AeroPing – Drone tracking and e-Identification


There is an increased need for a real-time drone transponder and e-Identification to increase airspace safety, and enable a the future where drones can share the skies with each other and un-manned aviation.

Recognising this need, the UK Science and Technology committee recently recommended that all drones, including existing ones, should be electronically conspicuous within two years. Draft legislation has already been produced to make it law for drones to have a transponder.- AeroPing is the answer.

How It Works

When drone pilots use AeroPing, authorities and air traffic managers can visualise and track drone flights alongside manned aircraft on our AeroTracker interface, which is available on a wide range of devices and is set to be released shortly.

On this interface, airspace managers and drone users can set customised geographical warning zones. When an aircraft is detected inside a designated area, real-time alerts and notifications are displayed on the interface and can be sent to a device of the user’s choice – including mobile phones and smart watches.

Full and comprehensive flight logs are also stored on the AeroTracker interface, which can replay previous flights in full.

Combined with the AeroTracker interface, AeroPing provides a complete solution for authorities and air traffic managers to identify and track drones alongside other forms of aviation in their area of responsibility, whilst providing reassurance, real-time information, and flight logs for drone operators.


Simple and effective

AeroPing operates in a highly independent fashion. It has its own power source and sensors for position, altitude, temperature, pressure, speed and direction. Simply attach it easily to a drone, and it is ready to be used.

Data can then be accessed in real-time by drone fliers and any relevant authorities with the necessary permissions through our AeroTracker platform.
