Due to its nature, the defense industry is one filled with risks. In order to reduce risks and improve safety, it is necessary that there is a safety management system in place that shows if controls are really working as planned, and that helps everyone to follow the applicable safety standards.

The bowtie methodology helps at all levels of the organization with risks being understood, accounted for and integrated into plans and the way that your organization operates.

Various defense customers have implemented our software as part of their Safety Management System (SMS), namely:

  • manufacturers of military technology
  • militaries and air forces
  • ministries of defense
  • regulators
