• This is a decrease of $X million from 2013 levels.
• SOCOM funding through 2018 has a flat X% compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Mature technologies and proven services will be the focus.
• Operations and maintenance (O&M) is the largest spending category with $Xmillion requested for 2014 with a flat X% CAGR through 2014.
• Much of SOCOM’s individual and team equipment as well as training is provided by the service components that contribute forces. In addition, existing DoD-wide platforms and systems are utilized as much as possible, often with upgrades or modifications.
• Reflecting the dominance of O&M funding, the multi-purpose application area is the largest segment at $X million in 2014 with a X% CAGR through 2014.
• In 2012, SOCOM awarded $X million throughX prime contracts to X companies. Lockheed Martin was the top SOCOM firm with $X million in new prime contracts.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Overall SOCOM spending will be stable, despite overall US government budget pressure.
2. Spending for COTS-based computing, networking, and collaboration tools will increase.
3. Repair, maintenance, logistics, training, and ground mobility vehicles are priorities through 2018.
4. Defense industry consolidation and partnerships with allied nations will accelerate.
5. The technology focus is on incremental size, weight, and power (SwaP) product improvements.

Market Overview

• This research service is an overview of program funding and contract activity for the DoD SOCOM activities.
• The mission of SOCOM is to provide fully capable Special Operations Forces (SOF) to defend the US and its interests.
• SOCOM is also responsible for synchronizing the DoD planning of global operations against terrorist networks.
• Individual military service departments provide most of the equipment, logistics, and training utilized by SOCOM service components. That funding is not included in this research.

Market Definitions

• The research service forecasts do not include classified programs and budgets. A substantial amount of the total SOCOM market information is not accessible to the public.
• Program funding is derived from the DoD 2014 budget request and includes designated portions of overseas contingency operations (OCO) funding. Contract data is based on the 2012 calendar year.
• SOCOM systems inherent in new-build tactical ground vehicles, ships, and aircraft platforms are included if distinctly specified by program, contract, or contract modification.
• Program funding and contract values do not always align year-to-year, due to a combination of administration costs, multiyear contracts, and technology use across segments.
• Program and contract segmentation, with funding forecasts beyond 2014, are made at the analyst’s discretion.
