"Czerka trained the rest of the galaxy."
―Common motto in the exploration community.[src]

Survey and Development was a division of the Czerka Mining Corporation which was one of the most prolific scouting divisions within corporate bodies of the galaxy.

As it was one of the best known corporate scout division, it was responsible for charting new worlds with the company later being responsible for selling colonization rights to planets discovered that the corporation did not want. Many first generation scouts actually were trained from the Czerka program and brought their experiences with them. As such, they pioneered the many standard protocols that were adopted by other scouting organizations over the years with Survey and Development demonstrating how scouts handled business.
