Those two kinds of development processes -technological development and war -depend on each other more than ever. The armed forces will use new technologies in armament. The new technologies will change future battlefield fundamentally and will allow soldiers to gain an advantage over the opponent as well as to decrease the risk significantly. New technologies used in conflicts will influence the future security. The aim of the article is to try to predict the use of state-of-the-art weaponry on the future battlefield, based on scientific achievements in the field of state-of-the-art technologies, computer science and electronics. It is synthetic, it is a proposal to look at future armament of potential armed conflicts and war.
