Keeping your expensive UAV asset safe when under test in the air – and
keeping ‘time to market’ as short as possible – is not just about ‘reaction time
on the sticks’.
It’s much more about understanding the machine’s capabilities, its design limits, mission
parameters, primary systems, components, the assembly methods, production environment, flight
test plans and skills of those building the vehicle.
A complete understanding of these things allows us to understand the inherent strengths
and weaknesses of the vehicle and its testing regime. This in turn allows us to avoid
placing the vehicle in situations that would unnecessarily compromise it's integrity,
unless, of course, those aspects were under test.
So, any relationship between us would start with an exchange of information. We will set
out in overview the information that we need to best help you accelerate your programme
by minimising the risks to the UAV and its development programme.
We would then hope to receive an outline brief, insofar as is permissible, that responds
to our information needs.
We accept and respect the fact that there will be aspects of the design and programme that cannot be shared.
This then allows us to understand those critical areas that will require a special
focus from us and, maybe, to identify possible opportunities for risk mitigation and
any process improvements.
Put simply - the more we understand, the more risks we can help to mitigate.
