As the war on terrorism continues, special operations forces are at the forefront of the conflict worldwide. Although every member of the armed forces has performed admirably during the conflict, no other community has been so well suited to the roles and missions required by this new world security climate.

Special operations forces have traditionally made sure that they “equip the man” and not “man the equipment.” Though this has long been one of the fundamental beliefs of special ops, our nation’s scientists and engineers continue to equip these heroes with the best technology available to increase the operators’ safety and, at the same time, their lethality.

USSOCOM’s FY 2018 budget request continues to invest in technology and SOF-unique capabilities that will sustain ongoing efforts to build the networks and capabilities required to successfully accomplish their mission.

 

 

SOCOM’s Operations and Maintenance Resources are Expended on:

 

“Innovative new technologies are necessary to maintain SOF superiority against emerging threats. USSOCOM continually researches, develops, and acquires new technology to provide the geographic Combatant Commands and future SOF operators with cutting edge technology and capabilities capable of defeating emerging threats.”

— FY2018 Budget Request Overview Book, Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller)
