A remote acoustic detection system includes at least one detection unit delivered to a remote or inaccessible location by a missile or other aircraft. The detection unit monitors acoustic events at the location such as aircraft takeoffs and landings and preferably is provided the capability of classifying the events, for example, as to the event or type of aircraft. A sleep mode can be provided to conserve power such that the unit is activated only in the presence of threshold acoustic levels. The unit also includes a wireless transceiver for relaying data to a central monitoring authority, which may be a passing or loitering aircraft. Each detection unit may be provided with an address for allowing monitoring of a network of detection units.
