NB52707907 Engineering Technician IV Puget Sound Naval ShipyardBremerton, WA, US
Applies advanced technical knowledge to solve unusually complex problems that typically cannot be solved solely by referencing manufacturers' manuals or similar documents. Examples of such problems include determining the location and density of circuitry, evaluating electromagnetic radiation, isolating malfunctions, and incorporating engineering changes. Installation experience should include the moving and un-crating of equipment, the installation of electronic equipment, ducts, cableways, cables, high density cable connectors, assembling cable harnesses, soldering with low voltage soldering devices, coaxial connectors, waveguide connectors, fiber connectors, and assembling small mechanical parts per fabrication/assembly drawings. Work typically requires a detailed understanding of the interrelationships of circuits.
Applicant exercises independent judgment in performing such tasks as making circuit analyses, calculating wave forms, and tracing relationships in signal flow. Applicant must be able to use complex test instruments such as high frequency pulse generators, frequency synthesizers, distortion analyzers, and complex computer control equipment. This worker analyzes system failures and other unusual system occurrences to isolate the source of the problem and determine whether the failure is caused by software, hardware, or other factors. Employees in this position maintain manual and/or computerized central office records, including detail records, traffic analysis records, cable records, line records, subscriber service records, and spare parts inventories.
Work may be reviewed by supervisor for general compliance with accepted practices. Applicant provides technical guidance and supervision to lower level technicians. Applicant may be tasked to run small shore and ship/submarine installations. Must be computer literate. Mil-Spec multipin and fiber optic connector certification preferred.
