SOCOM Wants A Next-Generation Helmet For Its Coxswains | Task & Purpose

U.S. Special Operations Command is actively seeking partners to provide its coxswains with a new tactical helmet, according to a new federal filing.

SOCOM issued a pre-solicitation notice for a possible multi-year contract on May 12 to produce a “coxswain helmet system” — part of the Special Operations Forces Personal Equipment Advanced Requirements, or SPEAR Family of Tactical Headborne Systems, a broader program that’s been looking into other helmet types for the past two months. This specific notice is for coxswains — primarily Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewmen, specially qualified sailors who operate advanced SEAL watercraft.
