The United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) is conducting market research on potential equipment for participation in the evaluation of next generation of forensic material recognition and identification devices.
The effort is overseen by USSOCOM’s Special Operations Force Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics (SOF AT&L), the Program Executive Office – Special Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Exploitation (PEO – SRSE), specifically the Program Manager – Sensitive Site Exploitation (PM-SSE).
Equipment sought will assist a variety of core missions sets at the Sensitive Site Exploitation (SSE) Exploitation Analysis Center (EAC) to include the ability to identify both organic and inorganic chemistries as they pertain to forensic material recognition and identification (to include narcotics, chemicals, explosives, precursors and other materials) and to assist with attribution to an identity, network or geolocation.
Example technologies include:
- Hidden chamber and hidden material detection
- NRT document/cellular phone translation/gisting
- Removal of GSR positives from explosives detection
- Improved presumptive tactical explosives, nitrates and narcotics kits
- Cellular PIN code bypass or cracking technology
- Improved cellular exploitation middleware
- Improved format exports for presumptive chemical analysis (i.e. Ahura, Hazmat ID)
The information provided may be used by the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) in developing its acquisition strategy, statement of work/statement of objectives, and performance specifications.
