FOSOV Autonomous and Automated Mobility – Capability Collaboration Event (CCE) – 19-20 February 2020

Request to Attend NLT 10 January 2020

Purpose: SOFWERX in collaboration with USSOCOM PEO SOF Warrior (SW), will host an Autonomous and Automated Mobility Capability Collaboration Event (CCE). The event will explore tactical, SOF Autonomy and Automation Mobility 0-5 year gaps, analyze and define future concepts and prioritize operational use cases which will be used to develop future SOF Autonomous and Automated Mobility requirements.

Methodology: Attendees will work as teams to focus on the operational application(s) of autonomous and automated mobility in a tactical environment. SOF mobility operators will collaborate with invited members of Industry, Academia, Laboratory and Non-Traditional subject matter experts to define current and projected limitations, as well as ways to overcome those challenges of import. Teams will also develop operational use cases designed to identify and challenge future autonomous and automated SOF mobility assumptions. These scenarios will be used to prioritize future SOF autonomous and automated mobility requirements.

Why Should You Participate? The event will be a compelling opportunity for the leading minds in industry, laboratory, academic, and non-traditional autonomous and automated mobility experts to better understand and influence the future needs of SOF Autonomous and Automated Mobility operations.
