SYS aircraft ID in traffic display

What is a SYS  label followed by a number ( e.g. SYS23) aircraft ID in other traffic display through pilotaware? Some aircraft show their call sign but I have several aircraft symbols with a 'SYSxx' label. Does it mean they have not filled in the aircraft registration in the  pilotaware system?

Yes, helicopters should be shown with an appropriate symbol in SkyDemon. If they are not, it means their ADS/B output hasn't been configured with the correct airframe type.
