Distribution of Military Capabilities (rDMC) Dataset

The Distribution of Military Capabilities (rDMC) dataset is a catalog of over 18,000 types of military equipment spanning 173 countries from 1970-2014. This data is sourced from the IISS Military Balance and organized into a machine-readable format, which you can browse or download from this website.

The rDMC project is led by J Andrés Gannon. Funding, research support, and training was provided by the Center for Peace and Security Studies (cPASS) at the University of California, San Diego.
