SOCOM Seeks Lighter, More Flexible Technologies for Small Unit Dominance | NDIA

Special Operations Command science and technology experts had a clear message for industry: across the board, SOCOM is looking for equipment that weighs less, is more flexible and comes at an affordable price.

From optics to biomedical projects, from weapons and munition to ballistic armor protection, SOCOM S&T representatives May 18 shared key areas of interest for fiscal year 2018 at the National Defense Industrial Association’s Special Operations Forces Industry Conference in Tampa, Florida.

Realms of interest include: command, control, communications and computers, or C4, technology; weapons; body armor; biomedical and human performance; optical electronics; and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) products, said Lisa Sanders, SOCOM science and technology director.
