A Tactical Unattended Ground Sensor or T-UGS is a deployable motion sensor. It collects seismic, acoustic, radiological, and electro-optic data to track any movement in its range. The T-UGS can track, classify, and identify any target within its range and relay it to across the network in almost real time to a platoon size element of soldiers as an early warning device.

Deployable stationary sensor
If a player crouches or prones within range of an enemy T-UGS, they will not be detected. The player can walk into range of a sensor, get detected, crouch, sneak away and either destroy the beacon or move and ambush anyone nearby who goes to investigate. An attentive player can listen to the device's beeping and pinpoint its location radius.
The actual hitbox of the T-UGS encompasses the lower half of the device. No damage will be done to the T-UGS if the top half is hit. It can be destroyed with few bullets, an explosive, or one single knife blow.
- During BF3 Beta, it was possible to place two T-UGS at the same time.
- T-UGS sensor (without its tripod) is used as the main working part of the Scan Bolt
