As a ELECTRONIC INTEGRATED SYSTEMS MECHANIC, WG-2610-12/13, duties include:
1. Performs scheduled and unscheduled maintenance on one or more multi-complex electronic integrated systems. Completes operational checks, inspections, tests, trouble shooting, removal and replacement of Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) which are linked with integrated systems and LRUs which are independent or associated with nonintegrated systems. Isolates unusual malfunctions using technical orders, schematics, wiring diagrams, tools, and test equipment including automatic test equipment and Flight Line Test Systems (FLTS). Solves complex problems by analyzing installation, circuitry, and operating characteristics of the systems. Adjusts and aligns system sensors, transmitters, amplifiers, power supplies, display devices, controls, transponders, actuators, servos, computers and other related components. Installs serviceable components into aircraft and performs total systems alignment and harmonization in accordance with existing technical
orders and directives. Accomplishes technical order compliance, modification of components/systems and completes thorough system checks for proper operation. Maintains, modifies, calibrates and inspects a wide variety of user test, measurement, and diagnostic equipment (TMDE). Installs, modifies, overhauls, maintains, troubleshoots, repairs, rebuilds, aligns, and calibrates complete electronic avionics multi-systems control. Demonstrates a thorough working knowledge of complex aircraft avionics and or ECM systems such as the electronics package in a highly automated aircraft where the integrated flight and Integrated Countermeasures System, electronic multiplex communications bus, Inertial Navigation System, multi-function displays, head-up display, data transfer equipment, Global Positioning System, Situation Awareness Data-Link (SADL), Data Modem, Flight Control System, pitot-static system and related instrumentation, flight director instrumentation, Central Air Data Computer, engine, hydraulic and fuel quantity indicating systems, voice message warning, VHF, UHF, SATCOM Data, intercom, secure voice communications, Identification Friend or Foe (IFF), and Tactical Air Navigation System (TACAN). Evaluates operational characteristics of the integrated systems by observing and analyzing waveforms, voltage, current, power
indications, computer registers and printouts. Analyzes the malfunctions encountered through fault codes, determines repair sequence process and performs the repairs.
2. Reviews and analyzes maintenance data; determines if criteria are sufficient to provide adequate test, troubleshooting and repair procedures; devises and recommends tests, procedural changes, or data corrections. Aligns, adjusts, and performs final calibrations on integrated systems to determine successful repairs. Analyzes equipment failure and malfunctions and suggests changes to improve operation. Monitors the operation of complex, interrelated systems, analyzes operating trends, proposes preventative maintenance down time to assure continued operating capability, and recommends components for overhaul or engineering evaluation for disposal. Applies technical data and equipment specifications to determine the impact that equipment modifications or
substitutions will have upon integrated multi-system operations and various maintenance alignment procedures. Uses algebraic and trigonometric functions to adapt standard formulas to the specific requirements of the integrated system. Installs, operates, and repairs prototype or experimental electronic systems such as inertial navigation, automatic flight control as assigned. Advises Aerospace
3. Troubleshoots operational malfunctions and analyzes system performance utilizing aircrew debrief data, Technical Orders, schematic and wiring diagrams, engineering drawings, data analysis, common and system-specific test equipment and built in system tests. Performs on and off-equipment maintenance on systems such as automatic flight control, instruments, communication, navigation, and inertial navigation. Coordinates backshop bench check (if applicable, completes testing, repair, inspection, modification, programming, reprogramming, mating, adjusting, alignment, and analyzing of LRUs and shop replaceable units (SRUs). Uses a variety of test equipment such as automatic test equipment (ATE), oscilloscopes, frequency counters, phase-angle voltmeters, optical alignment equipment, digital pitot-static testers, programming units and special purpose test analyzers. Tests and troubleshoots solid state electronic assemblies and subassemblies
such as circuit cards, modules, rate generators, electronic control amplifiers, electromechanical assemblies, random access memories, programmable read only memories, and various integrated circuits. Identifies faulty parts and repairs to level authorized.
