Abstract: For several industries, the development of a safety case for the systems they use is a legal requirement. Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) introduces high levels of complexity due to the significant levels of embedded intelligence they include and their highly interconnected nature. Current approaches to safety case development are challenged by CPS. In this paper, we present an approach to safety case development that is applicable to interconnected systems (Systems of Systems) that include human behavior. Although the approach is shown to work well for a military close air support case study, it is not considered adequate for most CPS. The approach is presented, as this may be helpful for those interested in developing safety cases for wellbounded Systems of Systems, but it is considered that further research is required to develop an approach suited to CPS more generally.
