SOFWERX is USSOCOM’s partnership with DefenseWERX, located in an open-access, off-base facility with a 40,000+ network of agencies, academia, futurists, citizen scientists and industry experts. Activities ranging from technology scouting and collaboration, rapid prototyping, prize challenges and others, connecting USSOCOM with innovators to explore real-time and emerging SOF challenges to evolve and field relevant solutions.  Active engagement with AT&L PEOs and Directorates ensures these solutions are “fast-tracked” and fielded at the earliest opportunities.
