Abstract:

This study develops a USAARMS position on sensor requirements for light and heavy scouts. Due to ill-defined sensor requirements, the Army has procured sensors for scouts in a piecemeal fashion based on existing technology rather than to meet an identified need. This study examines tactical requirements required warning times, real world terrain Europe and Southwest Asia lines of sight, and atmosphere constraints weather induced visibility levels to derive sensor requirements for scouts. Keywords Scout platoons, Sensors, Terrain, Weather, Operational requirements, Reconnaissance, Surveillance.
