An aerospace application is a web, mobile, or desktop software application that enables users to design and/or simulate an aircraft. Aerospace applications may also include functionality for aerodynamic analysis and other engineering calculations.
Aerospace is a unique app type with no direct related app types. In fact, there are few truly comprehensive aerospace apps at all. Only NASA has a relatively well-designed app, but it’s not available for public use.
A data capture and negotiation app built for a labor union in the aerospace industry for collective bargaining. Users can use this app to access their labor contract in a way that would facilitate feedback, discussion, and up/downvoting (similar to Reddit) so that the union can understand what is most important to change and what members of the union will refuse to budge on.
Aerospace apps are usually designed to be used in the workplace, which means that they must provide value to every user that has access. The best way for aerospace apps to meet this goal is by creating an engaging employee experience that makes it easier for employees to do their jobs. This strategy can be achieved through gamification, which takes advantage of several psychological principles to get users excited about using the app.
A space application can face legal risks related to intellectual property, liability exposure, regulatory compliance, the satellite technology being used, and national security. You will want to ensure that you have a solid intellectual property portfolio in place before releasing your app. It is advisable to work with legal counsel to determine whether your application is subject to international space treaties or federal export control laws. You will also want to understand the costs associated with satellite technology licensing, maintenance, and insurance.
