Industry Track

Hyper-Enabled Operator (HEO) in competition focuses on enhancing the SOF Operator’s multi-domain understanding at the edge in support of the Joint Force and Integrated Deterrence. The Joint Acquisition Task Force (JATF) is developing and integrating technologies to deliver cognitive overmatch to SOF Operators working through Partner Forces at the edge in congested, contested, and denied environments. These technologies will enable SOF Operators to intuitively utilize the use information provided by next generation sensors, edge computing, AI/ML, and communication systems to rapidly build understanding; make timely, well-informed decisions; and take actions inside an adversary’s ability to react. The form factor of these technologies will support scalable computing at the edge without compromising the Operator.

  • We are extremely excited USSOCOM selected GSOF to co-sponsor its newly envisioned “SOF Week” in 2023. SOF Week will be a national convention for U.S. SOF and include a more diverse slate of programs, to include professional development sessions, operator-driven discussions, and family-focused conversations. In 2020, GSOF was designated as a National Military Association by the U.S. Department of Defense, and we look forward to working with USSOCOM to make “SOF Week” an impactful event.
