Abstract: Force protection during military operations is a major concern for every commander. In this paper we present design guidelines and concerns when implementing an unattended ground sensor network for force protection. We define the particular characteristics of physical force protection during peacekeeping, force projection, low intensity conflicts or in general, during peace operations and we highlight a novel wireless network consisting of unattended ground sensors optimised for protecting a deployed force in such an operation unit.
