Military Vehicle and Vessel Audit Systems and Military Vehicle/Vessel Development Costs.

Systèmes d’audit des véhicules et navires militaires et coûts de développement des véhicules / navires militaires.

1. Fleet Costs.

  • Advice for Military.
  • The value of Military Vehicles/vessels that are to be sold will be increased if the vehicle(s)/vessel(s) have been comprehensively audited.
  • Do not buy used military vehicles/vessels for your Military applications unless they have been independently audited.
  • New Military vehicles/vessels that have been extensively modified for you should always be subjected to a complete independent audit and inspection.
  • I advise not to take delivery of any military vehicle/vessel new or used until they have been audited and fully inspected.
  • An audit will ensure supply chain and cost control as well as ‘storage care’.
  • An inspection of the spare parts and the vehicle/vessel supplied will ensure condition and field reliability, fit for purpose and ‘ready to go.
  • The same can be said for Emergency and Security Service Vehicles/Vessels.
  • Military and Emergency Vehicles that are kept stored until needed should be maintained and kept to a maintenance standard which includes scheduled procedures to ensure that the vehicle or vessel is not damaged by being incorrectly stored.
  • It is important to store vessels in such a way that long-term damage does not occur.
  • Military and Emergency Vehicles/Vessels/Motorcycles that are no longer required have many applications. An audit will provide you with a list of options that will reduce the cost of dispersal and may even create a new revenue stream for you.
  • Partnership Options should be considered with Private Industry when specifying a new design. The possibility of a new revenue stream can exist for commercial sales developed from a Military specification.
  • La valeur des véhicules / navires militaires peut être augmentée à la vente si le (s) véhicule (s) ont été audités de manière approfondie.
  • N’achetez pas de véhicules / navires militaires d’occasion pour votre application militaire, sauf s’ils ont été audités de manière indépendante.
  • Les nouveaux véhicules / navires militaires qui ont été largement modifiés pour vous doivent toujours être soumis à un audit et à une inspection indépendants et complets.
  • Je conseille de ne pas prendre livraison de tout véhicule / navire militaire neuf ou d’occasion tant qu’il n’aura pas été audité et entièrement inspecté. Un audit garantira la chaîne d’approvisionnement et le contrôle des coûts ainsi que les «soins de stockage».
  • Une inspection des pièces de rechange et du véhicule / navire fourni garantira l’état et la fiabilité sur le terrain, adaptée à l’usage et «prête à l’emploi».
  • Il en va de même pour les véhicules / navires des services d’urgence et de sécurité.
  • Les véhicules militaires et d’urgence qui sont entreposés jusqu’à ce qu’ils soient nécessaires devraient être entretenus et conformes à une norme d’entretien qui comprend des procédures planifiées pour garantir que le véhicule ou le navire n’est pas endommagé par un entreposage incorrect.
  • Il est important de stocker les navires de manière à éviter les dommages à long terme.
  • Les véhicules militaires et d’urgence qui ne sont plus nécessaires ont de nombreuses applications. Un audit vous fournira une liste d’options qui réduiront le coût de la dispersion et peuvent même créer une nouvelle source de revenus pour vous.
  • Les options de partenariat doivent être envisagées avec l’industrie privée lors de la spécification d’une nouvelle conception. La possibilité d’une nouvelle source de revenus peut exister pour les ventes commerciales développées à partir d’une spécification militaire.

Development and Dispersal Costs. We have to adapt – The World does not stand still. How can the Military reduce costs of its Fleet be it Ground, Air, Sea or even Space?…..The Answer begins with two words Partnership and Control.

Lets put a scenario together. President Trump wants the U.S Military to continue to be the Number One Military Force in the World. However, he does not have the available budget to ensure that the U.S maintains the tenuous World Peace that exists in the World in 2020 . It is unlikely that in its present form that the United Nations Security Council is ever going to be a truly independent force for Peace. China and Russia are working together with the view that Climate Change could provide an opportunity for their ideologies to be more available in the World and are using economic ‘persuasion’ to spread their military umbrella. The President knows the value of the Peace dividend but has to counter an emerging Federalist movement within Nato and Europe which does not favour the ‘cost of the U.S hand of friendship’ .

How will the President increase the Military capability of the U.S without diverting funds from Capital Investment Funding ie roads, bridges etc and the increasing cost of the equality of Social Justice yet still find the funds for Federal Disaster Relief funding that is increasing year on because of Climate Change?

DARPA have become a black hole and there are areas of concern emerging as to who is really in control of DEPRA’s funding. I suggest to President Trump that he looks at the possibility of Business Enterprise Units working within the Military but in partnership with them to explore and initiate Private Enterprises using the Military platform to capitalise on the U.S Military expertise in a wide range of industries. Ummm the President says. Pack your bags there is is a Plane on its way. lol. The principle is that for vehicles the benefits are obvious, can be calculated and will add a revenue stream that was not available to offset the cost of Military renewal. This is not a Humvee Exercise. This is a Unit within a Military Command whose sole function is to make money using the Military Platform and without compromising Military Response and Operational Readiness. However, BIS will report to the Military and a constant auditor. This also provides a path for servicemen and women leaving the Military and ensures the U.S is making ‘Made in the U.S.A
