"All parts of the armor-production chain will be brought under the Imperial Department of Military Research. It will be a lengthy transition; I am placing Everi Chalis directly in charge."
Count Denetrius Vidian[2]

The Imperial Department of Military Research[5] (IDMR)[13] was a government military research agency[2] within the Galactic Empire's military,[11] with its Dark trooper program falling under an Imperial remnant led by Moff Gideon.[14] Engineers within the IDMR often worked closely with the Imperial Security Bureau to create droids and equipment for secret operations.[15]

The department manufactured the armors used by Imperial stormtroopers,[3] as well as the flight helmets worn by the TIE fighter pilots.[5] It also developed IT-O interrogation droids in secret,[7] as well as 9D9-s54 Dianoga spy droids.[8]

In 11 BBY,[1] Quelton Fabrication and Cladtech were merged and brought under the control of Military Research.[2]
