Reconnaissance and Surveillance Course

Systematic Optical Surveillance (SOS) - 3 days                                                                                                                        

This is a condensed, fast paced course that includes 20 hours of reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition (RSTA) field exercises. Course begins with the most sophisticated targeting sensor, “human visual perception” and develops advanced skills with long range capabilities (1-5km). The SOS course is designed to enable operators to conduct effective observation over large areas of urban, rural and mountainous terrain. 

Course topics:

·         Maximizing visual acuity and optical performance

·         Mitigating visual suppression

·         Controlled optics scanning, detailed search and micro points scanning

·         Long range reconnaissance and surveillance

·         Target distinctness

·         Positive Identification

·         Target acquisition alignment

·         Maintaining observation endurance

·         Tactical fieldcraft and movement

·         Optics selection, accessories and maintenance

Measurable results after SOS                                                                                                                 

Operators demonstrate increased standoff observation capabilities from 100-200% with 26-50 oz. optical systems and 300% with larger systems. During timed exercises, surveillance coverage, threat recognition and designation becomes 3-5 times faster.
