Bangalore, June 18 2015: Global provider of software analysis and test tools, LDRA Technology hosted the Embedded Safety and Security Summit (ESSS) 2015 here today, bringing together government representatives, industry leaders, aviation and defense representatives on the issues and opportunities relating to efforts to boost safety and security practices in the domestic market in relation to production and manufacturing capabilities.
The summit also chalked out a concrete action plan to address India’s Safety and Security issues through its ‘Certification Ecosystem Development Program’ (CEDP).
The summit opened with a discussion on “Inspiring Safe and Secure Designs”. Veteran speakers from the industry expressed their views and highlighted the need for an internationally acceptable, systems driven, automated process of Aircraft Certification Management. The process of Systems Safety Assessment plays a major role in overall safety enforcement and hence the consensus was that before implementing complex electronic systems into our defence and critical sectors it was first important to consider the security implications.
Said Ian Hennell, US Operations Director, LDRA: “A world-class embedded safety and security system is the ‘need of the hour’ for Indian companies. This will enable them to recognize and offer compelling solutions on the growth prospects of the embedded safety and security systems in India. It is important for the companies to meet the applicable global regulatory guidelines such that they can then tap into the wider international aerospace markets. ’Make in India’ is a great initiative by the Government of India. This will definitely create immense opportunities for Indian companies to showcase their design and manufacturing capabilities on a global platform.”
Shinto Joseph, Operations and Sales Director, LDRA India:, “ ESSS 2015 has received an overwhelming response, with more than 700 delegates participating in the summit. Enthusiasm among the participants further displayed the need and scope of an international embedded system in India. We have already made headway with the introduction of CEDP, together with premier industry bodies IESA and SIATI. The regulatory, research and development and the academic communities can work to further strengthen their position within the value chain by collaborating with the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative and practicing rigid security and safety policies.”
