Abstract : This is a report of an occupational survey of the AFSC lA5Xl, Airborne Computer Systems, career ladder conducted by the Occupational Analysis Flight, Air Force Occupational Measurement Squadron (AFOMS). This survey will provide current data for use in updating career ladder documents and training programs. AFSC lA5Xl personnel were last surveyed in 1989 (then AFSC 118X0). This career ladder is scheduled to merge with Airborne Radar Systems (AFSC lA5X3) in late 1995. Background According to AFMAN 36-2108 Specialty Descriptions, 3- and 5-skill level members are responsible for inspecting, operating, and troubleshooting airborne computer equipment. These duties include processing, displaying, and testing systems. They also perform preflight and postflight inspections on airborne computer, display, and ancillary equipment and systems. Seven-skill level personnel perform the same technical tasks as the 3- and 5-skill level members. They are also responsible for supervising airborne computer and display systems activities, performing preflight and postflight inspections on airborne computer display and ancillary equipment, and instructing airborne computer systems maintenance personnel in operation, maintenance, repair, and test procedures. Prior to being awarded the 1A531 AFSC, entrants must complete four formal training courses conducted at three different locations. (KAR) p. 9
