The Imperial Department of Scientific and Military Research is a government department and state-owned corporation of the Galactic Empire, responsible for researching the uses of, and developing new weapons, technologies, battlestations, spacestations, warships, and equipment for use by the Imperial Army and Imperial Navy.

The Department has become well known for the construction of numerous superweapons, including the Orange Star, the Eye of Palpatine, the Galaxy Gun, the Sun Crusher, the World Devestator, and the Warcraft. It coordinated and supervised the construction of the Orange Star alongside Federation Fleet Systems, Skywalker Industries, and Youngian Industries. The Department itself produced the steel and quadanium plating, weapons and defenses, superlaser, and barracks of the spacestation.
