YEREVAN (ArmRadio)— ArmHiTec-2016, the first international exhibition of Arms and Defense Technologies, opened in Yerevan on Thursday. The exposition features advanced weapons and military technical equipment, security systems, special police equipment, military aircraft, and more.
“Drones and three types of unmanned planes have been developed, constructed and are being used by the Military Aviation Institute. They are competitive on the international market and are no worse than other similar products,” said Daniel Balasanyan, Head of the Military Aviation Institute.
“The Armenian military production industry has enough novelties and all opportunities of becoming a locomotive in the field of high technologies,” Defense Minister Vigen Sargsyan said in his opening remarks. He urged all local producers, representatives of the scientific field, leading students of local and foreign higher educational establishments to spare no effort to outline the framework of their involvement in the army-society link.
Sargsyan hopes the exhibition will contribute to the expansion of international military-technical cooperation and the development of the military production potential of the participating countries.
