Directorate of Acquisition Agility
BioMs. Kelly Stratton-Feix, Director, Acquisition Agility, provides USSOCOM Program Management and Oversight of SOFWERX, the innovation platform chartered to close the gap between operators facing SOF’s toughest challenges and “non-traditional” sources of new, novel, and provocative solutions. SOFWERX is USSOCOM’s partnership with DefenseWERX, located in an open-access, off-base facility with a 40,000+ network of agencies, academia, futurists, citizen scientists and industry experts. Activities ranging from technology outreach and collaboration, rapid prototyping, prize challenges, etc, connects USSOCOM with innovators to explore real-time and emerging SOF challenges to evolve relevant solutions. Active engagement with AT&L PEOs and Directorates ensures these solutions are “fast-tracked” and fielded at the earliest opportunities.
