INTEGRATED REMOTE ID

BEACON AM

Beacon systems broadcast the identity of your drone via WiFi to anyone equipped with a receiving device. Beacon AM is to be integrated inside the drone and it must be powered by a voltage source from 4.2V to 8.4V. Its light weight of only 9 g allows the device to be integrated on very small aircraft. It is delivered with a 3-pin JST JR solder plug.

FRENCH COMPLIANCE

DGAC

On 29 June 2020 in France, all unmanned aircraft weighing more than 800g will have to be fitted with an electronic identification device.The Fly ID AM remote identification system enables any aircraft model to comply with the French DGAC decree of 27 December 2019.

Register your drone

On 29 June 2020 in France, all unmanned aircraft weighing more than 800g will have to be fitted with an electronic identification device. Zephyr Beacon systems broadcast the identity of your drone via WiFi to anyone equipped with a receiving device. You can also register your drone on the Alpha Tango platform.

Direct Remote Identification

Zephyr Beacon AM system transmit the identity of your drone via Wifi to anyone equipped with a receiving device. 

The system transmits the drone’s serial number, take-off position, latitude, longitude, altitude, speed and direction. As well as making airspace safer, this is a highly effective way of finding a drone that has lost its link and/or crashed.

Low consumption

Its low power consumption of 40 mA on average means that the model’s range is not adversely affected.

Receive mode

Zephyr beacons have a “Receive” mode that can be accessed from the main page of the interface. This turns the beacon into a remote electronic signal receiver. In this mode, the beacon no longer broadcasts its signal, but ‘listens’ to wifi channel 6 to detect frames corresponding to the remote electronic signal.

Web interface from your mobile

AM beacon has a web interface that can be accessed from any device via a WIFI connection. The web interface is only active when the beacon is being initialised (LED flashing yellow), and is deactivated after 30 seconds once the GPS signal has been acquired (LED flashing green).

The web interface lets you check that the beacon is working properly and switch it to receive mode to view other beacons nearby.

 

Compatibility & options

It is delivered with a 3-pin JST JR solder plug (compatible with most receivers: FUTABA, GRAUPNER, etc.) and a heat-shrink tube.  

You can choose to receive your Beacon AM with the connector soldered to the electronics and a protective sheath already installed. Alternatively, you can receive your Beacon AM unassembled and do the soldering yourself.

What is a Direct Remote Identification (DRI) system?

Direct Remote Identification (DRI) system transmits your drone’s basic information digitally via Bluetooth 2.4GHz to anyone equipped with a receiving device.  The system transmits the drone’s serial number, take-off position, latitude, longitude, altitude, speed and direction. As well as making airspace safer, this is a highly effective way of finding a drone that has lost its link and/or crashed.

Why equip your drone with a Direct Remote Identification system?

The Direct Remote Identification (DRI) systems are intended for drones that are not equipped with this device by default, and for drone manufacturers wishing to integrate the device into their aircraft.

These systems enable any drone to comply with the latest European regulations imposed by the EASA.

How do I connect to the Direct Remote Identification interface?

The Fly ID system has a web interface that can be accessed from any device via a WIFI connection. The web interface is only active during system initialisation (LED flashing yellow), and is deactivated after 30 seconds once the GPS signal has been acquired (LED flashing green).

Find the name of the Fly ID wifi network, then connect to this network. Open a browser, go to the address 192.168.1.1 and you’ll be connected to your beacon’s web interface.

How do I link my Direct Remote Identification system to my operator number?

Log in to your Fly ID’s web interface.

Click on “Settings”, then enter the type of aircraft and your operator number.

Your Direct Remote Identification (DRI) systems is now linked to your operator number.

 

What regulations do Dronavia's Direct Remote Identification systems comply with ?

The Fly ID range comply with the prEN 4709-002 standard, which requires direct remote identification for drones weighing more than 250 grams and flying at less than 120 metres in the specific category.

The Beacon AM remote identification beacon enables drones to comply the French DGAC Order of 27 December 2019.

For which drones should a Direct Remote Identification systems be used?

The use of a Direct Remote Identification (DRI) systems is mandatory for all drones (aircraft) weighing more than 250g that are not equipped with this device as standard.

Why do Direct Remote Identification systems have a web interface?

Fly ID systems have a web interface that can be accessed via WiFi to configure the beacon with your operator number and update the system.

Are Direct Remote Identification system visible on drone tracking applications?

All Direct Remote Identification (DRI) systems work with drone tracking applications (such as DroneScanner and OpendroneID). Open your application, start your system and it will appear on your application. You can retrieve all flight information from the application, and easily manage your flights.
