A U.S. Marine with Ground Sensor Platoon, 3rd Intelligence Battalion, III Marine Expeditionary Force Information Group holds an Electronic Transmitting Unit II remote sensor during a patrol on Camp Hansen, Okinawa, Japan, Dec. 10, 2019. The ETU-II uses a camera to detect any presence within its field of view, takes a photograph and sends it to a computer in a separate location. This allows Ground Sensor Platoon Marines to monitor an area without being physically present. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Staff Sgt. Matthew J. Bragg)
