Abstract
The ability of a soldier to detect and identify the enemy is vitally important to the outcome of any mission. This report examines various non-visual surveillance systems that may support dismounted infantry operations. The technologies investigated included acoustic, seismic, magnetic, electromagnetic, electro-optical and radar devices. The range of portability and size options for these systems were also assessed. The review included man-portable, remotely controlled (i.e., unmanned aerial vehicles), and unattended sensor systems with various sensor nodes and multiple sensor types that can be deployed to the area of concern and monitored from a safe location. This technical memorandum summarizes the results of this investigation.
