    The 75th Ranger Regiment's Regimental Reconnaissance Company is an elite special operations force that has been a member of Joint Special Operations Command since around 2005/07. 

    Based out of Fort Benning, Georgia, RRC is among the premier special reconnaissance units of the U.S. military.

    Originally called the Regimental Reconnaissance Detachment (RRD), the unit was activated in October 1984 with the formation of the 75th Ranger Regiment Headquarters at Fort Benning. The detachment was tasked with providing worldwide reconnaissance and operational preparation of the environment in support of the 75th Ranger Regiment and eventually other units within USASOC and JSOC. The unit is believed to have become part of JSOC due to its extensive training and unique capabilities to conduct special reconnaissance and close target reconnaissance (CTR) operations, and advanced force operations (AFO). Around 2011, the 75th RRC became a Special Mission Unit (SMU), being replaced within the Ranger Regiment by more organic Reconnaissance platoons stood up in each Ranger Battalion. 

    Operationally: Traditionally RRD was divided into three six-man teams, one team to support each of the three Ranger battalions. The unit has three primary tasks: Active Reconnaissance, Surveillance, and Direct Action. While performing these tasks, the teams can:

    • Infiltrate the objective area by parachute (HALO, HAHO, or static lines), helicopter, fixed-wing aircraft, SCUBA, small boat, foot, or other means.
    • Remain undetected in the vicinity of the objective area up to five days.
    • Maintain operational capabilities without resupply for up to 14 days. 
    • Perform reconnaissance operations employing a full range of night observation devices, infrared detection devices, unattended early warning sensors, and photographic equipment.
    • Perform demolition target analysis.
    • Operate small watercraft and inflatable boats.
    • Emplace unattended ground sensors, omni-directional navigational beacons, hand-emplaced expendable jammers, and electronic target designation devices.
    • Collect combat information to satisfy priority information requirements and mission-essential elements of information. Teams report information by use of long-range, secure, burst-transmission communications equipment.
    • Perform drop zone (DZ) selection, marking and reception duties.
    • Report objective area weather conditions.
    • Perform highly selective, limited attacks or ambushes when so tasked.
    • Link up with the main body of a force in an objective area, or escape and evade the enemy in order to return to friendly lines.
