Technical Reports (TRs)

Technical Reports found on DTIC's public website will only include reports designated as unclassified and unlimited information. Unclassified unlimited and limited information is available through the R&E Gateway.

Notice AD NUMBER begins with: AD0, ADA, ADB, ADP or ADC, followed by digits. The Corporate Source Authority System (CSAS) lists all organizations that have contributed information to any of DTIC's three major databases. Each organization is assigned a 6-digit Source Code used to search these databases for information authored or sponsored by the organization. Each Corporate Author record displays the root (highest) element of the organization, the parent (next higher) element of the organization, any sub-organizations or former names, and the organization's Source Code.
