Definition Edit

Area surveillance is

the temporary or continuous observation of a specific prescribed geographic area. . . . This area may include a town, a neighborhood, ridgeline, wood line, border crossing, farm, plantation, cluster or group of buildings, or other manmade or geographic feature. Unlike area reconnaissance, it does not include individual structures (such as a bridge or single building). Ground-mounted surveillance systems are particularly useful in area surveillance.[1]
