What this job is about

Often used in search and rescue missions, as well as government operations, it means excellent critical thinking and problem-solving skills, along with the ability to follow orders and make quick judgments. Best for someone who is precise and disciplined, perhaps the best part of the job is telling people that you're an Airborne Electronic Sensor Operator at your high school reunion.
