The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Research and Engineering) releases the annual Unified Research and Engineering Database (URED) Data Call in late summer. All Department of Defense (DoD) components that conduct or fund research and technology development activities are requested to submit research data describing tasks and awards, funding data and demographic information to the Defense Technical Information Center during the reporting period.
The information collected in the data call enables the coordination, collaboration and transfer of technology among the DoD and federal government community. To maintain a strategic, enterprise wide view of the new, ongoing and completed research activities, the database provides a comprehensive view of research and technology development activities across the department.
