Network identification service
The network identification service requires operators to share flight data by making them available to the U-space service provider of their choice. Those are aggregated by U-space service providers active in the same area and made available to authorized users: USSPs, the traffic information service, air traffic service units, relevant authorities and the general public.
The data shared by the Network remote identification service are available in their entirety to all authorized users. They include:
- the UAS operator registration number as required by (EU) 2019/947. The number can be obtained from FOCA on its UAS.gate portal. The registration number is public but related date are not. They can be requested by competent authorities following existing rules and processes for data sharing between administrative units.
- the unique serial number of the unmanned aircraft or, if the unmanned aircraft is privately built, the unique serial number of the add-on;
- the geographical position of the UAS, its altitude above mean sea level and its height above the surface or take-off point;
- the route course measured clockwise from true north and the ground speed of the UAS;
- the geographical position of the remote pilot or, if not available, the take-off point;
- the emergency status of the UAS;
- the time at which the messages were generated.
The standard used for data exchange among U-space service providers is the network portion of the ASTM F3411-19 standard. It defines mechanism to discover relevant service providers in an area and exchange data with them.
