Federal NOTAM System (FNS) Obtains FAA In-Service Decision

April 1, 2013

On March 27, 2013, the FAA’s Federal NOTAM System (FNS) was provided an In-Service Decision by the Federal Aviation Administration’s Deputy Chief Operating Officer. This significant milestone authorizes the FNS system’s operational use in the National Airspace System (NAS). The FNS program was developed under the guidance of FAA’s AIM Directorate.

CGH Technologies, Inc., a D.C.-based woman-owned small business, was the principal contractor involved in the design and development of FNS. The CGH team members designed and developed the FNS technical system from the ground-up. This monumental achievement puts the United States as the global leader in the development and deployment of digital NOTAM systems. This modern system provides a one-stop-shop for the collection, management and distribution of NOTAMs, replacing the current legacy system, which was developed for the teletype world and has been in existence for more than six decades.

CGH’s team received numerous awards for the design and development of this enterprise class software that plays a critical role in the NAS. This includes the award from the Association for Enterprise Information (AFEI), an organization renowned for its work in supporting the advancement of enterprise information environments for the CIO community through industry/government collaboration. AFEI presented CGH with its Excellence in Enterprise Information Award for 2012, citing CGH as the organization that demonstrated, in the opinion of the AFEI judges, the best application of technology and leadership to improve enterprise performance. Other awards include the ones from Computerworld, SmartCEO and Excellence.gov.
