1 1 MASTER GROUND SIGN AWARENESS

2 So what am I looking for?

3 “ absence of the normal; presence of the abnormal ” (what ’ s missing / what ’ s new) Look out for the following indicators: COLOUR – Unnatural colours or colour change. The difference in colour will depend on the length of time since emplacement, often clearer hrs after emplacement. TRANSFERENCE – Soil, sand, foliage and other debris deposited in places where nature would not cause it to be. REGULARITY – Geometric shapes and strange angles which do not naturally occur.

4 FLATTENING – Foliage, grass etc flattened by humans/animals reflects the light at a different angle. DISCARDABLES – Items left visible by the INS when placing IEDs such as cigarette butts, bits of wire or tape. DISTURBANCE – Movement of soil, breaking of foliage and placing of items in an unnatural way to attempt to cover sign. “ absence of the normal; presence of the abnormal ” (what ’ s missing / what ’ s new)

5 Some examples: REGULARITY (and some COLOUR change) DISTURBANCE

6 Some examples: REGULARITY & DISTURBANCE FLATTENING VOIED

7 Some examples: ??

8 Some examples: FLATTENING DISTURBANCE COLOUR Change REGULARITY STONE MARKERS BATTERY PACK PRESSURE PLATE

9 PRACTICE There ’ s now a chance to practice looking for the Ground Sign in a number of pictures. Not all the pictures actually have Ground Sign in them – the first two slides are an example of one with and one without – the answer is revealed each time on the next mouse click. The phrase ‘ No known indicators ’ is used for pictures without Ground Sign – because we don ’ t know for certain that there was nothing there. In other words, if you see something that you think is suspicious in a picture then you are not wrong. After the two examples there are two presentations with 20 pictures each – the first is easy the second is more difficult. For each picture you should identify any Ground Sign before clicking for the answer.

10 ABCDEF A Marker stones placed by LNs to warn of device Example One – Identify any Ground Sign. State the Grids it’s in.

11 ABCDEF A No known indicators Example Two – Identify any Ground Sign. State the Grids it’s in.

12 PRACTICE ONE EASY!
