Remotely Piloted Aircraft Sensor Operator

Remotely Piloted Aircraft Sensor Operator

Imagine sitting in your Air Guard unit, just a few miles from your home, and controlling precision-guided munitions in a battle thousands of miles away. As a Remotely Piloted Aircraft Sensor Operator, that’s just one of the many possibilities. In this exciting career, you’ll operate remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) mission equipment, systems, electro-optical sensor systems, and electronic protection equipment to complete intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. You’ll also assist in mission planning, including close air support, interdiction, armed reconnaissance, combat search and rescue, and limited forward air control. It takes a steady hand and cool nerves to precisely operate weapons equipment from the other side of the planet.
