U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) is looking for an electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) camera for the RQ-20A Puma UAV.

SOCOM wants a mature system at technology readiness level of 7 (advanced prototype ready for field demonstrations) or higher, with both a camera and laser pointer, according to the request for information.

The camera must be capable of:

■ Clearly focusing on a target at a slant range of 300 to 1,500 meters without blurring.

■ Detecting the number of personnel and the type and color of vehicles at a slant range of three kilometers.

■ Identifying uniforms and weapons at a range of 1.5 kilometers.

■ Identifying personnel through windows at a range of one kilometer.

■ Identifying vehicle and human features, such as faces and missing limbs, at a range of 750 meters.
