The Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw)

The Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) and its agencies are subordinate to the Directorate of Equipment (A) at the Federal Ministry of Defense.

The main task of BAAINBw is to equip the Bundeswehr with efficient and safe materiel. Development, field testing, procurement and in-service management of defense materiel are focal tasks of this work. These tasks are partly processed by awarding corresponding contracts to trade and industry and partly by the BAAINBw organization itself.

The spectrum ranges from highly complex weapon and IT systems, tanks, aircraft and ships to soldiers' personal equipment. The BAAINBw is responsible for the entire process from the preparation of technical solutions, the implementation and in-service control up to disposal and recycling of defense materiel – so to speak a “one-stop shop".

The new office will be supported by eight Bundeswehr Technical Centers and Research Institutes. The Naval Arsenal, another agency of the BAAINBw, ensures the operational readiness of the German fleet. A liaison office in Reston/USA will represent the defense technology and armaments interests vis-à-vis government organizations and industry in the United States and Canada.

The BAAINBw is the central technical service provider of the Bundeswehr and an important public customer.
