DTRIAC accepts all types of materials for its collection – hard copy documents, CDs, DVDs, films, videos, photographs, etc. Material can be classified or unclassified. In order to facilitate future electronic discovery of these materials, we also encourage you to submit inventory or special ‘keywords or descriptors’ that you would like to have included in the catalog citation.
Upon receipt of submitted materials, DTRIAC personnel review them to establish priority according to:
- Requested reports (technical inquiries)
- Subject Matter Expert (SME) input
- CBRNE effects such as any and all test-related data, nuclear warfare, EMP, systems and components vulnerability, biological and chemical hazards and protection, agent defeat, high explosive effects, peaceful applications and nuclear power, conventional warfare, geophysical studies, engineering physics and chemistry
Priority is given to those groups who provide funding to ensure that their material are cataloged and digitized quickly. Resources are allocated based on funding (Technical Area Tasks (TATs)).
Once items are cataloged and digitized, they are available via STARS-U or STARS-C--DTRA’s online searchable databases. Due to the sensitive data contained on these systems, all users requesting an account must have a final security clearance (minimum of Secret) on file with DTRA. Users must have a CAC or, for non-CAC enabled computers, DTRIAC will provide an RSA SecurID Token.
