SOCOM Looking to Fill Niche Technology Gaps | NDIA

Special Operations Command’s technology development enterprise is charged with acquiring items that the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps are unlikely to need.

Its unique set of missions sometimes requires singular tools to help its operators do what they do best.

Still, SOCOM must rely on the services for the basics. As its chief acquisition executive James “Hondo” Geurts put it at the National Defense Industrial Association Special Operations/Low Intensity Conflict conference, “I cannot build an AC-130 without a C-130 from the Air Force and an MH-47 without a CH-47 from the Army.”
