    The primary purpose of this position is to perform calibration, diagnostics repair, and certification of electronic, mechanical, and radiation Test Measurement and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE).

    (1) Calibrates and repairs TMDE within support capability and authority including various levels of calibration as designated in technical bulletins, manuals, etc. Performs functional electronic, physical, and radioactive testing involving interpretation and analysis of measurement data, in accordance with cyclic inspection requirements. Aligns, troubleshoots, tests, inspects, repairs, modifies, calibrates and certifies precision measurement equipment such as multimeters, microwave equipment, oscilloscopes, temperature analyzers, mercurial barometers, gage blocks and micrometer caliper dimensional equipment, digital voltmeters, signal generators, torque wrenches, pressure gauges, torque testers, weight scales, electronic counters, radiation monitors, and radiation dosimeters. Analyzes and isolates malfunctions; calculates and determines tolerances; and performs tests and calibrations in accordance with instructions, which are often vague and incomplete, and may require the preparation of diagrams and instructions to facilitate the calibration action.
    (2) Sets up system test sets and various types of test equipment such as frequency meters, standing wave ratio meters, radio frequency (RF) power meters, function/ arbitrary waveform generator, distortion analyzers, time frequency work stations, oscillators, voltmeters, electronic counters, oscilloscopes, attenuators, decade resistors and capacitors, signal generators, stroboscope, tachometers, pneumatic and hydraulic pressure standards and other physical and electronic tests. Diagnoses equipment, makes repairs, and replaces defective parts/components such as integrated circuits, printed circuit boards, radiation detector boards/circuits, crystals, transformers, relays potentiometers, and related components.
    (3) Following repair, tests by applying signals in known amplitude and wave shape into oscilloscopes to observe wave pattern. Checks sweep rate by feeding known signal to an oscilloscope and observing wave pattern to correct shape and size. Operates equipment to complete range checking for proper operation of positioning controls. As needed, contacts the using organization to obtain information concerning the nature of the malfunction. Uses equipment schematics, and block diagram showing major components such as amplifiers, filters, oscillators and indicator, to analyze circuits.
    (4) Determines purpose in operation characteristics of each major section. Refers to technical manuals and manufactures specifications to obtain information on operation characteristics of circuit components such as integrated circuits, microprocessors, controllers, programmable gain amplifiers, digital displays, transistors, transformers, coils, relays, and similar devices. Uses special test devices and radioactive samples or other calibrated sources. Tests equipment for sensitivity and correct operation. Observes necessary precautions as stipulated in operational repair manuals. Makes radiation calculations/readings at various distances from the standard ensuring radiation equipment is operating in specified parameters. Performs contamination/radiation surveys on radiation equipment to control/eliminate radiation leakage/contamination.
    (5) Ensures maximum number of weapons systems is operationally ready. Uses TMDE Integrated Maintenance Management Systems (TIMMS) for all supported equipment to track, turn-in, repair, calibrate, and return to the end user in a timely fashion to prevent work stoppages. Furnishes technical data to the supervisor for inclusion in reports as well as recommending equipment improvement and solutions for unusual problems related to testing and the use of precision TMDE.
    (6) Follows appropriate safety procedures, with special care being exercised while calibrating high voltage, radio frequency, radioactive sources and high-pressure instruments and gages. Performs and interprets wipe tests on radiation sources for possibility of radiation hazards. Familiar with and abides by all Federal and State regulations concerning handling, transportation and disposal of radioactive waste or devices.
