Paper Abstract

UK Government policy is to place the maximum responsibility for quality control with Contractors whose quality arrangements meet safeguards required for the cost effective performance of the equipment supplied. The policy of the Directorate of Quality Assurance (Weapons) is to: undertake, in conjunction with other Authorities and using fully trained personnel, its full responsibility for the assessment of those Defence Contractors of its concern take effective measures to ensure that the contractual documents, drawings and specifications define fully the performance and quality levels required support the development of techniques or test equipments which will eliminate or effectively reduce, the subjective element involved in making a judgment of optical performance parameters or visual standards. In order that the British Forces and overseas customers purchasing UK equipment have fall confidence in the quality of military optical devices the credibility of the Directorates specialist quality assurance advice to Project Management must be well founded and maintained. It is our firm belief that this advice must come from staff having a sound basic training in quality engineering who continue to practise full and independent product audit using test equipment which is both comprehensive and maintained at a high standard of effectiveness.
