ANRA Technologies launched SmartSkiesTM DroneID in partnership with the Swiss Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) and Swiss U-Space Implementation (SUSI) to remotely identify drones in Switzerland. Approved by the Swiss government, SmartSkies DroneIDTM provides appropriate levels of access to drone information based on user permissions with just a few clicks. SmartSkies DroneIDTM enables public safety organizations and next year the general public to identify drones operating in their vicinity by providing the drone registration number and mission information, while additional operator details are available to qualified authorities upon request.

This permissions-based approach protects operator privacy while also ensuring the safety and compliance of drone operations. Additionally, the SmartSkies family of solutions goes beyond Remote ID and facilitates safe drone operations by preventing collisions between aircraft operating within the same airspace. Safe, secure, and reliable, SmartSkies DroneIDTM will work anywhere in Switzerland and provides best-in-class customer service.

SmartSkiesTM DroneID is being deployed as part of a nationwide cloud-based Network Remote Identification (NET-RID) service implemented by SUSI, a public-private partnership formed to safely and securely integrate drones into the nation’s airspace. The NET-RID service complies with the ASTM F3411 standard for Remote ID and Tracking, ensuring that that data is secure and only necessary information is shared.

“The Network Remote ID service is designed to support transparency while protecting the data of drone operators and customers. ANRA is thrilled to have been able to help address the technology challenges to help gain public trust,” said Amit Ganjoo, CEO of ANRA Technologies.

In addition to NET-RID, ANRA is also providing a Discovery and Synchronization Service (DSS), which enables UAS Service Suppliers (USS) to discover with whom they need to share data and ensures USSs have a current and consistent view of shared data for safety-critical information while protecting operator privacy. ANRA is hosting one of the only two DSS instances enabling this nationwide Remote ID service.

SmartSkies DroneIDTM can be accessed on any mobile phone or computer browser.  Please visit https://droneid.smartskies.io for more information.
