JD Supra and UAS Vision report that that the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) promulgation of the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for Remote Identification of UAS is being delayed, according to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) – part of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
The OIRA published its Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions, better known as the Unified Agenda, earlier in May; The NPRM had been scheduled for July 2019 but is now slated for release in September 2019, according to the Agenda.
“Remote ID is considered by many to be an essential piece of technology to fully integrate UAS operations into the national airspace system. Remote ID would better facilitate unmanned flight operations over people, and the development of UAS Traffic Management Systems,” says the news source. “Remote ID is also considered an important tool for law enforcement, by reducing the number of anonymous, unaccountable UAS operations that have unknown intent, and thereby pose safety risks to the public.”
