Adelard presents at the 3rd Annual Nuclear Industrial Control Cyber Security and Resilience Conference

Prof Robin Bloomfield spoke at the 3rd Annual Nuclear Industrial Control Cyber Security and Resilience Conference on May 23rd 2018. " 'If it’s not secure, it’s not safe' - Security in the nuclear safety case". Robin addressed questions about changes to mindset and methodology, and whether claims, arguments and evidence support or hinder security informed safety cases. Adelard is at the forefront of security-informed safety: please contact if you would like more details of our work in this area or details of the talk.

Adelard delivers thought provoking Safety-Critical presentation to GitHub Tech Community

Safety-Critical systems are prevalent in our everyday life. Yet, despite the increasing use of software in these systems, the tech community as a whole is largely unaware of issues, processes, and standards that reign and govern them. The presentation, ‘Determining Software Safety in Critical Systems’ provides an introductory overview of safety-critical systems, and how the software used within them, specifically, within the nuclear-energy industry, can be assured and verified up to standards that ensure our safety.

Adelard publishes paper on Safety Demonstration of a Class 1 Smart Device

Horizon Nuclear Power intends to build advanced boiling water reactors at Wylfa and Oldbury in the United Kingdom based on the Hitachi-GE (Hitachi) design. In accordance with U.K. policy for new nuclear build, Hitachi, as the reactor designer, is the requesting party to the Generic Design Assessment (GDA), during which the reactor design will be reviewed by the Office for Nuclear Regulation and the Environment Agency. An important step in the GDA process is to demonstrate the viability of the approach developed by Hitachi-GE for the assessment and justification of smart devices. This was done by means of pilot studies of safety class 1 (SC1) and SC2 devices. This paper describes the scope, criteria, process, and approach for the SC1 pilot study and summarizes the results of the study.
