James Smith, acquisition executive at the U.S. Special Operations Command, has said SOCOM aims to put an operator into an Iron Man-style exoskeleton next year, Federal News Radio reported Friday.

He noted during the National Defense Industrial Association’s annual Special Operations International Conference held last month that the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit is designed to help enhance warfighters’ survivability, lethality, situational awareness and coordination.

TALOS operators are expected to work as a team in efforts to perform special operations with the use of submersible systems, satellites and the exoskeleton.

Smith added that SOCOM looks to use grants and partnership or intermediary agreements to address the command’s technology requirements.
