USSOCOM to host ISR TE 24-2
On December 8, the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) issued a request for information (RFI) for Technical Experimentation (TE) 24-2 Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR) and Tactical Communications Integration. Responses are due by 12:00 p.m. Eastern on January 8.
The purpose of this RFI is to solicit technology experimentation candidates from Research and Development (R&D) organizations, private industry, and academia for inclusion in future experimentation events coordinated by the U. S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). USSOCOM invites industry, academia, individuals, and Government labs to submit technology experimentation nominations addressing innovative technologies identified in paragraph 4 below. The intent is to provide participants with the opportunity to gain Special Operations Forces (SOF) insight/perspective on participant technologies.
Technical experimentation will explore emerging technologies, technical applications, and their potential to provide solutions for future SOF capabilities.
This RFI is for TE 24-2. This event will occur over the period of one week as shown below.
1 April – 5 April 2024: ISR and Tactical Communications Integration – at Avon Park Air Force Range, FL.
- Technology experimentation events provide an opportunity for technology developers to interact with operational personnel to determine how their technology development efforts and ideas may support or enhance SOF capability needs. The environment facilitates a collaborative relationship between Government, academia, and industry to promote the identification and assessment of emerging technologies.
- The deadline for nomination package(s) is 08 January 2024 at 12:00 Noon EST. After review of the TE nomination submissions, the Government may invite select candidates to demonstrate their technologies at the USSOCOM sponsored TE event. Experiments will be conducted from 1 April – 5 April 2024, at Avon Park Air Force Range, FL. and will explore emerging technology solutions and revolutionary improvements in relevant technologies. Materiel solutions brought to the event should be between a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 3 and 6. Proposed experiments may be conducted between a half day and two days in duration and may be conducted in unimproved expeditionary-like conditions. There is no intention on the part of USSOCOM to purchase or procure equipment based solely on participation in the TE.
- Experimentation Focus: The primary intent of this event is to highlight technologies that support the integration of ISR and tactical communications technologies.
