MOSTI Raw Data for Research and Sciences (RADARS) was developed by Ministry of Science, Technology & Innovation (MOSTI) through Malaysian Science and Technology Information Centre (MASTIC) in 2019.
The majority of data listed in RADARS is freely available for public, provided that the user complies with all the terms and conditions set by the data owner. However, there is also a small number of limited data such as the latest satellite images, radar and satellite data where users need to apply directly to the relevant data owner and may be charged according to the specification of the requested data.

The development of RADARS is also one of the key milestones under ‘MOSTI Initiative 2019/20’ entitled ‘Sharing of ministry’s data and equipment’.
The collection and management of raw data in RADARS are done by designated coordinators from agencies and departments under MOSTI. Each raw data is classified according to research areas listed in the Malaysian Research & Development Classification System (MRDCS 7th edition).
