1.1.2 Defining the operating environment
Assurance objective: Define the environment in which the RAS will operate.
Assurance objective: Define assumptions relating to the environment in which the RAS will operate.
Contextual description: The environment in which the RAS operates will determine the hazards associated with the RAS. The definition of the environment must be correct, and remain correct throughout the operational life of the RAS to ensure the definition of the hazards and hazardous behaviour for the RAS remain valid. Defining the environment may require assumptions to be made, and these assumptions must be included in the definition of the environment. The continued validity of the operating environment definition and assumptions may need to be monitored through-life, this is addressed as a separate consideration.
