Coalition forces often use Close Target Reconnaissance (CTR) units for the persistent surveillance of potential threats. CTRs track suspect movements through Tagging, Tracking, and Locating (TTL) and Technical Audio and Video systems. Skills are taught in a manner that can be adapted to a variety of operational situations, and courses can be tailored to meet the specific training objectives of our customers.

3 Days of UCP’s Basic Technical Surveillance: This course teaches basic techniques and methodologies for technical surveillance. Students receive basic instruction on planning and conducting technical-based reconnaissance operations and are taught to select gear based on mission profile, configure gear for operation, and employ their strategy without compromise. The course is delivered by our own Former MI5 British Intelligence Agent (MD) 

Training is continually reinforced as each new module builds on skills from the previous module. Specific content is dependent on customer objectives and may include the use of Tactical Audio-Video Devices (TAVs); basic Covert Photography using long lens and standard lens; Tagging, Tracking, and Global Locating Devices (TTL); and basic computer forensic tools. Students are introduced to emerging technology such as smart cameras, remote cameras, GIS technology, and other audio-visual technologies.

Our “crawl, walk, run” approach allows adequate time for the progression of student learning and enhances students’ ability to move from the theoretical to the practical. Practical exercises and workshops build in intensity to develop a comprehensive learning experience
