SOFEX – Collaborate Directly With App Developers

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Operators can interface directly with Special Operations Apps at SOFEX located 1 & 2 November at Ft Bragg to suggest new apps.

“SOA is attending SOFEX to allow SF Operators and SF leaders to let us know exactly which Apps they need — immediately,” said K. Dominic Cincotti,president and founder of Special Operations Apps. “No other company in existence produces Apps specifically with SF Operators in mind,” Cincotti said.

“The SOA Apps process works this way: Former Operators like David Mullins, an SF Operator on four continents throughout his career, translates needs into task orders for the SOA development team,” Cincotti said. “That team includes Dr. Craig Hunter — who has already won Best App honors in the Apple Store — and Samuel Thompson, who worked on NASA’s unmanned Mars exploration, before working on SOA concepts and solutions.

Among the SOA apps on display at SOFEX are CamoScience HD — the application that now integrates the high-definition video of the Apple iPhone 4S for camouflage on demand, executed direct to garment and for next-generation adaptive concealment, known as GEOINT Camouflage.

SOF Operators will then be able to purchase and use the Apps they suggest through the beginning in 2012.

SOFEX – RMJ Tactical

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

RMJ Tactical keeps striving to increase cutting power while minimizing weight and overall size. It’s a fine line to balance these requirements and these two new tomahawks are their latest models.


The Jenny Wren is a traditional name for the Wrens you see all over the South and it’s namesake is a no-nonsense tomahawk. Developed at the request of Recon Marines looking for a tomahawk with the same weight of a fixed blade knife. You can see its straight forward design and the intent here was to harken back to a simpler, more straight forward time (think WW II).

On the other hand, the Crow is a more aggressive design with an angled handle to force the brunt of blows to make contact at the top of the blade rather than the more traditional chopping style seen on many axes.
