What is SOFWERX?
SOFWERX is a platform established under a Partnership Intermediary Agreement between USSOCOM and DEFENSEWERX to help USSOCOM solve challenging Warfighter problems SOFWERX, in concert with the USSOCOM PEO-C4 Military Information Support Operations (MISO), is interested in a translation tool capable of performing near, real-time translations to the English language.
Event Overview: Phase I: 11 June 2019
SOFWERX will conduct a Capability Collaboration Event (CCE) focused on offline language translation tool capabilities. During this event, Warfighters will interact and inform Industry, Academia, and Laboratory partners to further communicate operational needs and/or desirements within the MISO mission(s).
Participation in the event is not mandatory, however, it is designed to provide insights to ensure potential offerors understand the problem set(s) fully and to increase the likelihood of matching their technologies with Warfighter needs. If you do not wish to participate in the Capability Collaboration event, you are free to submit your technology for review in the Capability Assessment Event (CAE). The Capability Collaboration Event (CCE) will be conducted at SOFWERX, in Tampa, Florida.
Deadline to RSVP: June 5, 2019
The purpose of the event is to identify translation devices or Android based applications that are available and/or can be readily available to provide near real time translation of incoming audio to English audio and/or text. The desired end state is a tool that provides a standalone, offline, non-cloud-based capability.
Why You Should Participate:
USSOCOM seeks to enter into non-FAR based agreements with industry partners whose solutions are favorably evaluated by USSOCOM MISO subject matter experts. As such, this event is considered competitive in the same manner as a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) or Commercial Solutions Opening (CSO), and solutions will be evaluated independently of one another primarily for technical merit. This serves dually as notification of the intent to research the feasibility of an agreement under 10 U. S. Code, Section 2371b and/or Section 2371b(f), and as notice of pre-solicitation activities IAW FAR 5.204.
