‘Game-changing technology’ gives war fighters an edge | C4ISRNET

U.S. Special Operations Command casts a wide net in the search for new technologies to give war fighters an edge.

Through its office of Science and Technology, SOCOM has reached out to industry and academia for suggestions on how to deliver wearable, omni-directional antenna technology, intelligence tools that can see through walls to discover hidden spaces, and portable translation devices, to name but a few of the many projects that have emerged in recent years.

With $100 million a year and 30 people on the team, SOCOM Science and Technology is well-positioned to assess troops’ needs and set in motion the research needed to deliver point solutions.
