8 SOF Truths Humans are more important than hardware
Quality is better than quantity Special Operations Forces cannot be mass produced Competent Special Operations Forces cannot be created after emergencies occur Most special operations require non-SOF support

9 The SOF Operator On average, he is about 34 years old, college-educated, married and has at least two kids. A thinking athlete – football, track, wrestling or water polo; enjoys games which require problem solving (Chess).

14 J6 / CIO Mission Statement
Install, operate, maintain, and defend the global / expeditionary SOF Information Environment (SIE) in order to provide standards based, interoperable, redundant C4ISR services to garrison and deployed SOF as an enabling capability to planning and execution of pre-crisis activities and on-going global operations.

17 C4 Lines of Operation Expeditionary SOF Information Environment: Global access to network services Governance: Reliability, interoperability, and security through standards C4 Acquisition: Capability where and when the SOF Operator needs it People: World class SOF C4 workforce enabled by life long learning

18 SOF Information Environment (SIE)
The information infrastructure, systems, policies, processes, people, and knowledge that are required to support the full spectrum of special operations activity, from staff functions to war. Extends the GIG to provide SOF-unique mission critical capabilities worldwide, including non-traditional and austere locations (voice, video, data; all classification levels) End-to-end assured communications…transport, services, & data Weapon system – operational effectiveness via life-cycle systems management and programs of record 18

21 SOF Information Technology Enterprise Contract (SITEC)
$250m annual Enterprise IT Contract supporting 54 fixed sites, 5 SOF Strategic Entry Points (SSEPs) and +/- 700 deployed nodes DoD emphasis on performance based contracting drives increased portion of contract into Fixed Price Multi-vendor construct includes six functional areas and 16 qualified vendors Using government/industry best practices and service models to structure contract Moving to performance-based service delivery vice staff augmentation Increasing role of incentives in management of contractor performance (55 SLAs) Mission outcomes Cost control Innovation Requirements for new contract were developed from ground up review through Component IPT Managed by the J61 (ITMO)

22 C4 Challenges Risk understanding; Risk mitigation; Risk acceptance
Power, Weight, Cube Resist the temptation to “develop” IT solutions 85% is good enough Roles and responsibilities in Cyber

23 Keeps Me Awake at Night Hurricanes Freedom of Space
Wondering if IT Efficiencies will trump Effectiveness Remembering we have been at War for eleven years, and SOF Operators are still in harms way

24 What You Can Do Get a MUOS handheld terminal to market
Treat efficient power/battery use as KPPs IT is a Team Sport; make sure you play well with others Treat our networks like corporate proprietary; tell us when you have a breach Understand our business before proposing solutions Expectation Management; don’t sell what you can’t deliver

25 Keys to Success Focus on the SOF Warrior
Understand their requirements  constant communications with Component, TSOC, CJSOTF “6’s”; solicit the “good idea” directly from the field Leverage government and industry best practices / cutting edge technology to satisfy those requirements Manage expectations vice projects Primary obstacles are Policy & Culture – Not Technology Portray User/Business Benefit – Not Technical Capability Cultivate the workforce Commitment to individual training and training budget Certification bonuses and criteria
