Opportunity for international collaboration on information advantage
In an event run by The United States Special Operations Command, participants can share their innovative ideas and gain insights from operational personnel.
Dstl is promoting an invitation from The United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) for international collaboration.
Industry, academia, individuals, and government laboratories are invited to submit technology experimentation nominations addressing innovative technologies identified in areas of ‘Information Advantage/Information Dominance’.
The event aims to give participants the opportunity to gain Special Operations Forces (SOF) insight and perspective on participant technologies.
USSOCOM 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 US Government, academia, and industry to promote the identification and assessment of emerging technologies.
USSOCOM Technical Experimentation event 23-3 will be held at the Emerging Technology Institute, Red Springs, North Carolina, from 5 to 9 June 2023.
The theme for this event is Information Advantage/Information Dominance.
The primary intent of this event is to assess innovative technologies that will provide SOF increased capabilities in these areas.
