Starfleet Research and Development (also known as Starfleet R&D or Starfleet Research) was an agency in 24th century Starfleet. This agency was responsible for researching, developing, and testing new technologies. The agency was based out of San Francisco, Earth, Sol Sector. (TNG: "Contagion") In the 24th century, this agency was named on the dedication plaques of Starfleet starships. (TNG: "Night Terrors", dedication plaque)

As early as 2365, standard issue tricorders had a plaque that identified their design model number and place of origin. (TNG: "Contagion") The Mark VI, VII, X, and XI tricorders of the 2360s and 2370s carried this plaque. (TNG: "Contagion", "The Chase"; DS9: "The Muse"; Star Trek Nemesis)

Research FacilitiesEdit

In the 24th century, the Starfleet R&D facility Jupiter Station, in orbit of Jupiter, was a large space station with dedicated holographic labs. In 2361, Dr. Lewis Zimmerman was assigned to this facility and, within ten years, created the Emergency Medical Hologram. In 2373, he was the Director of Holographic and Imaging Programming. (VOY: "Projections", "The Swarm", "Life Line")

In 2366, the Daystrom Institute had an annex on Galor IV. This annex, consisting of several facilities, and their personnel were under the aegis of Starfleet Research. That year, Vice Admiral Anthony Haftel was assigned to this planet and attempted unsucessfully at having Lal, the daughter of Data, transferred to his facilities for additional study. (TNG: "The Offspring")
