Starfleet Research and Development (also known as Starfleet R&D or Starfleet Research) is a division of Starfleet responsible for researching, testing and developing new technologies. Like many Starfleet entities, they were based out of San Francisco. (Star Trek: The Next Generation)

As early as 2361, standard issue Starfleet tricorders read their design model number and identified that they were developed by "Starfleet R&D - San Francisco." (TNG: "Identity Crisis") Throughout the 2360s and 2370s, the Mark VI, VII and X tricorders (both standard and medical) continued to identify their design by Starfleet R&D until the models introduced in 2379. (Star Trek Nemesis)

Starfleet R&D was routinely listed on dedication plaques.
The Communications Research Center and the Warp Technologies Development Group may also fall under this division.

Research FacilitiesEdit

Starfleet R&D maintained a facility jointly with the Daystrom Institute on Galor IV that specialized in cybernetics. In 2366, it was run by Admiral Anthony Haftel, who tried to have Lieutenant Commander Data's daughter Lal transferred to the facility for study. (TNG: "The Offspring")

By the 24th century, Jupiter Station in the Sol system was run by Starfleet R&D, as noted on the station emblem. Dr. Lewis Zimmerman maintained a major Holography lab there where he created many of his major developments, including the Emergency Medical Hologram. (VOY: "The Swarm", "Life Line")
