Abstract : This is a report of an occupational survey of the Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems (AFSC 2E8X1) career ladder completed by the Air Force Occupational Measurement Squadron (AFOMS). These data will be utilized to review the AFMAN 36-2108 Specialty Description and training documents. The last OSR was published in February 1991. As described in the AFMAN 36-2108 Specialty Description, dated 31 October 1993, personnel in this career ladder perform and manage design support, installation, calibration, testing, operation, maintenance, and repair of instrumentation and telemetry facilities, systems, equipment, and related subsystems. They also monitor, analyze, and direct performance checks and measurements of instrumentation and telemetry systems to ensure acceptable performance. Entry into the career ladder currently requires an Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery Electronic score of 67. The sequence of operational training for this AFSC begins with attending a 119-day Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems Apprentice Training Course conducted at Keesler AFB MS. This includes 74 days of electronics principles. This course curriculum includes training in assembling, installing, adjusting, and maintaining mechanical, electrical, and electronic equipment used to monitor and collect flight test range data and to measure the performance of test and research projects; strong emphasis on the practical application of electronic principles and use of electronic schematics; adjustment, calibration, and malfunction analysis of instrumentation and telemetry components; and familiarization with Air Force technical orders, manuals, directives, and other maintenance publications. The course uses electronic fundamental trainers, transmitters, receivers, recorders, ground and airborne digital/analog telemetry equipment, close circuit TV systems, microprocessors, and computer
