Abstract. Studying and analyzing the world’s promising areas of technological development of the armament and military equipment (AME) field is an urgent task of ensuring comprehensive long-term planning for the development of military equipment, organizing scientific research, strategic planning for the development of the national armed forces and ensuring the national security of the state. The method of determination of perspective directions of technological development of the field of armaments and military equipment on the basis of patent analysis is presented in the work. Patents play an important role in building entrepreneurial strategies and protecting intellectual property (IP) rights in technology companies. Using patent information can reduce R&D time by 60% and reduce their cost by 40%. The Patent Landscape Report provides a snapshot of the patent situation in a particular technology or company, in a particular region, country or globally. Using this methodology and Derwent Innovation database, which contains information on more than 116 million patents from 52 world patent bases, a patent landscape was built on the basis of the International Patent Classification (IPC) and the world technological trends of the research area, including both military technology and dual-use technologies. The article presents the most promising areas of technological development of a military nature, which include aerospace, information and communication technologies, technologies for communication and image transmission systems, vehicle traffic control systems, smart, intelligent, high-energy hypersonic weapons, ammunition with several warheads, and individual security systems, etc. Ukraine’s place in this process, unused reserves and threats are shown. The conclusion is drawn about the formation of science. Intellectual property analytical materials were provided, and definition was given.

Keywords: intellectual property analytics, inventions, forecasting, technology mapping, armament and military technology, patent landscape, patent information, promising technologies, national security.
