Each week, Drones in America introduces listeners to guests who are leaders, influencers and experts with insight into America’s drone industry.

On this bonus episode, host Grant Guillot of the law firm Adams and Reese was joined by retired United States Air Force Colonel Dawn Zoldi, who currently is the Founder and CEO of P3 Tech Consulting, which looks to educate people passionate about drones and beyond in policies, programs and more.

Guillot and Zoldi took aim at remote identification, which Guillot labeled one of the most significant developments in recent years for the commercial drone industry.

According to the FAA, remote identification is “the ability of (an unmanned aircraft system) in flight to provide identification information that can be received by other parties.”

While the FAA outlines several perceived benefits of remote identification, including assisting law enforcement, federal agencies and more in identifying unsafe flight practices and vehicles and more robust enablement of safe, secure drone operations, concerns still exist surrounding privacy and more.

Guillot and Zoldi dove into all aspects of remote identification, providing listeners with expert-level insight into its current state, where it could go from here, and more.
