North Star Group Developed The Program for iOS, Android Devices
Anybody who's been associated with aviation for any amount of time knows that there is a special language of acronyms associated with almost everything we do as pilots. If you've always wanted a quick, hand-held reference to know what that FAA official was talking about, help may be on the way from North Star Group, a provider of Program Management, Systems Engineering, Acquisition Services, Communications and Outreach Support to the FAA. The company plans to unveil a Free FAA Acronyms Mobile App at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International's (AUVSI) Unmanned Systems Program Review.
NSG says the app is an easy to use, searchable list of many of the commonly used acronyms used by the FAA and the aviation industry. The app is downloadable for iOS and Android mobile devices including iPhones, iPads, and Android hand-held and tablet mobile devices. The app allows users to search an extensive list of commonly used FAA acronyms for their definitions. A special feature of the app's service allows users to submit FAA or aviation industry related acronyms to NSG, which can be added to the app's acronym list. This enables the Free FAA Acronyms App to be a living app updated consistently by NSG and users alike ... one of the first living apps of its kind.
"NSG is pleased to offer its Free FAA Acronyms App as an important tool to assist FAA employees, pilots, government contractors and the aviation industry in searching, learning and understanding FAA's large and growing list of acronyms," said Robert Olsen, NSG Chief Executive Officer. "The AUVSI Unmanned Systems Program Review is an ideal forum to debut our new app as the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) industry is growing rapidly. NSG's extensive program management experience on two of FAA's largest NextGen programs, Data Comm and SWIM, allows us to be a valuable resource to the UAS commercial marketplace." FAA estimates that more than 30,000 private UAS will be in use in U.S. skies by 2020.
