Legal Case proved to be suitable to use in aviation domain
The Legal Case is the novel methodology for proactive identification and management of the legal issues of new automated systems for aviation and ATM. It promotes the “design according to liabilities” approach, which assumes that legal issues should be addressed in a coherent and comprehensive way during the lifecycle of the technology, so that mitigation measures can be identified and adopted in a timely manner.
Legal Case test applications on Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) and Collision Avoidance Systems (ACAS X) proved that the methodology is easy to use and applicable to different kinds of technologies. In fact, test application on ACAS X demonstrated that the methodology could inform the design of pre-industrialized aviation systems. While the RPAS test application demonstrated that the Legal Case can produce recommendations and advice for RPAS operators to deal with current uncertainty of the European legal framework on drones integration.
We will present the results in the forthcoming ALIAS Conference (5-6 october 2015 - Florence, Italy). Join us!
