Appendix D

Engineer Recon

A general engineer recon gathers engineer information of a broad nature within an AO. It considers construction material, resources, and terrain features having engineer applications.

A general engineer recon may be conducted in conjunction with other recons. The Engineer Reconnaissance Report (see Figures D-1 and D-2) will help ensure that all important information is captured.

The Engineer Reconnaissance Report is used to report items that are not adequately covered by other report forms previously discussed in this manual, but one of significance to engineer activities. The following information is included in the report:

  • Heading. Self-explanatory.
  • Key. The key references the item of the report and its corresponding location on the recon overlay. The object's serial number (or critical point number) is entered in this column.
  • Object. Shown by a conventional symbol (see Figure D-3) or a brief written description.
  • Work Estimate. If a work estimate is included as part of the report, enter yes; if not, enter no.
  • Additional Remarks. In this column, report the object's location by grid coordinates followed by remarks, calculations, and sketches. Make this information as detailed as possible to alleviate the necessity for an additional recon.
  • Authentication Block. This is for the company commander's signature block and signature.
  • Work Estimate. The work estimate is on the back of the DA Form 1711-R. Each work estimate is keyed by a serial or critical point number to the appropriate object on the reverse side of the form. Only those columns that are appropriate need be completed. Draw additional sketches when necessary (see Figure D-2).
