Covert Communications and SurveillanceNC Scout AKA Brushbeater, is our guest for this Tuesday, September 18, 2018 show. NC Scout’s communications training activities are unique. As far as I can tell, no one else in this country offers the type of hands-on “in the field” covert communications and surveillance courses. I am signed up for his Battlefield Surveillance & Intelligence Collection Workshop in November.

The two-day beginner’s course is RTO Basic and it teaches students the basics of communications at the Team or Squad Level in the field. He covers identifying equipment requirements, writing a signals operating index, pace planning for communications, basic equipment capabilities, traffic handling, improvised antenna types, uses and construction, setting up and running an nvis hf station, message formats, setting up and communicating from a hide site.

The two-day RTO Advanced class picks up where the RTO Basic Course leaves off, covering advanced techniques for tactical communications in the field. Points of instruction include, Advanced SOI planning including creating a brevity matrix, planning and coordinating a dedicated transmitting site, theory, construction and use of directional wire antennas, recognizing and mitigating signs of Electronic Warfare, conducting basic Signals Intelligence Collection and analysis as well as Advanced HF Techniques.

Signals Intelligence & Radio Reconnaissance, also a two day course covers the essentials of signals collection and analysis in an asymmetric warfare environment. Course specifically focuses on building skills to better prepare a retreat or small unit for intercepting and exploiting an OPFOR’s ground communications. Students learn communications mapping of your area of operations, common, off the shelf tools for Signals Intelligence, planning and construction of listening posts, Radio Direction Finding (RDF) techniques, signals interception and analysis, coordinating with an Analysis and Control Element (ACE) and tactical exploitation.

His other training includes; Tactical Combat Casualty Care and Recon and Surveillance Team Course as well as his First Line course which focuses on core woodsman skills. But wait, there’s more!
