Use to request authority to plan emplacement of scatterable mines (SCATMINE). IAW unit SOPs or the SCATMINE planning and execution policy, units will prepare and submit SCATMINREQ in enough time to allow the request to be staffed at the appropriate level and approval or disapproval returned to the requesting unit. Once a unit receives permission to plan a SCATMINE obstacle, it must still receive release authority before proceeding. This process is normally given when a scatterable minefield warning (SCATMINWARN) is sent 30 minutes prior to execution and the higher commander acknowledges and approves the release. Once the minefield is in place, a minefield/obstacle report (SCATMINREC) is sent to register the minefield. This is key, as the minefield may be on a unit boundary or beyond the FLOT. Reference: FM 20-32, FM 90-7, and FM 5-34.
