing lead made by the legislature. Use man power and let us help by getting everyone to obey recreational standard. Fair , fun , safe. Name one airline dropped by a drone? How many drugs have been? Why are you punishing the law abiding hobbyist ? Exactly, thank you. Wayne Dines
