A mobile application developed by the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence at Fort Huachuca is having a far-reaching impact – recently debuting at the nation’s Capitol.

The Manual for Courts-Martial mobile edition or “MCM-Mobile” application was referenced and put into action March 13 during a Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Personnel hearing.

During the hearing captured by C-SPAN, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Missouri, told senior military legal officials she is familiar with the Uniform Code of Military Justice contained within the MCM.

“In fact, on the advice of an Army JAG, I actually downloaded it on my iPad and now have it as an app,” McCaskill said.

At the request of the Fort Huachuca Staff Judge Advocate, USAICoE’s Learning Innovation Office worked with the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s School in Charlottesville, Va., to develop and field the MCM mobile application for use in the military justice system.

“The app has been extremely well-received,” stated Lt. Col. Sean Mangan, Criminal Law professor at the JAG School and designer of the application. “It’s being used by judge advocates throughout the Army, from junior counsel to senior legal advisors.”

Leanne Rutherford, LIO chief, said in-house development of the MCM-Mobile application was a three-month project from start to finish.

“This product’s return on investment has grown exponentially,” Rutherford added. “In a time of declining resources and fiscal uncertainty, it becomes obvious the potential savings LIO can bring to the entire Army.”

MCM is a combined procedure and law manual that is used throughout the armed services including the Coast Guard. The consolidated book includes rules of evidence, identification of crimes, procedures for courts-martial and reference material.

For more information on the MCM product or others developed by the organization, contact Michelle Austin, LIO project manager, at 520-533-7140 or michelle.l.austin20.ctr@mail.mil.
