Long Range Surveillance Units (LRSUs) are the most suitable element that the Army possesses for efficient division and corps deep ground reconnaissance. Undeniably, divisions and corps require their own reconnaissance element. Unmanned assets, SOF SR teams, and RSTAs cannot dependably perform this role. LRSUs however are flawed by their organizational structure, ultimately preventing them from reaching their full potential. However, they arguably maintain a solid foundation to refine the future deep reconnaissance units for divisions and corps. This refinement needs to exploit their special insertion skills, passive collection mentality, and unit espirit. Additionally, necessary improvements to this foundation of future reconnaissance units should focus on the LRSU organizational structure and more specifically a consolidation of all LRSUs into one brigade size headquarters. This unifying action will be the key influence for many other modifications. A centralized reconnaissance element will not just facilitate a much needed permanent role of the 'Chief of Recon', but also standardization of equipment, training, education, budgets, and most importantly leader development.
