Special Operations Command is looking for a slew of new maritime technologies that will give operators — including SEALs — a tactical edge during dangerous missions, officials said May 23.

“Power and energy is the one [area] that I think is probably the biggest need common across all the platforms,” John Bailey, chief engineer at Special Operations Command’s program executive office for maritime, told National Defense.

The office — which oversees the procurement of Navy SEAL equipment and special operator watercraft among other maritime platforms — is engaged and committed to finding a safe, high-energy battery or other technology solution that can effectively power up many of the devices and equipment under its portfolio, he said at the National Defense Industrial Association’s Special Operations Forces Industry Conference in Tampa, Florida.
