AACE were tasked to produce the full equipment safety case for a trailer-based, mobile, extendable platform to which an Air Traffic Control (ATC) system was to be fitted by a 3rd party.


AACE managed the complete hazard analysis process from Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA) through to delivery of the equipment Safety and Environmental Case Report (SECR). This example may not have been as complex as some other military vehicles or air systems but needed to be approached in a proportionate manner to ensure all the risks associated with maintaining and operating a system with a number of moving parts, including a hydraulically extendable platform, were assessed and mitigated to be ‘As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP)’.

The initial SECR and supporting artefacts were updated as the system was assessed and modified whilst passing through the preliminary and critical design reviews before a hands-on test as part of the Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) programme. Appropriate warnings and cautions were captured in the associated AACE produced technical publications.


AACE supported the reviews throughout the process and delivered assured artefacts and a final SECR to meet the customer’s requirements. AACE has also provided similar safety support for other products on behalf of this customer.

The AACE team took the time to understand the requirement and the complexities associated with the equipment
