UARC's are organizations affiliated with universities or colleges that are established by the Department of Defense (DoD) to maintain essential research, development and engineering "core" capabilities; maintain long-term strategic relationships with their DoD sponsors; and operate in the public interest, free from real or perceived conflicts of interest.

UARC's receive sole source funding (UARC contracts) from DoD under the authority of 10 U.S.C. Section 2304(c)(3)(B) in order to establish or maintain an essential engineering, research, and/or development capability. GTRI UARC DoD primary sponsor is the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) located at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.
