Science and Technology

The Department of Defense science and technology (S&T) program consists of projects funded by the basic research, applied research, and advanced technology development budget activities of the department's research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E) budget. The scope of DTIC's scientific and technical (S&T) collection covers all areas of defense research, including biological and medical science, environmental pollution and control, and behavioral and social science. The collection also contains Department of Defense (DoD) directives and instructions, budget information, conference and symposia proceedings, patents and patent applications, and other topics of interest to the defense community.

You can search our public collection by selecting the appropriate collection in the search box found in the top right corner of this website.

R&EGateway

The R&E Gateway helps the defense S&T community build on past work, collaborate on current projects, and avoid duplication of effort. With better connections within DoD, the development and delivery of technologies to the armed forces can be accelerated. The R&E Gateway provides the means to connect the acquisition enterprise (DoD Labs, Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs), Program Executive Offices, Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics (AT&L) and Combatant Commands (CCMDs)). In an access controlled environment, all of DTIC's unclassified assets, tools and community interaction capabilities foster innovation, competition and identification of solutions. DoD conducts research at its 60+ labs, in the FFRDCs, DTIC's Information Analysis Centers (IACs), through contracts and grants, and across seventeen distinct priority area communities of interest; this work is available through the R&E Gateway. In addition, the R&E Gateway offers access to official defense scientific and technical information, collaborative tools, and subject matter experts. The Gateway helps the defense S&T community build on past work, collaborate on current projects, and avoid duplication of effort. With better connections within DoD, the development and delivery of technologies to the armed forces can be accelerated.

Budget Tools

DoD Budget Tools DTIC publishes searchable congressional budget data shortly after its release and offers both public and access-controlled sites to review and analyze DoD research and engineering funding data. The Center posts reports from the House and Senate committees that oversee the DoD budget information. DTIC posts this reformatted budget data within days of its release on the CONGRESS.GOV legislative information website operated by the Library of Congress. The budget data is thoroughly checked prior to posting, ensuring its accuracy and reliability.

    DoD Investment Budget Search (R-2s and P-40s) (formerly Research and Development Descriptive Summaries (RDDS))
    This database furnishes the Department of Defense (DOD) investment budgetary/narrative information from the President's Budget (PB) Submissions or Justification Books. Investment budgets include both Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) and Procurement. RDT&E programs are described on R-2s and identified by Program Elements (PE Numbers). Procurement programs are described on P-40s and are identified by Line Item Numbers.

Defense Innovation Marketplace

The Defense Innovation Marketplace provides a one-stop resource for the Department's Acquisition and Science and Technology professionals on information about industry's Independent research and development activities. The first application of Defense Innovation Marketplace is the new Independent Research and Development (IR&D) database. Defense Innovation Marketplace will allow input of Industry IR&D projects and display the results in several formats to registered DoD users.

Information Analysis Centers (IACs)

The IACs are research and analysis organizations chartered by the DoD and operated by the DTIC to help researchers, engineers, scientists and program managers utilize existing Scientific and Technical Information (STI). They establish and maintain comprehensive knowledge bases that include historical, technical, scientific, and other data and information collected worldwide. IACs provide tactical relevance through direct connection to the Warfighter, and strategic value through long term trend analysis and recommendations. Products such as State-of-the-Art Reports (SOARs) provide a detailed analysis of immediate, critical challenges, while technical inquiry services offer a direct connection to a vast network of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from across government, industry and academia.

IACs also work directly with customers on Core Analysis Tasks (CATs) and Technical Area Tasks (TATs), both of which yield new STI. They also collect, maintain, and develop analytical tools and techniques, including databases, models, and simulations, and provide research and analysis services to customers with diverse, complex and challenging requirements. The Cyber Security & Information Systems Information Analysis Centers (CSIAC) is one of three Information Analysis Centers (IACs) sponsored by the DTIC. The current IACs and their technical domains are listed on the IAC website: http://iac.dtic.mil/.
