Description: MATLAB is a high-level programming language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. This technology is used to analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. MATLAB can be used for a range of applications, including signal processing and communications, image and video processing, control systems, test and measurement, computational finance, and computational biology.

This technology can import and export data. Standard file format functions read data from file formats such as Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, text, images, audio and video, Extensible Markup Language (XML), and scientific data formats.

There are several technologies that are part of the MATLAB product family. The add-on products for MATLAB are not covered in this assessment as they can be purchased, licensed, and downloaded separately. Users seeking to use one of the add-on technologies should seek a separate TRM entry.

This technology is available in five licenses, Standard, Startups, Academic, Student and Home. This entry covers all five licenses.

This technology does not utilize a database to store data as data is stored on the user`s local drive.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This technology has been assessed by the Section 508 Office and found non-conformant. The Implementer of this technology has the responsibility to ensure the version deployed is 508-compliant. Section 508 compliance may be reviewed by the Section 508 Office and appropriate remedial action required if necessary. For additional information or assistance regarding Section 508, please contact the Section 508 Office at Please see reference tab for more information concerning product versions.
