This is the home of SOFWERX. SOFWERX was created under a Partnership Intermediary Agreement between Doolittle Institute and the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). SOFWERX has an innovative strategy and business model to speed the connection of cutting-edge research with the minds of returning Special Operations Forces in order to create a high rate of return on technology insertion through the promotion of divergent thought and neutral facilitation.
Finkelstein said he thinks this all points to the fact that not all research needs a program objective memorandum submission or to last three to seven years.
“It’s a switch in culture and belief that we all need to speed experimentation, exploration and assessment sometimes into days and weeks, and not months and years,” he said. “Not all projects fit into this category, but having a type of low budget, low overhead facility like SOFWERX where people are working on game-changing ideas instead of incremental improvement may become a bigger part of our future.”
He said that the success of SOFWERX certainly will rely on partnerships with others like Team Orlando.
“It’s a new mindset. When 99% of the people think that your research is nuts or terribly wrong, you just might be on to something big, and about to make history.”
