"I only know what my employer requires me to know. Particularly, about the war between the Gungans and Imperials, the Mauler Camp, and the new Weapon Research Facility that the Empire has established."

The Imperial Weapon Research Facility, also known as the Weapon Development Facility, was an Imperial military research facility on the planet Naboo during the Galactic Civil War.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

"Okay, it's a ways out there. I'll show you on your datapad. Watch out, though. The Empire doesn't want their little secrets getting out, but we'll all know one day. I'm telling you, the truth is out there. Go see it for yourself and you'll believe!"
―A commoner, to a spacer[src]

The Imperial Weapon Research Facility was built by the Empire soon after the Battle of Yavin.[2] It was a top secret and restricted area.[4] It was defended by a garrison of stormtroopers and several AT-STs.[3] A commoner from Kaadara once discovered the Facility while getting lost during a trip from Theed to Moenia.[4] The Naboo noble Roric V`lia and his employee Vaik'anna Silverlight had activities related to the Facility.[2]

Circa 1 ABY,[1] the Weapon Development Facility had become the site of several clashes with Rebel forces.[5]

The superlaser equipped on the Star Destroyer Conqueror was developed at the research facility. Located in the facility were testing bays and fabrication chambers, along with a main control room with computer consoles containing data on the Star Destroyer. It was guarded by the Sith Acolyte Namman Cha at the time.[6] Around 1 ABY,[1] it was raided by the Rebel Alliance's Renegade Squadron, who defeated Cha and gained sensitive information on the Conqueror, which they were later able to use to locate and destroy the vessel.[6]
