What this job is about

Not everyone can (or wantsbe a Hollywood director, but as an Imagery Technician, you could be running your own camera and calling the shots. Consider them the A/V department of the armed forces – Imagery Technicians use video technology as a way to complete security operations, create animation, analyze and compile information from video sources and pass necessary data, graphics and video to the right hands. As a part of the surveillance and data team, you'll need to have excellent attention to detail and use your critical thinking skills to decipher exactly what the information means. No, you won't meet Angelina Jolie, but you'll be providing your country with a necessary service – and really, isn't that better? (Sorry Angelina).
