LUXEMBOURG – The Conference of National Armaments Directors (CNAD) permanent session meeting was held at NATO HQ in Brussels this week. On 25 February 2021, the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA), represented by Mr Robert Elvish, Air and Land Combat Systems Programme Manager, presented its Demilitarization, Dismantling and Disposal (D3) services to the 30 national representatives.
During the session, Mr Elvish briefed on how NSPA can support nations to handle their military assets at the end of their life cycle and highlighted the benefits that Allies can obtain when using the Agency's expertise. "NSPA is committed to make the best of a retirement situation. A priority is to keep D3 financially attractive, while ensuring compliance with various legal obligations. By far most countries have pledged to preserve our planet for the next generations. This responsibility for the future comes with obligations for doing D3 business today", he explained.
