    The Army-2016 forum will see over 800 Russian and foreign military researchers host some 7,000 exhibitions throughout the week.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian army's scientific research units are going to display their work at the Army-2016 international military-technical forum, the head of the Russian Armed Forces' Military Scientific Committee Igor Makushev said Thursday.

    "They will actively participate in the exhibition, where their new designs will be displayed. Due to scientific research performed by military personnel, within two and a half year, over 20 patent applications have been submitted, some 90 streamlining measures were proposed and over 50 computer program registration applications were accepted," Makushev told reporters.

    The forum, which is the chief exhibition event for Russian military equipment, is scheduled to take place between September 6-11, bringing together representatives from the Russian defense industry, research institutes, universities, R&D companies as well as foreign enterprises.

    A dozen scientific research units exist in the Russian army, Makushev said, adding that those attending the event will have the chance to familiarize themselves with their work.
