Technical Services

Our Technical Support (TS) team provide bespoke solutions that cover all aspects of strategic and tactical obsolescence management from proactive Component Monitoring (regularly checking the availability of components and BoM’s), and Obsolescence Mitigation Investigations (conducting investigations to find solutions to obsolescence issues) all the way through to developing and delivering obsolescence management strategies, plans and training.

CMCA(UK) can also provide long term nitrogen storage facilities to mitigate obsolescence risks where the Life Time Buy of electronic equipment is the most economical solution. Any or all of these activities can be performed under the umbrella of our proprietary Assured Total Obsolescence Management (ATOM) framework.

British and French troops arrive safely onto Salisbury Plain, after being delivered to battle by RAF Chinooks, during multinational Exercise Wessex Storm.

Across three days of high tempo activity on both the ground and in the air British, French and American paratroopers demonstrated how they can go by air to battle together.

Exercise Wessex Storm saw the 2 PARA Battlegroup training on Salisbury Plain to confirm its skills and readiness to serve as the lead infantry unit within 16 Air Assault Brigade, the British Army’s global response force.

The battlegroup includes a company of some 150 troops from the French 2e Régiment Etranger de Parachutistes (2e REP) and a 40-strong platoon from the US Army’s 2nd Battalion, 503rd Parachute Infantry Regiment. 

Their involvement is about growing understanding of each other’s capabilities and tactics, to be able to operate together better on any future operations, to be ready to respond together to international crises.
