STANDARD COLLECTION ASSET REQUEST FORMAT

Asset managers use the standard collection asset request format (SCARF) for intelligence requirements tasking and for requesting information from higher or adjacent headquarters. At corps and division, intelligence requirements tasking is directed toward MI commanders and commanders of other elements of the combat force capable of collecting the information.

Intelligence requirements tasking provides the selected unit with a specific requirement, but not with specific instructions for carrying out the mission. The SCARF tells you--

  • What information is needed.
  • Where to look for the movers, shooters, sitters, and emitters.
  • When to look.
  • When the information is needed.
  • What to look with (in some cases).

JOINT TACTICAL AIR RECONNAISSANCE AND SURVEILLANCE REQUEST FORM (DD Form 1975)

This form is used to request a joint tactical air reconnaissance or surveillance mission. The form states requirements, identifies needs, and, occasionally, specifies the actual air asset to perform the mission.

Any echelon initiates the request. It is used for both immediate and preplanned mission requirements. The requestor completes section 1 of the request for each specific mission. Normally, these requests are transmitted by electrical means. The headquarters receiving the request adds information required to validate or complete the request. Obtain DD Form 1975 through your S1.

MISSION REPORT

Air units include strike or attack, reconnaissance or surveillance, airlift, observation, and helicopter. Air units use the mission report to report the results of all missions and significant sightings along the route of the flight.

The mission report amplifies the inflight report and is normally submitted within 30 minutes after aircraft landing to--

  • The tasking agency.
  • The requesting unit or agency.
  • Other interested organizations.

When the EW air task or mission is completed, intelligence personnel conduct a briefing and submit a mission report.
