Take Away for Commanders
• S&T Strategy will concentrate on engagement and
coordination with SOF user community and PEOs
• Increased focus on leveraging external organizations to
invest R&D on SOCOM gaps and priorities
• Component/TSOC participation in the S&T Council is your
voice in how we spend S&T $$
• SORDAC is developing PEO technology roadmaps to sync
S&T investments with warfighter requirements gaps

Take Away for Commanders
• Advanced Manufacturing (AM) provides Point of Need
empowerment for small distributed units and individuals
• Already in use; SOF problem solvers are making it work
independently at the unit level
• SOCOM can enable enterprise-level AM efficiencies
