UAS Remote ID Air Data Networks and Beacon Adaptations for Expanding First Responders Access to Commercial UAS Sensors

Open Source Networks of Airborne Sensors for Public Safety

Pierce Aerospace proposes a concept to rapidly deploy commercially available high quality sensors to an incident commander through a pre-approved identification and tracking mechanism (Remote ID) actively in development for the commercial and civil identification and tracking of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). In the near future numerous commercial UAS with high quality sensors will be operational over airspace all across the nation. These sensors provide tremendous opportunities for utilization of first responders, but those UAS and their operators must first pass through an approval process to be granted access to airspace overhead of an emergency.

Increases numbers of airborne sensors

Pierce Aerospace's Flight Portal ID (FPID) Remote ID and Tracking system can be utilized as a key to GIS-based Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) systems. These keys can allow approved commercial UAS to come on scene to support public safety with an array of high powered sensors.
