Members of the Swiss U-Space Implementation (SUSI) public-private partnership between the Swiss Federal Office of Civil Aviation, the Swiss ANSP skyguide and 27 companies active in the field of UAVs and UTM/U-Space have signed a master agreement endorsing implementation of network remote identification.
SUSI plans to introduce remote identification by year-end for public acceptance and law enforcement purposes. It can be potentially used to enhance situational awareness, but it is not meant as a tool for deconfliction or detect-and-avoid actions, says the company.
The master agreement reflects the willingness of the parties to engage in the implementation of the network remote identification in Switzerland. It governs the rights and obligations of the parties when providing SRID related services in accordance with the standard. The remote identification has public acceptance and law enforcement purpose and can be potentially used to enhance situational awareness, but it is not meant as a tool for deconfliction or detect-and-avoid actions.
The agreement defines the indicators associated with the services, acceptable and unacceptable service levels, parameters for data sharing between the parties, dispute resolution procedures for the parties with respect to the services and actions to be taken in specific circumstance. The technical annex is not attached to the master agreement, as it is still in the writing process. In case the technical conditions of the annex are not met, the agreement will be terminated.
