Airborne Electronics Analyst

What's cool about this job? It's dusk. You're skimming metres over the Indian Ocean at 500Kmh. Out of the blue, you detect a new contact on your radar.

Is that small dot an enemy submarine or a school of dolphins? Your fellow crew members aboard the AP-3C Orion Maritime Patrol aircraft eagerly await your analysis. As you direct the aircraft to fly on top of the contact you use the Electro Optics to assist in classification. It's a giant school of fish. So no cause for alarm. Your aircraft resumes its patrol. You're an Airborne Electronics Analyst - an AEA.

You're part of a team with responsibility for the surveillance of Australian and International waters. You're involved in search and rescue operations, the detection and identification of warships, illegal fishing boats and large merchant vessels.
