Remote Identification of drones in Swiss airspace

Remote Identification of drones in Swiss airspace

In September 2019, under FOCA coordination, six industries members of the Swiss U-Space Integration Program (SUSI) tested the ASTM standard for drones identification.
Experts of FOCA, Skyguide, and the drone industry explain why is remote drone identification necessary in Switzerland, how does it work and what are the advantages compared to the current situation.

    Always happy to see our industry partners and the overall global effort of UAS standardization to make future skies safer. Keep up the great work!

    Since it’s talked about "all the drones" at 0:54, which by definition includes all model aviation (planes, multirotors and so on), does this apply to the hobbyists also?
    If so, I would encourage you to take a look at the US and what is going on there. I.e: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfoHqqq14Kk

    so does this system officially add my drone to the controlled airspace, or at least shows it to it’s users ? Because i’m not gonna use it, if it can only be used to "hunt" the dronepilots
