The Daystrom Institute, also known as the Daystrom Institute of Advanced Robotics, Daystrom Research Institute, Daystrom Institute of Technology, and Daystrom Technological Institute,
is a Federation educational establishment that existed as early as the 23rd century, and was based in Okinawa, Japan.

It is considered a department itself within Starfleet. The Institute was named after Doctor Richard Daystrom, who invented the duotronic computer, who and unsuccessfully attempted to create the first multitronic computer. The Institute employs both Starfleet personnel, as well as civilians, who are scientific and research specialists in their fields of study. The movement of Starfleet personnel in and out of this organization is governed by the Starfleet Transfer Regulations. The Institute is also divided into divisions, mostly by specialty.

Several major publications are released each year through this Institution, one of which is the Daystrom Institute Journal, also known as the Journal of Daystrom Institute.

As of 2364, the Institute was in the process of developing a tomographic imaging scanner, capable of multiphasic resolution.

  • In 2370, a device containing this technology was installed on the USS Enterprise as standard equipment.

Several colleges branched off under the Daystrom name, including the Daystrom Institute of Technology on Mars, and an annex on Galor IV.

An area of the Daystrom Institute was dedicated to Self-Aware Megalomaniacal Computer Storage, where "evil" sentient computers could be safely contained and studied by roboticists.

  • In 2381, Ensigns Boimler and Mariner of the USS Cerritos delivered AGIMUS to this facility.
