ConsuNova makes the complex, tedious tasks of safety verification easy, no matter your project’s size, scope or specialty.
Customizable and expert guidance
Our domain-specific senior consultants will assess your project at any stage, from wherever you need, be it onsite or online.
Exceed every standard
We’re Avionics safety masters using deep, hands-on tool, tech, and standards experience to be your trusted advisor at every project step.
Ensure faster, most cost-effective Avionics projects
Set up projects for success. We develop your aircraft Safety Assessment and ensure that all significant failure conditions have been identified and considered, that way you sleep better and your project runs best.
Verify at each step. ConsuNova specialists perform all the necessary steps of Avionics safety analysis, including verification of requirements at each stage of aircraft development.
“Subject Matter Expertise & delivery, of an otherwise dry material, was spot-on. I recommend this course to everyone.”
Gilbert B. | Engineering Manager, Raytheon Technologies
Avionics Safety Analysis for all
Fulfil the right guideline. Our Safety Assessment process helps fulfil key requirements for aircraft certification of international, European (EASA) and US (FAA) regulatory authorities.
Get comprehensive project coverage. ConsuNova conducts and presents every key review, from Preliminary Hazard and System Safety Assessments to System Safety Assessments and Reports.
“The presenters were exceptionally knowledgeable and provided quality presentations and real-life examples. We’ll apply the training to our current certification efforts and enhance our projects.”

ConsuNova’s Primary Safety Analysis Services (based on ARP 4761 or MIL-STD-882)
We perform Functional Hazard Assessment (FHA) is to identify functions, failure conditions of functions (loss of function, malfunction, etc.), and their classification (catastrophic, hazardous, etc.) so that aircraft and system designs may be proposed and achieved.
FHA Output Data includes: Function List , Failure Conditions , Effect of the Failure Condition on the Aircraft, Flight Crew, and Occupants, Classification of the Failure Condition, Verification Method.
PSSA analyses is performed during the system requirements and item requirements phases of the aircraft life cycle. The PSSA is where the proposed aircraft and system architectures are evaluated and defined; this provides the ability to derive system and item safety requirements.
The documents produced during the PSSA are the updated aircraft and system FHAs, updated aircraft and systems FTAs, and the preliminary system Common Cause Analyses (CCAs).
The PSSA is a continuous and iterative process. The SSA verifies that the implemented aircraft and system designs meet the requirements of the aircraft FHA and the PSSA.
ARP 4761 Fault Tree Analysis and event tree analysis are two of the most mature and versatile methods for dealing with probabilistic risk, reliability and availability issues.
Including software in a system Fault Tree Analysis or quantitative hazard analysis is essential in software-heavy systems. Not only does Software fail, it is often included as a mitigation element to hardware failures. A system analysis is incomplete without including the software elements and the interfaces between software and hardware.
Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) is an engineering technique for identification and elimination of known and/or potential problems within a system.
FMEA is an ongoing process that should begin as part of the first design review and continue throughout the life of the product.
ConsuNova experts perform the FMECA, focusing on the critical failures as well the potential failure modes analysis for design and process. ConsuNova will follow FMECA according to the MIL-STD-1629A requirements and process/design FMEA in compliance with QS 9000 guidelines.
