The Science & Technology Directorate focuses on integrating S&T efforts across the SOF enterprise. This includes ensuring that technology opportunities are aligned with technology enablers and developers, ongoing efforts are integrated with transition partners, additional innovation that is required to address S&T opportunities is identified, and disruptive technology solutions are assessed for their impact and potential benefit to the SOF mission set and SOF operator of the future. S&T priorities are aligned with the USSOCOM Commander’s Capabilities and Programming Guidance (CPG). S&T is focusing its efforts on these six Capability Focus Areas: Biotechnologies/ Human Interface; Hyper Enabled Operator; Network and Data Management; Next Generation Effects/Precision Strike; Network and Data Generation Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance/Tactically Relevant Situational Awareness; and Next Generation Mobility.

  • 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.
