REMOTELY MONITORED BATTLEFIELD SENSOR SYSTEM (REMBASS)
This lesson will familiarize you with the employment and use of REMBASS.
To know how REMBASS is used for target acquisition, security, and early warning.
Given a sensor string and monitoring set, sensor operator data record, sketch map,
measurement tool, formula, manual monitoring log sheet, and a second-hand watch or digital
To correctly complete sensor activation report without error.

REMBASS is designed to permit continuous monitoring of enemy areas, movement, and activity. It is remotely
monitored and especially suited for terrain surveillance not under friendly forces control. REMBASS use is limited
only by the users' imagination. REMBASS-related applications are considered an advancement in conducting
successful combat operations.
REMBASS are electronic devices which can detect environmental changes caused by intrusion into its detection
range. It transfers the induced physical change in that environment into an electronic impulse, which is relayed to
some type of monitor without the intruder becoming aware he has been detected.
REMBASS is a modular, ground-based, all-weather, day and night battlefield surveillance system that provides
information on activities on forward line of own troops (FLOT) and rear operations readouts. The system consists
of seven readout units. The sensor and radio repeaters are normally hand-emplaced.
The sensors respond to seismic, thermal and acoustic stimuli, and magnetic field changes produced by enemy
activities, for example, moving tracked/wheeled vehicles and personnel. The sensors process responses and
provide detection or classification information. This information is incorporated
