“CPM is a publisher that has been providing thoroughly researched and well-prepared articles for and from the industrial-military environment for years. The well-balanced mix of publications from the SVI, the Bundeswehr, and interviews with people from public offices helps provide an overview and insight on current and future subjects very quickly. In particular, symposia and conferences organised by the publisher, such as the FCAS Summits, have been and continue to be an excellent platform for stimulating active exchange between a wide range of stakeholders on European projects.
