The Tarkin Initiative was a secret think tank within the Advanced Weapons Research division of the Imperial Security Bureau.[3] Founded by Governor Wilhuff Tarkin,[1] it gave birth to both the first and second Death Star battle stations.[10] Officers within the Initiative, like Director Orson Krennic, were guarded by Imperial Intelligence's death troopers.[3]

At some point, the Tarkin Initiative also constructed the assassin droid BT-1 in one of their bases. The droid, however, was revealed to be homicidal, wiping out everyone at the base and then self-destructing the base itself. It was at some point before the secret mission to Geonosis found by Doctor Aphra, who after adjusting the droid's behavior and activating it, put it under the service of Darth Vader.[1]

The logo of the Tarkin Initiative was a hexagon representing a stylized faceted kyber crystal.[3]
