Functional safety in accordance with DIN EN IEC 61508

Functional safety of safety-related electronic systems

For ATM, the health of equipment operators and the protection of the environment are top priorities in the design of IT systems. Therefore, ATM applies DIN EN IEC 61508 “Functional safety of safety-related electrical/electronic/programmable electronic systems” consistently. DIN EN IEC 61508 is a standard which offers the developer methods of risk assessment and the safe development and manufacture of products with a safety function.

The standard is intended to establish system security. This means that unintentional triggering can be precluded with a very high degree of probability. In conjunction with the proof of function and the reduction of unwanted side effects, a technology is thus considered to be reliable and manageable for the armed forces.
