Special Operations Forces (SOF) operators are among the most elite, and highly qualified individuals in the U.S. military. Extraordinary physical and mental demands are placed upon them, to include superior performance standards, high operational tempos, and the pressure to excel in extreme environments for extended periods of time. In the SOF community, serious injuries are the norm rather than the exception. Further, prolonged stress is proven to cause a variety of mental and physical issues. SOF operators know this all too well. This unrelenting cycle of intense training blocks, pre-deployment preparation, and combat deployments shortens the operational lifespan of SOF warriors. A highly undesirable outcome given the “SOF Truth” that “SOF operators cannot be mass produced”.1 As the demand for SOF around the globe continues to increase, SOCOM will need to invest next-generation technology into its most precious resource: it’s operator’s. We believe that increasing an operator’s endurance, recovery speed, peak performance sustainability, metabolic efficiency, and acclimation to severe environments will lead to an increase in their operational life-span and decrease in the adverse physical and mental effects of life as a SOF operator.
