The "improvement" to DND 404 would be to merge them with the NDI20. But then we couldn't have 2 kingdoms to run...

Or...and hear me out here...

Do what the Americans do with their Combined Access Card and merge the NDI 20, 404, PKI, door lock, and restricted access cards into one. Have a common card reader/loader that you update as part of your out-routine on your old unit, and in-routine to your new unit.

And just what do you expect the folks to do in those positions? Go back to something operationally useful.? You're just not seeing the big picture Seabass....

The level of coordination that would require between MPs, MSE, SSC, RP Ops and unit USS is completely beyond the CAF's capabilities... would require some sort of National Defense Headquarters to issue direction and orders...
At least on airbases, the folks doing this stuff are Commissionaires.

Take it as you will.
Commissionaires and civvies on the front line, but I have no doubt we could fill a Coy-sized element with all the individual stovepipes of uniformed individuals controlling those cards combined.

That's old tech. The way ahead is smartphone based, 'touch free and COVID Friendly' access, of course :)


The enhanced role of touch-free and mobile access solutions drive a new normal​


The coronavirus has dramatically altered our personal and professional views and expectations about healthy buildings and transmission of diseases in high traffic environments. As a result, “touch-free” is no longer just a catch phrase when it comes to access control solutions.​


Often, the touch-free conversation is tied with the need for mobile access solutions. While the two approaches are not interchangeable, both are ideal choices to reduce hand-to-door contact in high traffic public areas such as office lobbies and entry ways, healthcare facilities, restaurants, schools, and restrooms. When combined, they offer contactless, barrier-free and user-friendly access that assure secure entry, minimize high frequency touchpoints, and reduce the spread of germs.​

Or national / international standards for drivers licenses that do not support virtual cards.

You know

You know they have much more advanced tools for that, right?

Similarly:
The Field Ration Eating Device (F.R.E.D. or FRED) is a small device which serves as a combination of a can opener, a bottle opener, and a spoon. Introduced around 1943, it is issued to the Australian Defence Force in its CR1M ration packs.[1]

It is also humorously referred to as the "Fucking Ridiculous Eating Device".
