The United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) is a unified military command responsible for overseeing the various special operations component commands of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps, conducting covert and unconventional missions worldwide.


SOFWERX events are utilized to solve Warfighter problems through collaboration, ideation, and rapid prototyping. USSOCOM representatives who are considering using SOFWERX to solve a problem can submit an event request to begin the dialogue. The use of the SOFWERX platform to run/facilitate events is funded via the Partnership Intermediary Agreements (PIA) with USSOCOM. Therefore, in most cases, there is no cost to the requestor(s). Additional funding needs are determined on a case-by-case basis and can be discussed during the planning process. To learn more about various events, please see the descriptions by visiting


The SOFWERX Tech Tuesday Team invites Innovators to submit their game-changing technologies for an opportunity to highlight their capabilities to government stakeholders from USSOCOM, as well as other Government Agencies and Services!
