Description of Services: The Defense RDT&E Online System (DROLS) was developed by the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) to provide online access to its data collection of ongoing DOD research and technology efforts. The system includes citations to reports distributed by DOD. DROLS is used to identify, input, and order documents. The system can be searched by author, source, date, title, subject, project, contract, report numbers, and funding sources.
Data: DROLS provides access to three separate data bases:
  • Research and Technology Work Unit Information System (WUIS) Data Base (containing ongoing DOD research and technology efforts at the work unit level).
  • Technical Report Data Base (consisting of bibliographic records of technical reports submitted to DTIC).
  • Independent Research and Development (IR&D) Data Base (containing contractors' independent research and development efforts shared with DOD). This data base is proprietary and accessible only to classified DOD terminals.
Access: DROLS is an online system that can be accessed through the DTIC central computer system. To subscribe to the online system, contact DTIC at the number below.

The DROLS homepage can be reached via World Wide Web at this URL address:

Hardware/Software: Classified users are required to use dedicated phone lines requiring special encryption equipment or STU-III installation. Dial-up or dedicated access to DROLS is available for unclassified users.
