HDIAC Scientific and Technical Information (STI) Program
The Homeland Defense and Security Information Analysis Center (HDIAC) has the task of actively collecting information assurance/defensive information operations (IA/DIO)-related STI to share with the Department of Defense (DoD), other Federal Agencies, their contractors, and the Research and Engineering (R&E) community. The STI Program is governed by DoD Directive 3200.12, “DoD Scientific and Technical Information (STI) Program (STIP).”
HDIAC currently has thousands of IA/DIO-related documents in its technical repository and with your help the collection will continue to grow. The collection is a combination of classified and unclassified material. All of HDIAC’s documents are uploaded to the DTIC Research & Engineering (R&E) Gateway, which is an online repository of STI from all of the Defense Technical Information Center’s (DTIC’s) Information Analysis Centers (IACs).
Why Contribute to the STI Program?
The HDIAC STI Program benefits the IA/DIO community in a variety of ways. You can assist with improving the productivity of engineers, scientists, researchers and managers in the R&D and Engineering community. Furthermore, your contributions can assist with reducing redundancy and duplication in Department of Defense R&D spending by identifying and providing relevant STI produced by current and historical research, development, and operational activities. Your direct contributions can help us leverage the DoD knowledge base – the beneficiaries are the Government and the taxpayer! With your help the collection can continue to grow. The collection is a combination of classified and unclassified material such as technical documents, acquisition and budget-related materials, technical reports, journal articles, graphics, powerpoint presentations, and more. These documents are available to share with the Department of Defense (DoD), other Federal Agencies, their contractors, and the Research and Engineering (R&E) community.
- All submitted STI is placed in a permanent and protected repository.
- The library facilitates knowledge sharing between diverse groups and organizations.
- The STI is readily accessible to the IA/DIO community within the classification and secondary distribution instructions.
- Saves time and resources for your organization and all authorized users by eliminating duplication of effort.
Research Areas of Interest:
All STI submitted to DTIC should be relevant to IA/DIO research, development, engineering, testing, evaluation, production, operation, use, or maintenance. STI may be submitted as text based documents, multimedia, and rich media files. A few of the topics areas that are already included in the collection are: biometrics, computer network attack, computer network defense, cyberterrorism, hacking, information warfare, network centric warfare, malicious code, product evaluations, and much more.
