Process Standard for Development and Certification/Approval of Aeronautical Safety-Related Products Implementing AI
This document discusses guidelines for the development of Aircraft Systems leveraging AI capabilities, taking into account the overall aircraft operating environment and functions. This includes validation of requirements and verification of the design implementation for certification and product assurance and guidelines with the assessment of safety. It provides practices for showing compliance with the regulations and serves to assist a company in developing and meeting its own internal standards by considering the guidelines herein.
Rationale: AI as a technology has become increasingly useful for different software applications. As for today, there are no software approval standards that consider AI for embedded aircraft systems. The intent of this document is to cover gaps and provide guidance for this type of technology.
