DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:

(1) Performs trouble analysis; functionally tests and evaluates operational characteristics, isolates malfunctions; repairs, modifies and performs final alignments of a multiple electronic avionics system complex consisting of several extensively integrated systems which form complex electronic information loops on the F-15 aircraft. Reviews and analyzes malfunctions encountered through questioning aircrews and evaluates operational characteristics by applying a broad range of technical data to determine nature and validity of malfunctions. Examines system failure based on an extensive practical knowledge of electronics and the multi-system complex. Devises repair procedures and isolates to specific components. Repairs systems by replacing sensors, transducers, wiring, coax/triax cables, data transmission lines, waveguides, line replaceable units, and a variety of other peripheral parts and assemblies. Uses extensive systems analysis to recommend engineering facilities for improvements on software, hardware changes and for improvements on existing systems. Ensures compatibility of items with each other and with their interfaces. After repair is accomplished, performs operational tests and final alignment as required. Inspects completed maintenance to ensure compliance of technical directives. Performs preventive maintenance through overhauls and periodic inspections on the electronic multiple integrated avionics systems of the F-15 aircraft.

(2) Interprets and analyzes waveforms, voltage/current/power indications, computer printouts, optical presentations, and instrument readings.
