Australian Army soldiers from 20th Surveillance and Target Acquisition Regiment provide the Australian Defence Force with an artillery spotting and tactical reconnaissance capability, forming a significant component of the entire intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance collection capability available to deployed forces.

20th Surveillance and Target Acquisition Regiment uses the Shadow 200 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), which carries a suite of sensors that includes high-resolution cameras and laser systems. The Shadow UAV patrols high above troops on the ground to provide detailed real-time intelligence about enemy activity and terrain.
