The Institute for Systems, Informatics and Safety (ISIS) of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre has recently signed a licence contract with Infocon, an Italian company specialised in tools for reliability and safety analysis, for the distribution and maintenance of the ASTRA software package, a Windows toolset for system dependability analysis.

ASTRA is a user-friendly software for Fault-Tree Analysis (FTA), a design methodology widely applied for the investigation of possible causes of system failures. Originally applied to high-risk sectors such as aerospace, nuclear and chemical, FTA is now also being applied more widely in sectors such as services, transport, manufacture of consumer goods and information technology.

ASTRA is the result of experience gained by the ISIS over the last twenty years in industrial design applications for safety and reliability analysis. Its target market includes SMEs active in consultancy and in support in the field of reliability, safety and risk management.
