This position is located at an Air National Guard (ANG) Air Control Squadron (ACS). The purpose of the position is to deploy, install, integrate, operate, optimize, recover, maintain and repair various types of Theater Air Control radar systems and subsystems and provide continuous radar systems operations in support of ACS daily operations, training, and readiness missions. Incumbent is responsible for planning, coordinating, and directing mission accomplishments and training requirements of the Radar Systems section.
(1.) Deploys, installs, integrates, operates, optimizes, recovers, maintains, and repairs radar systems, sub-systems and components. Ensures that complex air control radar systems are operating at specified technical order (TO) standards and mission requirements. Independently validates operational readiness of complex radar systems for accurate height, range, and azimuth. Validation determines if corrective actions are needed to return the equipment to established tolerances.
(2.) Integrates and maintains various subsystems such as transmitters, receivers, Digital Target Extractors (DTE), Theatre Missile Defense processors (TMD), Identification Friend or Foe (IFF), Situation Display Console (SDC), Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) and Electronic Counter Measures (ECCM). Radar systems, sub-systems, and components range from older analog microwave technology up to computerized digital technology.
(3.) Utilizes an extensive variety of Test, Measuring, and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE) to analyze, evaluate, test, calibrate, modify, diagnose, and perform corrective repair to assure the integrity of assigned equipment. Interprets highly complex electronics diagrams and schematics for determining the cause and leading to the repair of equipment malfunctions.
(4.) Performs site surveys and uses sophisticated engineering analysis tools (e.g. Falcon Look, and Radar Coverage Predictor) to generate placement and configuration documentation depicting radar coverage and radiation patterns. Notifies appropriate agencies of possible Radio Frequency (RF) radiation, interference or other hazards. Develops, formats, and reviews both internal and external after-action report documentation. Provides direct customer support which includes field testing and recommending new equipment, site surveys, training, resolving problems related to configuration management, systems functionality, hardware and software configuration, and system conflict resolution.
(5.) Coordinates frequency requests with installation spectrum manager or other agencies to de-conflict frequency assignments when required.
