Default European Union requirements for Remote ID Add-On

The EU's requirements for a "direct Remote ID add-on system" can be found in Part 6 here:



Requirements for a direct remote identification add-on
A direct remote identification add-on shall comply with the following:

allows the upload of the UAS operator registration number in accordance with Article 14 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947 and exclusively following the process provided by the registration system;

has a physical serial number compliant with standard ANSI/CTA-2063 Small Unmanned Aerial Systems Serial Numbers, affixed to the add-on and its packaging or its user's manual in a legible manner;

ensures, in real time during the whole duration of the flight, the direct periodic broadcast from the UA using an open and documented transmission protocol, of the following data, in a way that they can be received directly by existing mobile devices within the broadcasting range:
the UAS operator registration number;
the unique physical serial number of the add-on compliant with standard ANSI/CTA-2063;
the geographical position of the UA and its height above the surface or take-off point;
the route course measured clockwise from true north and ground speed of the UA; and
the geographical position of the remote pilot or, if not available, the take-off point;

ensures that the user cannot modify the data mentioned under paragraph (3) points ii, iii, iv and v;

is placed on the market with a user's manual providing the reference of the transmission protocol used for the direct remote identification emission and the instruction to:
install the module on the UA;
upload the UAS operator registration number.
Pretty simple and direct. Might be a good thing to suggest to the FAA as an NPRM comment.

Looks like a good idea.

Sorry, you can't have an "open and documented transmission protocol" that also "cannot be modified by the user".

It's like these government types live in a fantasy world. They are demanding two things that are mutually exclusive.

For that matter, even closed, proprietary protocols are subject to reverse-engineering and manipulation. Just ask pretty much any technology company that's ever put any significant tech product, hardware or software, to market.
