CDM has an exclusive department devoted to research work in the field of defence management. This department provides consultancy support to the three services and applies itself in finding optimal and pragmatic solutions to the problems projected by the organizations. Research papers and study reports prepared by course participants and faculty members, offer well analyzed and practical recommendations with time- bound implementation plans for the problems that are projected. The participants are provided an opportunity to tackle live organizational problems through the Project Studies during the application phase of their curriculum. Over the years, the college has built up a rich bank of this research material, which is used by the participants, faculty and other service organisations. The faculty also undertakes editing and printing of all CDM publications. It also publishes handbooks on various management disciplines. These have become popular among practioners in this field.
