Swiss-based RigiTech Eiger drone “now FAA compliant for remote ID” – BVLOS on the horizon

RigiTech, a Swiss drone technology company, has announced that it has received confirmation from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that its Eiger drone is now registered as a Remote ID compliant UAS, marking a significant milestone in the company’s efforts to operate beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) in the United States.

RigiTech’s Eiger drone’s compliance with the standard Remote ID requirements (“ASTM F3411-22a-RID-B compliant”)  lays the necessary groundwork for BVLOS operations by meeting one of the FAA’s key safety and security prerequisites, says the company.

“A recent study by SkySafe, a drone tracking and intelligence company, highlighted the challenges in the industry by revealing that a majority of drone manufacturers have not developed their technology in line with established standards…..With this FAA approval, we are one step closer to realizing our vision of fully integrated, safe, and efficient drone operations that can transform various sectors, from logistics to emergency services.
