BlueSheepdog Richard and I just got back from the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) in Tampa. The conference has a show floor that we attend every year. This year it was again awash in stealth plane and helicopter mock-ups, mini-guns, tents, rigid inflatable boats, off road vehicles, combat information systems, and sat-com dishes.
General photos of the show floor are prohibited to protect the identities of the many Spec Ops personnel in attendance. I really wanted to get some pictures of all the cool cutting edge hardware, but I respect the operational security of the event.
I got to check out some interesting equipment that may be of LE interest, though. I did get a few pictures. Some items could be photoed by Press with the specific permission of the vendor and barring any image containing attendees. I will share what I found out in the next week or so.
