Navigating the drone industry requires an understanding of aviation terms and industry-specific concepts which are not common to other fields.
New starters come across a myriad of acronyms and terminology that can be overwhelming in the beginning, and seasoned professionals can sometimes find themselves in doubt of what a specific acronym stands for or requiring more information about an industry concept that's just slightly beyond their area of expertise.
A quick Google search won't always be the easiest way to find what you're looking for, as it is often the case that an acronym isn't necessarily specific to our industry.
This is why at DroneTalks we have started to compile a fully searchable drones glossary, with all of the industry-specific words, concepts, and drone terminology that any industry professional needs to know.
But, this is still a work in progress which is why if we have missed something we would love to know! so please do email our team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We know our industry is a rapidly changing environment so we really appreciate your contribution in helping us keep this free resource up to date.
The first version of the glossary is now ready. We hope this is a useful tool for you!
