FAA Punts On Anticipated UAS Remote ID NPRM and Rulemaking to Protect Critical Infrastructure

Key Points

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has delayed the anticipated release of two Notices of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), which are vital to the safe and expeditious integration of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).

The NPRM for Remote Identification and Tracking has been pushed until December 20, 2019, and the NPRM required under Section 2209 of the 2016 FAA Extension, Safety and Security Act, which would protect certain sensitive fixed site locations from UAS operations, has been delayed until September 2020.
