Paper Abstract

In times of war, precision targeting of enemy forces requires timely updates of their movements. Overhead assets may be impaired by natural and human origin interference. Internened Unattended Ground Sensors will augmentthe overhead assets and ensure constant, accurate surveillance updates to allied commanders. The emplacement of Internetted Unattended Ground Sensors (TUGS) sensors by Tomahawk deep into enemy territory will allow the destniction of threat forces early in conflict reducing friendly casualties and reducing the enemy's offensive capabilities. Deep delivery of JUGS by the Tomahawk platform will reduce risk to military personneL lower cost, and ensure accuzate delivery to watchdog locations
