If standard detection ranges are not available, the principles can be applied to parks, wooded fields, vegetated areas, and urban areas. The following checklist provides suggestions for adapting areas for target detection training.
The range should have more depth than a standard target detection range. The fan of observation should be increased, depending on the degree of camouflage in the area.
Target men should be spaced farther apart in areas having little natural vegetation. Logs, man-made objects, and piles of logs may be needed to add to the number of concealed positions.
For MOUT training, a MOUT site should be used. If one is not available, buildings in a company area could be used with target men or silhouettes.
