MODERN TECHNOLOGIES AND THE MODERNIZATION OF THE POLISH ARMED FORCES, ROBERT KRZYSZTOF ŁUKAWSKI
The article presents the systemic solutions in the area of the process of acquiring military equipment adopted by the sector of national defence. A constructive criticism of certain elements of these solutions is presented as a result of the activities of the Inspectorate for the Implementation of Innovative Defence Technologies (I3TO). The article discusses the issues concerning the organizational model developed by I3TO and the set of tools used by the staff of the Inspectorate. The I3TO's opinions on the role of technology, including key and breakthrough technologies in the weapon system, links and relationships between actors involved in the development of new solutions, form also a background to indicate the role and achievements of the Inspectorate in identifying interesting technical solutions from the defence point of view, initiating research projects and implementing the results into practical solutions in military equipment. The role of the adopted classification of technology readiness levels (PGT) is shown. Issues related to the management of intellectual property rights have also been pointed out. In conclusion, reference is made to the need to develop a consistent model of the system for the acquisition and use of military equipment applicable throughout the sector of national defence.
