Ensuring system security

Complex systems ensure safety

Functional safety is an important property for complex IT systems and serves to minimise risk. The close interaction between the human as operator, the vehicle and the environment in the military field requires adherence to measures that absolutely guarantee correct functioning and limit any risks. For that reason, ATM does not have an isolated view of device developments for safety-oriented environments.

When designing and programming IT systems and applications, ATM’s top priorities are the protection of the environment, the machine and above all the health of the operators. ATM handles this by applying the functional safety requirements according to DIN EN ISO 61508.
