The Arms Sales Monitoring Project
The Arms Sales Monitoring Project (ASMP) seeks to increase transparency, accountability and restraint in the legal arms trade; eradicate the illicit arms trade; and to serve as a repository of data on U.S. arms transfers and arms export controls.
For the past decade, we have reported on the arms trade, U.S. arms export policies, and the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons through the publication of reports and articles, media outreach, and public speaking. Our objective is to get information out to interested journalists, policy makers, and the general public so that many people can act, achieving much more than we alone can.
