Find Technical Reports

What is a technical report?

Technical reports are designed to quickly alert researchers to recent findings in scientific and technical research. These reports are issued for a variety of purposes:

  • to communicate results or describe progress of a research project;
  • as background information on an emerging or critical research topic;
  • to provide a list of instructions or procedures for current practices;
  • to determine the feasibility of a technology and recommend if the research should be continued (and how to evaluate progress that is made); and finally,
  • to detail technical specifications (materials, functions, features, operation, market potential, etc.).
