Not just for Hollywood anymore: SOCOM seeks long-range facial recognition, other next-gen tech | Navy Times

Facial recognition optics are among the new gadgets special operations forces may soon have in their kits during missions.

U.S. Special Operations Command is inviting members of industry, academia and government research labs to submit ideas for innovative technologies surrounding intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance that could be of use to SOF units.

If selected, participants will be invited to the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center near Butlerville, Indiana, during the week of Mar. 26. There, they will interact with members of the SOF community in order to determine how their ideas could enhance the operators’ needs.
