The Engineer Advanced Reconnaissance & Search Platoon (EARS-Platoon)
The Engineer & Search Advanced Reconnaissance Platoon (EARS-pack) 11 Luchtmobiele Brigade , is part of the Airmobile Engineer Company and consists of a command group, two Advanced Search Teams (AST) and two Engineer reconnaissance groups. The EARS-Team aims to provide engineer support and reconnaissance and delivering Advanced Search capacity (maneuver) units.
The EARS-Team is the only one of its kind due to its diving capacity and because the reconnaissance groups must operate behind enemy lines, it is important that they can defend themselves so they train for contact drills on land and from the water.
