Industry Track

The Program Executive Office for Special Operations Forces Warrior (PEO-SW) is a diverse organization which provides rapid and focused acquisition of Special Operations-Peculiar capabilities to USSOCOM operators conducting decisive ground Special Operations Forces (SOF) activities and global operations against terrorist networks. PEO SOF Warrior comprises 10 Joint Program Management Offices and over 200 military, civilian, and contractor personnel. By cultivating an aggressive, risk-taking culture among acquisition, financial, and contracting personnel, they dutifully and dependably execute every dollar appropriated to develop, acquire, and field critical warfighting capabilities in support of USSOCOM’s five Component Commands. PEO-SW is a critical enabler to SOF AT&L’s no-fail mission to provide effective, wide-ranging, time sensitive capabilities to widely dispersed and often isolated SOF in several unique commodity areas. PEO- SW manages a portfolio that includes 13 programs, 25 projects, 93 Middle Tier Acquisitions, 216 Combat Evaluations, 110 Studies, and 51 CRADAs using an investment budget of over $1 billion of Major Force Program-11 (MPF-11) funds over the Future Years Defense Plan. The portfolio is diversified and includes six primary warfighting focus areas:

  • Ground Mobility
  • Operator Target Acquisition & Visual Augmentation Systems
  • Operator Weapon Systems & Accessories
  • Operator Ammunition/Demolition
  • Operator Equipment, Protection, and Survival
  • Operator First Aid Kits, Medic Kits, and Casualty Evacuation

  • 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.
