Overview:

PAE is currently looking for an SCA Electronics Technician Maintenance II Boat Driver to support the SCORE contract in San Clemente Island, CA. The candidate will launch, recover, perform routine maintenance, operate and navigate small watercraft (up to 100 gross registered tons) and associated equipment at near coastal waters in support of the Naval Air Station North Island, South California Offshore Range (SCORE) contract, San Diego, CA. The near coastal waters are in proximity of San Clemente Island. The candidate will use small watercraft to tow target craft and perform at sea salvage operations. The candidate will construct and maintain surface targets. The Electronics Technician, Maintenance II maintains repairs, troubleshoots, modifies and installs various types of electronic equipment and related devices such as electronic transmitting and receiving equipment (e.g., radar, radio, television, telecommunication, sonar, and navigational aids); personal and main frame computers and terminals, industrial, medical, measuring, and controlling equipment; and industrial robotic devices. The successful incumbent applies technical knowledge of electronics principles in determining equipment malfunctions, and applies skill in restoring equipment operation, evaluates performance and reliability of prototype or production mode, and recommends changes in circuitry or installation specifications to simplify assembly and maintenance. The Electronics Technician Maintenance II applies advanced technical knowledge to solve 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. Work typically requires an understanding of the interrelationships of circuits, exercising independent judgment in performing such tasks as making circuit analyses, calculating wave forms, and tracing relationships in signal flow, using complex test instruments such as high frequency pulse generators, frequency synthesizers, distortion analyzers, and complex computer control equipment. Work may be reviewed by supervisor for general compliance with accepted practices. This position may provide technical guidance to lower level technicians.
