Posted 19 October 2018 · Add Comment

Marlborough Communications Ltd (MCL), the UK-based military technology company, has achieved Design Approved Organization Scheme (DAOS) accreditation from the Military Aviation Authority (MAA), enabling it to design equipment for UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) aircraft.

Organisations working with the MoD in the design of aircraft systems, associated equipment and airborne explosive ordnance and armament equipment must be assessed by the MAA and have their competencies rigorously tested and endorsed prior to becoming an approved DAOS organisation.

The scheme provides the framework and associated guidance that governs military aviation activity and against which air safety is assessed – requiring accredited companies to record and keep detailed information on all equipment supplied.

MCL is one of very few small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to have achieved DAOS status and was sponsored by the MoD to work towards approval - including undergoing appropriate training - as part of an ongoing contract.

Shane Knight, Managing Director for MCL said: “Being awarded DAOS accreditation is a significant milestone for MCL. It will enable us to grow our business within the aircraft communications systems sector by undertaking our own research and development work, complementing our market-leading position as a vendor of existing cutting-edge military technology.

“We have already begun key projects under DAOS including designing systems for use by almost all Air Force pilots to protect hearing.”
