(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.
(3) Following repair, tests by applying signals in known amplitude and wave shape into oscilloscopes to observe wave pattern. Isolates faults by taking measurements and comparisons in voltage, amperage, ohms, henries, power factor, watts, temperature, humidity, microns, foot-pounds, decibels, sensitivity, noise, stability, Voltage Standard Wave Ratio (VSWR), impedance, phase, absolute pressure, time intervals, displacement, flow rate, etc., to determine performance of equipment.
(4) Determines purpose in operation characteristics of each major section.
(5) Completes necessary Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS), calibration, radiation reports and other records and forms on work completed. Ensures maximum number of weapons systems are 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.
(7) Performs other duties as assigned.
