7 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 UNCLASSIFIED7

8 Questions/Discussion UNCLASSIFIED8

9 USOCOM Advanced Manufacturing UNCLASSIFIED9 Vision: Enable the Global SOF Network with distributed use of networked advanced design and manufacturing tools Objective: Empowered units and individuals solving problems and implementing solutions at the point of need

12 USSOCOM Advanced Manufacturing UNCLASSIFIED12 Empower Existing Users Contract Vehicles for Support Licenses and Hardware Focused On-Site Training Portal and Library 1 1 Develop the Workforce Training in Design and Mfg Enable OJT Inform Commanders 2 2 Connect and Expand Echeloned Mfg Tools Software Licenses Strong SOF Network 3 3 Respond and Adapt Avoid Surprise Exploit Developments 4 4 Support the early adopters; learn from them Train Equip and Enable Listen and Support 12

13 Initial Concept UNCLASSIFIED13 Wounded Warrior AM Support Cell Network of Worldwide Customers Network of Capable Enablers ($) Problem Statements Design Ideas Training Needs Other Support Requests Design Solutions Products or Prototypes Training / Guidance Referrals Problem Statements Design Ideas Training Needs Other Support Requests $ Design Solutions Products or Prototypes Training

14 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 ‒ Network ‒ Training ‒ Software Licenses ‒ Equipment ‒ Policy Preparing to address AM support in POM 17 UNCLASSIFIED14

15 Questions/Discussion Backups Follow UNCLASSIFIED15
