DTIC is piloting two innovative search tools designed to provide you more robust search results for the close to 1 million records available on our public site.

Minsky and Dimensions are innovative search platforms using natural language processing tools to better analyze your specific search parameters. These powerful tools allow you to discover relevant connections and insightful information to analyze the DoD science and technical data available in new ways, giving you a more dynamic experience on our platform.

Check them out and let us know what you think using the feedback button below.
