* Technical data means:

  1. Information, other than software, which is required for the design, development, production, manufacture, assembly, operation, repair, testing, maintenance or modification of defense articles. This includes information in the form of blueprints, drawings, photographs, plans, instructions and documentation.
  2. Classified information relating to defense articles and defense services.
  3. Information covered by an invention secrecy order.
  4. Software directly related to defense articles.

"Technical data" does NOT include information concerning general scientific, mathematical or engineering principles commonly taught in schools, colleges and universities, information in the public domain, or information generated in the course of performing fundamental research. It also does not include basic marketing information on function or purpose or general system descriptions of defense articles.
