AUVSI wants US transport department to meet December milestone for remote ID rule making

The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) joined with the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and the US Chamber’s Technology Engagement Center (C_TEC) to encourage the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to hold fast to the intended December 2020 release of the rulemaking on Remote Identification (ID) for unmanned aerial systems (UAS). The industry groups called on US DOT Secretary Elaine Chao and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Administrator Steve Dickson to continue with a timely rulemaking process, given the rule’s critical step in future UAS regulation and broader industry growth. The letter went on to note that the rule should be performance based, stating, “Given our broad scope of stakeholders across many sectors of our economy, we understand the importance of allowing UAS technology to evolve and grow, and not to have growth hindered by prescriptive regulatory requirements. As such, we also urge the Department to support a final rule that sets performance requirements, rather than specifying particular solutions for Remote ID compliance.”
