Over 60 natural-size samples of machines, including water craft and 11 samples of aircraft, will be presented to experts. The exhibitions will be visited by the official delegations of defense agencies from eleven countries.

Participants will present the results of implementation of the NATO standards in the manufacture of military products and high export capacities of Ukraine’s military-industrial complex.
