The Data and Analysis Center for Software (DACS) is one of several U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) sponsored Information Analysis Centers (IACs), administered by the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC). It is technically managed by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and operated by a private contractor under a long-term DoD contract.
DACS is chartered to collect, analyze, and disseminate information relating to the software domain to the DoD Software Engineering community, which includes defense contractors and the academic community. DACS serves as an information broker, identifying resources that exist within the global community and making those resources available to the community through outreach venues such as an information-rich web site, technical reports, technical journals and a variety of services offered free of charge.
Additionally, DACS, like all DTIC managed IACs, is a contract vehicle that serves the DoD by expediting the process for DoD components to acquire the services of commercial and academic providers to accomplish technical area tasks.
