Provides line of sight for commander and draws red dots on the map when enemies are near it. Enemies are also marked with a thin ray. How many you can carry depends on the version the server is running and the server settings. (That's for all things, but it's usually mostly noticable on the sensors). Normally, they dont stack, one of them takes one inventory space. In the old days, when they did stack, you could carry 5 at most (stacked in one inventory space). Sensor placement is vital for the survival of a human team. There is also a limit on how many sensors the team can deploy, namely 15. These can be used even as a distraction to draw enemy fire while your larger units close in. Its really important.
