Armaments and Military Equipment

HISTORY OF CREATION OF THE INSTITUTE

In order to provide scientific and technical support for the development, modernization and supply of weapons and military equipment to the Armed Forces and other military formations in the process of development of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the issue of the need to establish a main research institution for weapons and ammunition has been repeatedly raised. Therefore, in accordance with Article 7 of the Law of Ukraine "On the Defense of Ukraine" in 1996, by the Decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 1495 dated December 11, based on the Scientific Center of the Ground Forces and the Scientific Center for the Protection of Precision Weapons, which functioned at the Kiev Land Force Institute and the composition and the structure were not able to carry out a full-scale scientific support for the implementation of military-technical policy in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, a Central Scientific Research Institute Armament and Military Equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was established.
By order of the Minister of Defense of Ukraine of December 12, 1997, No. 52, with the purpose of implementing the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dated December 11, 1996 No. 1495 "On the Establishment of the Central Scientific Research Institute Armament and Military Equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine", the provisions of the Central Scientific Research Institute Armament and Military Equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, organizational structure and number of the Institute.
Having completed the establishment of the institute, the order of the chief of the CSRI AME AF of Ukraine dated July 24, 1997, No. 1. Thus, the date of July 24 as the foundation day of the institute was formed. The Institute began to fulfill its tasks within its authority.
