From 1960 to 1967, the exhibition of defense equipment was held at Satory Camp, near Versailles, France. It was organized every two years with about 30 French manufacturers. From 1992, at Le Bourget, and after, it became international and held at Paris-Nord Villepinte. “Land Security & Defense International Exhibition” Eurosatory is the current name in 2016.

Many modern and sophisticated off-road military vehicles, wheeled or tracked, are exhibited. Robots are numerous, for fighting, security and surveillance tasks, also to accompany fighters.
