USSOCOM conducts Technical Experimentation (TE) events throughout the United States with Government, academia, and private industry representation.
  • TE provides a unique opportunity for technology developers to interact with the SOF community in a collaborative environment.
  • TE identifies potential Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 3 or greater technology solutions, impacts, limitations, and utilities to meet SOF technical objectives and thrust areas.
  • TE is NOT a marketing event or trade show, so send your engineers!
