Abstract : The DoD In House Research, Development, Test & Evaluation (RDT&E) Activities Report was started in the mid 1960s by the Office of Laboratory Management within the Office of the Secretary of Defense, at the request of the Director of Defense Research and Engineering (DDR&E). The annual report has been produced in official form since 1966. The DoD In House RDT&E Activities Report and database project is the DDR&E's central source of information on laboratory status, and serves four essential purposes: (1) since inception, it has been the only compilation of statistics organized by location on DoD RDT&E Activities; (2) it provides the basis for prompt responses to many general queries about DoD RDT&E Activities, without recourse to special surveys, etc.; (3) it provides a historical database which can be utilized for tracing consolidations and organizational changes, and for special analyses and trend studies; and (4) it provides insight into the technical and organizational environment of the DoD Laboratories and the financial manpower and facility investments made in them.
