BENEFITS OF AEROPING
DRONE TRACKING AND E-IDENTIFICATION
AEROPING is Compliant with both ASTM F3411-22 and remote-ID legislation as outlined within Japan’s Civil Aeronautics Act 2020.
The module has also been approved by the FAA.
HIGH PRECISION TRACKING ACCURACY USING A GNSS MODULE
SECURE PILOT INFORMATION WITH A RANGE OF 1000M (FURTHER CAN BE ACHIEVED IN IDEAL CONDITIONS)
LIGHTWEIGHT DEVICE – 38G
E-IDENTIFICATION AND 3D LOCATION
REAL-TIME DRONE BROADCAST REMOTE-ID TRANSPONDER
There is an increased need for a real-time drone transponder and e-Identification, to increase airspace safety and enable a 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.
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 or any DRI receiver app of your choice.
HOW IT WORKS
GET REMOTE-ID READY WITH AEROPING & AEROTRACKER
When drone pilots use AEROPING, authorities and air traffic managers can set customised geographical warning zones and 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. The combination of these two solutions provides reassurance, real-time information, and flight logs for drone operators.
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 e.g. mobile or smart watch.
Full and comprehensive flight logs are stored on the AEROTRACKER interface, which can replay previous flights in full, providing real-time information and flight logs for drone operators.
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.

Yes. As an AeroPing device has its own configuration page for entering drone, user and flight details, this information can be amended to suit any drone.
AeroPing can be used with any drone DRI receiver app.
In the UK, for Android phones we recommend ‘OpenDroneID’.
In the USA, for Apple and Android phones we recommend ‘DroneScanner’.
Our AeroPing modules are now in stock. Orders are usually shipped within 2 working days.

As with the original set up, you will need to switch the AeroPing to ‘SET’, access your mobile device Wi-Fi settings, select ‘AeroPing-Config’ and enter the updated details. Once complete, click ‘SUBMIT’ and the new details will override the existing information and be stored in the device settings.
The ‘OPERATOR ID’ field is where you input your pilot ID.
The ‘OPERATOR DESCRIPTION’ field is a free text box, where you type a short description about the purpose of your drone flight.
It is a 21 character alphanumeric field. Special characters will not be accepted.
For example: Photography/roof survey/security
When trying to establish an initial GPS connection, you must ensure the module is fully charged and taken outside, prior to use.
If you’re still struggling, plug your module into a power source whilst connecting to GPS.
