I found this:





DJI’s remote identification solution, developed in collaboration with industry stakeholders and regulators, broadcasts information from drones directly to off-the-shelf mobile phones using existing Wi-Fi protocols. Using a simple app, anyone within radio range of the drone can receive that signal and learn the location, altitude, speed and direction of the drone, as well as an identification number for the drone and the location of the pilot.

I would like my DJI Mavic Air with this software and the Android app for my smartphone!
My DJI Mavic Air is registered with Belgian government and the ID is in my DJI Mavic Air already...

I'm of two minds about this. I understand the reason, but I also see pitfalls for the operator. I've spoken with a number of people who will hold an irrational view of drones regardless of whether they know the drones are anywhere near them or not, and if they knew the location of the operator they'd seek them out to insert their controller in an orifice it's not designed to be in.

Perhaps if the app was not freely available to ANYONE, but restricted to use by air regulators and the police (especially at outdoor events), that'd be safer?

nothing good about giving general ability the ability to see where a pilot is, hyperfocus on their flying of ther $1800 mavic 2 pro or $3000 - $10,000 inspire 2.. just putting a bounty on you and waiting for someone to take it.

I agree, this app should be only for law enforcement people and not for the general public. All it does is create unnecessary conflict with people who simply hate drones. I fly around my neighborhood and do it legally without infringing on anyone's privacy, but there are those who will now take the opportunity to knock on my door without any basis.
