Abstract : As an essential part of the Army Aviation Accident Prevention Program, System Safety is dedicated to 'before the fact' elimination of hazards from aircraft systems by the application of management, science, and technology principles. MIL-STD-882 gives the general requirements for System Safety Programs. Army experience in attempting to apply the provisions of MIL-STD-882 directly in aircraft development programs has indicated that there is a significant gap between the requirements as stated in the standard and practical, realistic System Safety Program. The statements of philosophy and theory of the System Safety concept in the standard and other System Safety literature alone are insufficient to produce adequate System Safety Programs for aircraft development. The purpose of the report is to identify specific areas of concern which lie between the philosophical and the practical applications of System Safety. (Author)
