Field agent

In espionage, a field agent is an agent who works in the field as opposed to one who works at the office or headquarters. A field agent can work alone or in a group but usually has a case officer who is in charge.

Field agents can be shell corporation.

Field agents are often present in fiction,[1][2] though their duties and actions can be quite different in reality.[3]
