The IDN was created in July 12, 1976 by the Decree-Law 550 D/76 and was reorganized by the Decree-Rule No. 41 of August 16, 1991.

It had as predecessor the Institute for High Studies of National Defense (IAEDN), founded in December 1967, whose first director was General Luís Maria Câmara Pina.

This Institute was the first in the country to devote itself to the study, research and dissemination of National Defense issues.

Since 1982, The IDN is an integral part of the Portuguese Ministry of National Defense, featuring scientific, pedagogical and administrative autonomy.
