PAC and Pierce Aerospace to expand UAS Remote ID in Aus/NZ

By Pierce Aerospace | February 23, 2023

Pacific Aerospace Consulting (PAC) Australia has partnered with Pierce Aerospace, a US-based leader in Remote Identification (ID) technology for commercial and government use. PAC has provided aerospace services since 2004, offering core capabilities in Cyber Security, Mission Systems, Information Domain Exchange, and Training and Simulation.

Pierce Aerospace’s Flight Portal ID is a UAS Remote ID technology suite that includes Remote ID receivers, broadcast modules, software, integration capabilities, and remote administration services. Flight Portal ID is a market-leading solution with integration services available for commercial unmanned traffic management (UTM), detect and avoid (DAA), and DoD command and control (C2) and C-UAS systems.

The partnership between PAC and Pierce Aerospace aims to deploy, integrate, and advance UAS Remote ID technology in Australia and New Zealand. The collaboration will also focus on business opportunities such as systems integration, engineering and scientific support, installation support services, and fielding of Pierce Aerospace technologies in the region.

Pierce Aerospace CEO Aaron Pierce said that PAC is a trustworthy and valuable partner to expand their global reach in the UAS market: “PAC has the right capabilities and, most importantly, the right team to deliver innovation, especially as our Defence work expands. They’re a great partner to bring our dual-use Remote ID technology into Australia and New Zealand, furthering our ability to bring trusted capabilities to our Five Eyes partners at a time when old alliances are more relevant than ever. We already have commercial relationships and opportunities for regional integration with Australian C-UAS leaders at DroneShield.”

PAC AUS CEO Lee de Winton explained the importance of early detection and identification between cooperative and noncooperative UAS to protect aerodromes and critical infrastructure and assets. “Previously, when employed as an Air Traffic Controller and Airspace Manager, this was a continual focus to ensure effective battlespace flexibility and integration. Hence, we are looking forward to continuing our support and relationship with the Pierce Aerospace team and bringing awareness and maturity of UAS Remote-ID technologies to the Australian market.”
