AeroPing becomes the UK’s first FAA approved RemoteID module

Drone Defence Services Ltd (“Drone Defence” or the “Company”) are pleased to announce that their drone RemoteID module, AeroPing, has been officially approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).


AeroPing is a small and lightweight RemoteID transponder, providing all drone pilots the ability to present their drone’s location and flight purpose, in real-time.

There is an increased need for a real-time drone transponder, to increase airspace safety and enable a future where drones can share the skies with each other and un-manned aviation.

Recognising this need, the UK Science and Technology committee recently recommended that all drones, including existing ones, should be electronically conspicuous within two years.

Draft legislation has already been produced to make it law for drones to have a transponder.

AeroPing is the answer.

FAA Approval

The AeroPing RemoteID module is the first of its kind in the UK, to have obtained FAA approval.

The FAA have put AeroPing through a rigorous application and testing process, with the RemoteID Declaration of Compliance being awarded at the end of 2022.

Richard Gill, CEO and Founder of Drone Defence, said: “We’re incredibly pleased that our AeroPing module is the first in the UK to have been approved by the FAA.”

He continued: “The FAA approval demonstrates the module’s efficiency and capability of communicating a drone’s location and flight purpose.”

AeroPing is straightforward and easy to set up, with a real-time data feed into AeroTracker or any other DRI receiver app of your choice.

Responsible drone pilots use RemoteID.
