Operation Flotsam was an ongoing mission to survey battle sites, examine wreckage and collect potentially dangerous or valuable artifacts.
Created and funded with the passing of the Historical Battle Site Preservation Act, Operation Flotsam operated a varied fleet of old Gallofree Yards transports which carried any acquired debris and used automated SM-series droids to scavenge battle sites. Once debris of interest was located, the SM-series droids worked with DA-series droids to determine its relative value. Collected pieces were then cataloged, vetted by New Republic Intelligence and passed on for processing. The artifacts collected by Operation Flotsam were disabled for security reasons and displayed in the Alliance War Museum on Coruscant.
