SOFIC 2019 Recap

SOFIC 2019 Ripe with Innovations

The Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) 2019 was ripe with innovations this year.

One of iDirect Government’s most important events and one of the most critical for the Special Operations Forces community, SOFIC held in Tampa, Florida every spring serves as the premiere event for companies to debut their latest and greatest products and technology.

This year’s conference was no different. Here are some highlights:


iDirectGov President John Ratigan was interviewed by SOFIC TV during the tradeshow on Tuesday to discuss our latest innovations – and he did not disappoint. Watch the interview below:

Innovative Technology

Every year, iDirectGov brings something new to the show floor. This year, we brought not one, not two, but THREE innovations to SOFIC.

Initially debuted at SOFIC 2018, the Tactical Removable Airborne Satellite Communications (TRASC) system made a comeback. This revolutionary product can be rolled on and off aircraft easily, is lightweight and houses our 9800 AR Satellite Router. You can read more about it here.

Adding on from last year, we’ve added an external power supply to our 9050 OM that’s just as tough as the equipment it fuels. Weighing just over 2 pounds, the outdoor power supply extends the uses of the ruggedized unit.

Our Tactical Hub received some new and improved size, weight and power (SWaP) enhancements this year, too. Watch the video below to get the details:
