An armory license can be purchased from vendors across the galaxy.
Having these licenses in your inventory will automatically allow the Normandy Requisitions Officer in the lower deck of the Normandy have access to supplies made by the company on the license. Though his stock is random, the more licenses you own, the more varied his stock.
There are fourteen licenses in total, and all but two can be purchased from various merchants and vendors in the Citadel. Five licenses are available when you first begin a new game, an additional five become available at level 18, and the last four licenses become available at level 36. The Normandy Requisitions Officer already has access to Hahne-Kedar goods from the start, and unlocking the Rich achievement will give him access to Spectre - Master Gear (leveling up to Level 50 will grant him access to superior gear from that manufacturer), regardless if the game is new or not.
Note: Purchased licenses do not carry through to any new characters created; you will have to re-purchase them each time you play.
