Abstract : This report presents the results of an Air Force occupational survey of the Air Traffic Control Radar Specialty (AFSC 303X1). Fifty-seven Percent (N=769) of the 303X1 career ladder personnel completed mob inventory booklets. Personnel were surveyed across various Major Commands, with AFCC and ATC being the largest users. Notwithstanding the exclusion of members assigned to classified units, this sample, including 3-, 5-, and 7-skill level members only, was representative in terms of TAFMS and paygrade distribution. The career ladder is composed primarily of two broad areas: technical (maintenance production element) and nontechnical (management support, staff, and training). Technical jobs within this AFSC show a high degree of similarity in the types of maintenance operations performed (i.e., aligning, troubleshooting, performance checks, etc) regardless of radar system; yet, the wide array of radar system configurations and ancillary equipment in this career ladder were the key differentiating factors among these technical jobs.
