1.1 This standard provides a process by which the intended function of avionics systems may be verified by system-level testing. 1.2 Under this standard, intended function and compliance with safety objectives are shown by functional testing, and not hardware and software design assurance methods. 1.3 The standard intentionally does not attempt to define its own applicability with regard to the type, category, class of aircraft, or criticality of function to which avionics systems verified by the standard may be applied as doing so could ultimately place the language of the standard in conflict with external requirements and guidance. Applicability and limitations must ultimately be determined by the designer, installer, and recognizing body. 1.4 This verification process specifically addresses definition, identification and verification of system functions. Processes conducted under this standard may not satisfy all applicable external requirements; additional review on the part of the system developer, integrator, or installer may be required to meet specific requirements and/or the specified mission of the aircraft.
