Passive Counter-Tracking

These are measures taken by a team or individual evader prior to detection and active pursuit by enemy tracking teams. You must consider detection from civilians, accidental detection by enemy and aircraft overflights as possible threats to initial detection that will result in direct contact with the enemy or reporting of the patrol’s presence in the area to enemy rear area security forces. Passive counter tracking should be incorporated into route selection decisions, for example loops into long halts, planned obstacle crossing points, occupation of MSS and R&S, and movement in the objective area during reconnaissance.
