The Universal Technological Profile or UTP is a subjective (rating) tool used by societies to try to refine the details of the available technology on each world. Technology, and the benefits it provides, are rarely evenly distributed throughout a population. The UTP defines categories and the range of available technologies.

These codes are represented as the Universal Technological Profile (UTP) Universal Code in the order defined below:

Where each of the codes is as follows:

  • C = Common (x2)
  • Q = Quality of Life (x5)
  • T = Transportation (x4)

The UTP is part of the system of as Universal Codes.
