Detachment

Platoon-sized units such as Detachments are normally commanded by Lieutenants. The Long Range Surveillance Detachment [LRSD] is organized as a detachment organic to the military intelligence battalion at division level (Figure 1-2). The LRSDs are organized into a headquarters section, communications section (two base radio stations), and six surveillance teams. (Light division LRS detachments only have four surveillance teams.) The leaders are airborne and ranger qualified. All other personnel in the detachment are airborne qualified.
