DROID (Digital Record Object Identification)

As stated on the project’s wiki, “DROID is a software tool developed by The National Archives UK to perform automated batch identification of file formats. Developed by its Digital Preservation Department as part of its broader digital preservation activities, DROID is designed to meet the fundamental requirement of any digital repository to be able to identify the precise format of all stored digital objects, and to link that identification to a central registry of technical information about that format and its dependencies.”  The wiki has downloads and documentation.
