"I think reconnaissance deals with gathering information about targets whereas surveillance deals more with movement and coordination of units. "

Reconnaissance looks for new (or more) detail about subject targets whereas surveillance looks for indications of confirmation or change of existing information; hence, its frequent relationship to "movement". NATO defines the two (as taken from the NATO reference: APP-6):

Surveillance. The systematic observation of aerospace, surface and subsurface areas, places, persons, or things, by visual, aural, electronic, photographic, or other means.

Reconnaissance. A mission undertaken to obtain, by visual observation or other detection methods, information about the activities and resources of an enemy or potential enemy, or to secure data concerning the meteorological, hydrographic, or geographic characteristics of a particular area. .

The major difference between passive surveillance and active surveillance is that passive surveillance relies on pre-existing data or data that is usually reported by public health officers or health care providers to health departments while active surveillance involves proactively collecting data from patients or participants from the general population.

In the area of surveillance: Covert surveillance is any hidden equipment or personnel used to watch, observe, or otherwise record people, objects, data, events, or facts. This is in an effort to compile the raw material used to produce intelligence.

You survey land, people, things etc. out in the open. Surveillance would be done under cover or just observing something for a long period of time in the open. Also, a survey is like a poll, a bunch of questions.


covert is in secret, so overt would be out in the open... For example in Surveillance: Covert surveillance is any hidden equipment or personnel used to watch, observe, or otherwise record people, objects, data, events, or facts. This is in an effort to compile the raw material used to produce intelligence. Overt surveillance is when the subject has been informed of the nature and scope of the surveillance being conducted and/or the surveillance devices are clearly labeled and displayed. Obvious

Research is usually very purpose-driven and is set to answer a question by doing something hands-on, such as an experiment or a study. I consider surveillance to only be watching. You may still be answering a question, but you yourself would not do any kind of experimenting as a means to answer that question.
