Direct / Broadcast Remote Identification

New regulations are forcing professional pilots in EU & US regions to make their drones digitally visible. We created Beacon, the add-on that makes drones instantly compliant with the latest DRI standards. Upgrade your existing drone, without the need to purchase new aircraft.

Slap the Dronetag Beacon on and instantly enhance your drone with DRI capability. The tiny device transmits the drone location via Bluetooth to up to a 3 km (1.86 miles) range.

Supported regions

European Union


Compliant with prEN 4709-002 which requires Direct Remote Identification for drones above 250 grams flying below 120 meters in the Specific category.



Dronetag Beacon is Approved by FAA (check the DoC here) and Compliant with ASTM F3411 which requires Broadcast Remote ID for all pilots flying out of FAA-recognized identification areas.

Other countries

As Beacon is transmitting data via Bluetooth, it is usable anywhere in the world. All countries using ASD-STAN or ASTM standards are supported. Check your local rules.

  • What is a Remote ID and why do I need it?

    Remote Identification (Remote ID), means that other parties can receive basic information about airborne drones digitally (in a similar way to general aviation). The example data that Remote ID drones transmit wirelessly during flight is the operator's registration number, drone serial number, and current position.

    Europe and US are currently leading the way with the rest of the world following their trajectory. Remote ID aims to enable organized management of drone operations to ensure safe airspace.

    See our Knowledge base for details

  • What is the difference between the Direct and Network Remote ID?

    There are two types of Remote IDs. The first is Direct (in some countries called Broadcast) Remote ID (DRI), in which the drone broadcasts data directly to nearby entities ranging from hundreds of meters to a few kilometers. The second type is Network Remote ID (NRI), where the drone sends the data via a cellular network to a central system where it can be accessed by other users.

    Visit our Knowledge Base for more information.

  • When do I need DRI and when NRI? Do I need both?

    The current European-wide drone regulation requires all drones flying in a Specific category to fulfil the DRI requirements starting 1st July 2022. The technology and protocol are already defined in prEN 4709-002. However, the situation about the NRI mandate is still a bit unclear. All we know is that it will be required to access U-space airspace starting January 2023.

    In the USA, the FAA mandates pilots to use DRI modules from September 2023 and drone manufacturers to comply with it (to produce Standard Remote ID drones) starting December 2022.

    To sum it up, having both DRI and NRI systems on your drone is better. Dronetag Mini is future-proof and will always fulfill the latest standards.

  • Can I use the Beacon without the subscription?

    Yes, you can use Dronetag Beacon with Dronetag App in our Free tier without any monthly fees.

  • In which countries can I use Dronetag Beacon?

    All. As Beacon transmits data via Bluetooth, it is usable anywhere in the world.

  • How does Beacon Gen.2 differ from Beacon?

    Kindly be aware that orders made after the middle of November 2023 will be fulfilled with Dronetag Beacon Gen.2. Information about the evolution of Dronetag Beacon can be found here.

    Key improvements in Beacon Gen.2 comprise:

    • Extended battery life, now reaching up to 18 hours.
    • Integration of a High-precision & Ultra-low-power GNSS Ublox M10 Receiver.
    • Transition to a new USB C connector, replacing the previous Micro USB.
    • Removal of the external connector for the Bluetooth antenna.
    • The exclusion of the Extension Port (integration of Professional DJI and Pixhawk flight controllers is exclusively available to Enterprise customers).
