The Hand-Emplaced Sensor Field (HESF) could provide an early warning that dismounted intruders were approaching. The sensors could combine acoustic, laser, and infrared virtual trip wires, infrared imaging, motion, video, biological, seismic, or other technologies. Sensor input could be communicated back to the operator via either wire/fiber optics or wireless communication using a Single-Channel Ground-to-Air Radio System (SINCGARS).
The distance between the sensors and the friendly location would depend on the situation. Sensors would be far
