SOCEUR and SOCAFRICA have operational control of Special Operations Forces (SOF) in their geographical areas, and are responsible for force readiness, targeting, executing and assessing and SOF military strategy. They are actively engaged in irregular warfare missions, counterterrorism and overseas operations as part of approved plans from the Secretary of Defense.
MacB will research, analyze and deliver studies and assessments to advance defense system-related scientific and technical information through the application of resources needed to achieve mission requirements. Research and analytical support will contribute to the planning, programming and assessment of SOCEUR and SOCAFRICA to ensure that resources are applied effectively to create the desired outcomes.
The MacB mission systems team will provide the following scope of services:
- Produce country studies of the 52 nations in the USEUCOM Area of Responsibility (AOR), and the 54 nations in the USAFRICOM AOR
- Conduct assessments on topics impacting USEUCOM and USAFRICOM, and develop analysis and reports on special operations initiatives
- Ensure digital data flow between Contiguous United States (CONUS) organizations and special operations elements
- Design and manage websites and data portals
“We are honored to have been selected to support and contribute to this very important mission,” said Fred Norman, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Mission Systems Group (MSG) at MacB. “This win expands MacB into two Theater Special Operations Commands (TSOCs), and showcases our ability to analyze and provide theater technical expertise to meet their unique special operations requirements. This TSOC contract directly compliments our recent USSOCOM Wide Mission Support award, and MacB’s focus to support global SOF requirements. We’re now poised to grow our European footprint, and showcase quality and excellence for our SOCEUR and SOCAFRICA customers.”
