Abstract:

The Department of Defense Instruction DoDI 5000.1 instructs Program Mangers PMs to prevent Environment, Safety, and Occupational Health ESOH hazards, where possible, and manage ESOH hazards where they cannot be avoided. Further guidance regarding the prevention and management of ESOH hazards is also provided in the Defense Acquisition Guidebook DAG, Section 2.3.14. This guide focuses on safety and health hazards and supports the overall ESOH risk management tenets of DoDI 5000.2. This Guide should be used in conjunction with the DoD Standard Practice for System Safety prescribed in Military Standard MIL-STD 882. The objective of this guidance is to ensure the design and development of Unmanned Systems UMSs technology that incorporate the necessary safety design rigor to prevent potential mishaps, or mitigate potential mishap risk. OSD directed this safety guidance also consider real and potential Concepts of Operation CONOPS of UMSs and establish fundamental operational safety requirements necessary to support safe operation of the UMS. This guidance provides a generic set of safety precepts and safety design considerations and establishes a starting point toward ensuring safety is a fundamental pillar of the acquisition process and incorporates those necessary design considerations to safely sustain UMSs. PMs for UMS and unmanned variants of manned systems are encouraged to apply this guidance to all UMS acquisition efforts and to all levels and elements of a UMS design system, subsystem, hardware, and software. PMs should address the applicable programmatic, operational, and design precepts defined in this Guide at design reviews to include Critical Design Review CDR. This guide should be used in conjunction with related directives, instructions, policy memoranda, or regulations issued to implement mandatory requirements.
