2nd Squadron 101st Cavalry conducts reconnaissance and surveillance ISO the development of the Brigade's situational awareness and knowledge in the area of operations. Squadron operations empower the brigade to anticipate, forestall and dominate threats, ensuring brigade mission accomplishment through decisive action and freedom of maneuver.
Reconnaissance and security tasks allow BCTs to achieve a position of relative advantage. Effective reconnaissance and security tasks confirm or deny the commander's and staff's initial understanding and visualization of the tactical and operational situation and further develop the intelligence picture for the BCT to allow the commander to describe, direct, lead, and assess military operations as well as make effective decisions.
