ArmsTracker fills the most common gaps in national arms and ammunition control systems by enabling simple, accurate record-keeping and enforcement of weapon laws in local languages. Available only to relevant government agencies, this simple but powerful software digitises arms and ammunition records and can improve import, export, transfer and brokering controls; owner and small arms documentation; stockpile management and seizure capacity.
ArmsTracker enables tracing, reporting, identification, and interagency cooperation. It helps countries to reduce gun-related crime, trafficking, injury and death, reduce the risk of armed conflict and to comply with international arms control treaties and agreements.
Each installation is tailor-made for the relevant government agency to enforce national and regional laws and to complement existing systems. Consultation, customisation and installation is followed by user and stakeholder training and on-going engagement. ArmsTracker continues to be upgraded and optimised, and each update benefits all users.
ArmsTracker evolves and improves as each new government agency installs its own customised version, so far across Africa, Southeast Asia and the Pacific. Join the ArmsTracker Community to take advantage of International Assistance donors, and to fund an upgrade of your national or regional arms control system.
* ArmsTracker software, support packages and future upgrades can be arranged through international donors at no cost to ODA eligible countries.
