Drone security company WhiteFox has announced that drone manufacturer DJI used WhiteFox´s capability to secure drone and operator identity during the United Nations International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Drone Enable 3 traffic management demonstration, the company said.
The demonstration was conducted in partnership with the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Transglobal Secure Collaboration Program (TSCP).
ICAO is a United Nations specialized agency representing aviation sectors from 193 Member States, and setting standards and recommended practices for civil aviation operations around the world. The demonstration was conducted as part of ICAO´s proceedings.
During the demonstration, DJI drones broadcast their identity using the new, proposed ASTM standard for drone remote identification, and were cryptographically verified by WhiteFox cloud services, providing an unforgeable link between the drone and operator´s identity. The standard supports a variety of receivers, including smartphones, laptops, and dedicated hardware, all using widely deployed technologies, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
WhiteFox, headquartered in California, creates solutions that advance drone technology.
