Abstract : The future battlefield will demand an increased ability to acquire, transmit, process, disseminate, and utilize surveillance and target acquisition information. One relatively new source of intelligence information is remote monitoring of the battlefield, using seismic, acoustic, and magnetic remotely monitored sensors (REMS). When enemy personnel or vehicle movement activates these remote sensors, a monitor display located behind our lines indicates the activity. The operator can derive from this display not only the enemy's presence but also such information as direction of speed of convoys and personnel, number of vehicles in a convoy, and convoy composition--e.g., armored versus wheeled vehicles. This publication summarizes ARI research on REMS user problems, including direct operational applications of present and future utilization of REMS. Major findings are categorized into five areas--training, operator aids, operational procedures, REMS system design, and personnel requirements. The appendixes give information in the form of briefs for each pertinent ARI document. (Author)
