Baked he was being sarcastic and making it clear Ironwood sees his actions as justified because he is doing what he sees as the right thing so this what you are trying to say is not at all an actual statement following what ACW was actually talking about.

No there is doubts. Ironwood says he BELIEVES funny how you ignore that. If he had tested it he would say he knows this works instead he uses words that lack conviction and instead make it clear this is an untested machine.
Ironwood: For the past few years, Atlas has been studying Aura from a more scientific standpoint; how it works, what's it made of, how it can be used. We've made... significant strides. And we believe we've found a way to capture it.
No they were convinced to use it because Amber was not a long term solution. You cant keep someone on live support indefiently it doesnt work too many issues. And with the stolen powers being also an issue.
Ironwood: For now. We're using state of the art Atlas technology to keep her stable. But there is a lot about this situation that is... unprecedented.
Funny again how the laid out facts disprove your argument.
They didnt have TIME Baked Ozpin makes this clear he needs an answer shortly you are reading a firm sucess rate when in reality this was a giant gamble and every word phrase and so forth makes it very obvious that it was a gamble.
Ozpin: You have an important decision before you, Miss Nikos. There's no guarantee this transfer will work. And there's no telling if you will be the same person if it does. I advise you to take time on this matter. But understand that before the Vytal Festival is over, we will need your answer.
They really had no choice this was an unique situation as per their own words they didnt know what would happen if Amber died would the power join back up or would it remain split and they would now have 5 maidens out there?
You are reading a lot of things that just arent there and ignoring how the whole thing is laid out to make it clear this is not a proven tested thing its a giant untested gamble but their back are to the wall.
No there is plenty of unsaid mention of Failure you are just choosing to ignore it and change it into something its not. When someone says they BELIEVE also Ozpin aka Ozma who knows more about magic and Aura then anyone besides Salem flat out says there is no gunarantee this will work.
So unless Ironwood is not saying something which is possible but NOT present in the line of dialogue as it currently stands and no the classified he says is not evidence the dialogue flat out disagrees with your argument.
