CMCA(UK) pledge support to the Armed Forces Covenant 
 
The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation to those who serve. It says, we will do all we can to ensure they are treated fairly and not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives. The Covenants 2 principles are that;
  • The armed forces community should not face disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services
  • Special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given most, such as the injured and the bereaved
By signing the covenant, CMCA(UK) is pledging that we are an armed forces-friendly organisation who support the employment of veterans and service leavers. CMCA(UK) already supports current reservist employees with training and deployment and are proud to acknowledge the variety of transferable skills and qualities service personnel bring to the workplace, developed through their military careers. Since the covenant was introduced in May 2011 there has been a huge number of positive changes, but we recognise there is still more to be done to support serving personnel. For more information on the Armed Forces Covenant visit gov.uk. Read more...

CMCA(UK) V-Guard making waves in the Security Industry
  
September and October have been eventful for CMCA(UK), seeing the first batch of V-Guard systems off the production-line and celebrating a successful few days at DVD 2016. The UK’s most prominent Military Vehicles show attracted army personnel and MoD staff alike as well as a plethora of manufacturers from around the world, resulting in exceptional interest in the fully mobile under vehicle inspection system.
 
The event also coincided with the launch of V-Guard’s highly anticipated promotional video which emphasizes its simple set up, ease of operation and effectiveness in streaming secure high definition images to its operator. V-Guard is a mobile ‘checkpoint’ system that can be deployed and operational in seconds with the ability to view and record a vehicles underside providing detailed imagery via a cutting edge HD camera. The V-Guard system can instantly record a driver’s face, store number-plate information in any weather and has a 360° sensor which can scan vehicles at speeds of up to 30mph, while also taking rear and front pictures to enable cross-referencing for ‘blacklisted' vehicles. The entire system is contained in a portable case connected to a tablet via wireless link. Read more...

A team of NATO Codification Subject Matter Experts from CMCA(UK) and our industry partners UKNCB will be visiting MoD Corsham on  1st December for the third session of the ‘Shining a Light on Codification’ Roadshows.

The team will be available to assist with all technical and administrative queries relating to the Codification process. CMCA(UK)’s Codification Director Gary Harman comments, “The goal of organising these roadshows lies in helping Project Teams understand the importance of Codification and the critical role it plays both in terms of its contribution to through life management and in optimizing the size and cost of the DE&S inventory. If we can help them reduce cost by utilizing whats already in place we’ve succeeded”.  Read more...
