  • Install, monitor, and maintain equipment related to the navigation systems sensor estate.
  • Contribute to the development and creation of maintenance and replacement plans for in-field equipment.
  • Research and specify replacement equipment, assist with procurement, and assess new equipment, services, and systems.
