Research and Development (R&D) is the scientific sub-division of the Enclave and is an interdependent, non-combatant support role subsidiary of the Enclave's Department of the Army.

The division as a whole is charged with conducting all scientific research for the organization and its Department of the Army military by inventing, manufacturing, as well as repairing and upgrading the Enclave's advanced technology as needed.


Performing research and development into new and/or improved technological breakthroughs for the Enclave, they are easily distinguished from the rest of the Enclave's membership because of the sensitive nature of their role, as well as their tendency to don either white lab coats, or airtight environmental bio-hazard suits with Plexiglas visors.


Research and Development appears in Fallout 3[1], and previously appeared indirectly in Fallout 2.[2] [3]
