Special Operations Command to Buy New Uniforms, Wearable Gear – Blog

Special Operations Command plans to acquire new uniforms and a suite of wearable technologies for its warfighters, a program official said May 25.

After years of fighting in the desert climates of the Middle East, U.S. commandos need to be prepared to operate in the Arctic and the jungle, said Adam Fields, SOCOM’s program manager for survival, support and equipment systems.

“We haven’t been fighting in those areas,” he said in an interview following a briefing on his portfolio at the National Defense Industrial Association’s Special Operations Forces Industry Conference. “It’s going to be different things that we need.”
