The Defense Technology Promotion Research Institute was newly established in 2021 with the establishment of the Defense Technology Quality Institute under the Defense Agency. It was established in accordance with the enactment of the Defense Industry Development and Support Act and the Defense Science and Technology Innovation Promotion Act, and performs tasks such as supporting domestic defense development and planning, management, and evaluation of defense technology.

The main building of the research institute is located in Jinju Innovation City, Jinju-si, Gyeongsangnam-do, such as the Defense Technology Quality Institute, but uses a separate building, not a floor building. In addition, the Power Support System Research Center in Seoul is located in the same building as the Korea Institute of Defense.
