The depth of a 20-year foundation of proven experience and established relationships makes CVG Strategy an asset to any organization that has a desire to grow in this challenging global economic climate.  We are committed to excellence and dedicated to providing personalized, high quality service for our clients.  Located on Florida’s Space Coast, CVG Strategy is a SBA 8a Certified Disadvantaged Minority and Woman-Owned Small Business.   Our major subject matter areas include MIL-STD-810 Defense Program Support, ITAR & Export Compliance Training and Programs as well as Quality Management Systems.

In the past few years, our technical writers have prepared over 400 MIL-STD-810 Detailed Environmental Test Plans.   Many customers retain our technical experts to serve as onsite witness at certified Test Laboratories.  In that capacity we have managed over 320 MIL-STD-810 Tests as an outsourced program manager onsite.

Our focus on ITAR & Export Compliance combines the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) and Bureau of Industry Security (BIS) Guidance along with the ITAR & Export Compliance legal support with our partner, The Melbourne Legal Team.    Our Consultants and Advisers provide ITAR Training, ITAR Audits and custom ITAR & Export Compliance Manuals.

When we work with a new client on Quality, we enable rapid implementation.  Everything we do as consultants is processed based, with an emphasis on ISO9001:2015, AS9100 Association of American Railroads (AAR) M-1003 compliant procedures and work instructions.  Our trainers provide Internal Auditor Training, onsite, for our customers.

Product Testing – MIL-STD-810

In the past several years, we have completed over 200 tests for clients.  Many of these were focused on Department of Defense (DOD) product qualification testing (MIL-STD-810), and we have performed Commercial / Aerospace testing as well.  Typically, we begin with the development of Life Cycle Environmental Profiles (LCEP), per MIL-STD-810 Task 402, and use this to generate a master set of Detailed Environmental Test Plans (DETP), per MIL-STD-810 Task 405.
Many customers use our experts to manage their programs onsite at the test lab.  Our easy810 Test Plan Templates, compliant with MIL-STD-810G Task 405, have been implemented by many customers who find their ease of use a great advantage to their test program.
