Our Databases

Our Security Sector Assistance Database. Security Sector Assistance (SSA) is a component of U.S. foreign aid that aims to build, train, advise, assist, and even accompany foreign security forces and institutions.

Our Arms Sales Database. Arms Sales are the sale of defense articles or services, either by the U.S. government or an American commercial vendor to a foreign client.

Our Foreign Military Training Database. Foreign Military Training (FMTR) is a part of U.S. security sector assistance, which provides training to security personnel and institutions. On our website, this database is maintained separately from Security Sector Assistance, as we measure it in the number of personnel trained.
