Generating Multiple Unmanned Air Vehicle Safety Certification Artifacts Based on Deep Knowledge

Working with our client, we developed an application that virtually generates certification artifacts automatically for a UAV family of systems with a common ground control station. This newly created database not only saves time, but also money since the database can be used for many different types of UAVs going through the FAA certification process

The Challenge

A manufacturer of defense Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) had a requirement to produce safety artifacts for an existing product line in order to achieve FAA safety certifications. They did not have aerospace safety certification experience
in-house.

The Solution

Our team performed extensive safety analyses focusing on UAV and UAS software and control systems.  Our extensive experience with commercial and military safety and certification processes helped to define the contents of a final report.

A custom application was developed to automate portions of the safety certification process and produced the necessary artifacts required for certification.

The Results

The client can now configure the parameters for multiple UAVs and generate artifacts using the newly created database designed for them.

This process saved the client not only time, because the artifacts are virtually completed automatically; but also money, since the database can be used for many different types of UAVs going through the certification process.
