U.S. Army Special Operations Command is looking to kit up the 75th Ranger Regiment’s dogs with new vests, cameras and sensors.
To do that, USASOC is seeking proposals for multi-purpose gear that can be issued to the 75th Ranger Regiment’s regimental dog program, according to a statement of work posted Wednesday.
The Rangers’ regimental dog program trains multi-purpose canines and their handlers in support of Ranger combat operations around the world. While most military working dogs are trained for specific tasks, the multi-purpose canine is intended to mirror the versatility of their special operations handler.
The statement from USASOC reflects that versatility, asking for proposal packages that include tactical vests, cameras and sensors to be worn on their dogs, while still keeping the animal light and lethal.
