For more than 18 years, Special Operations Outlook has included interviews and discussions with a Who’s Who of former operators and senior and commanding officers throughout the U.S. military, offering their insights on the challenges, missions, and history of unconventional warfare units and possible future developments. The publication regularly includes features on programs, equipment, operations, the history of SOF, and more, written by some of the most respected writers in the field.
Distributed throughout the special operations community via a glossy photo-driven print edition as well as an online digital edition, Special Operations Outlook is the only publication that provides this type of engaging content to a targeted audience of “quiet professionals.”
“The USSOCOM baseline O&M funding increases by $84.7 million in FY 2018; of which, $69.7 million is price growth and $15.0 million is program growth. This program growth includes increases for flying hours, operational support and sustainment for the Multi-Mission Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Systems, civilian pay, audit readiness, CWMD mission support, and Special Operations Forces Liaison Elements (SOFLE).”

America and its allied special operations partners are at the forefront of the Global War on Terror and other conflicts worldwide. Although every member of the armed forces has performed admirably during the conflicts, 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 operations, 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.
Procuring “Special Operations Peculiar” Items:
“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)
Special Operations Outlook will continue where it left off by providing a top-down panoramic look at special operations forces today. Our “Year in Review” features dedicated coverage of SOCOM, Theater Special Operations Commands, AFSOC, MARSOC, NAVSPECWARCOM, USASOC, and a special international SOF review. In every edition, you can expect interviews with top-level SOF civilian and defense personnel, engaging stories on SOF history, and insights into the latest technology available to operators worldwide.
“We are always searching for improvements and relentlessly pursuing our next advantage. Key to this effort is USSOCOM’s approach to requirements validation and acquisition, which allows us to rapidly field resources to those forces actively engaged in the fight.”
– General Raymond A. Thomas, III, Commander, U.S. Special Operations Command
