On the basis of the agreement settled in 2008 between the Institute of Armament Technology of the Faculty of Mechatronics from the Military University of Technology and Military Institute of Armament Technology, it was decided that once a year both the above-mentioned institutions will be the joint organizers of the International Conference on Armament under the name ARMAMENT, which:
|Institute of Armament Technology
Military University of Technology (MUT)
in Warsaw, Poland
|Military Institute of Armament Technology, Poland|
The idea behind the creation of the ARMAMENT Conference was the integration of the scientific and industrial community working for the Polish arms industry, whose products are dedicated especially to the Polish Army. It was the organizers' desire that the Conference permanently inscribed in the calendar of events promoting scientific achievements and technical thought (especially Polish) in the field of broadly understood armaments and security issues. And it probably happened as the Conference has been consistently developing, gaining many partners and participants from Poland and abroad.
So far, 12 ARMAMENT Conferences on "Scientific Aspects of Armament and Safety Technology" took place in Solina, Waplewo, Pułtusk, Ryn and Jachranka:
In 2014, on the occasion of the Jubilee 10th International Armament Conference, a book entitled "Scientific Armaments Conferences" (editorial office of the MUT Publishers, Warsaw, 2014) was published. The book presents almost a 20-year history of scientific meetings in the field of armaments and security and their achievements manifesting itself in almost 1 100 conference speeches.
