The Independent Defence Agency is an Elite:Dangerous player group dedicated to making human occupied space a safe, fun and adventurous environment. We actively patrol and defend community goals and areas which we deem to be "High risk" or highly dangerous to commanders, defending the civilised and innocent against piracy, unwarranted aggression and alien invasion.

Categorised by the superpowers as a militia (and self categorised as a defence agency), the IDA is committed to providing defence to human civilisatio. That said, the IDA is not a law enforcement agency, and must not interfere with individual system laws and rules, and should not take sides during conflicts unless major human rights are breached.

Currently, we are focused on researching aliens and the recent alien sightings. Our forces include several high-tech research and scientific vessels, which are deployed regularly to find and inspect various incidents.
