The DS/GS applies advanced technical knowledge to solve complex maintenance troubleshooting and repair problems that typically cannot be solved by referencing manufacturers’ manuals or similar documents. Typical troubleshooting and repair are above the Operator echelon of maintenance and are frequently at the Direct and General Support echelons of maintenance. Examples of such problems include determining the location and density of circuitry, evaluating electromagnetic radiation, troubleshooting wiring/cabling faults, repair of fiber-optic cabling, radio troubleshooting and repair, assisting with After Action Review (AAR) system fault isolation and repair, isolating malfunctions, and incorporating engineering; changes. Work typically requires an understanding of the interrelationships of circuits, current types of equipment used on the Fort Hood ranges, exercising independent judgment in performing such tasks as making circuit analyses, calculating wave forms, and tracing relationships in signal flow, using complex test instruments such as high frequency pulse generators, frequency synthesizers, distortion analyzers, and complex computer control equipment. Work may be reviewed by supervisor for general compliance with accepted practices. This position may advise the Complex Leader and provide technical guidance to lower level Range Leaders and Range Specialists.
Responsible for providing technical support for maintenance information and inventory management system database including; overseeing development and organization of the databases, assessment and implementation of new technologies, and providing long-term perspectives on the relationship of database technology to business opportunities. Assists Operations to achieve a state-of-the-art environment that meets current/future objectives.
Operates keyboard-controlled data entry devices such as a computer, key-operated magnetic tape, or disc encoder to transcribe data into a format suitable for computer processing. Problems such as erroneous items and codes, or missing information are resolved at the supervisory level. Work is routine and repetitive.
Loads and unloads trucks, and other conveyances, moves supplies and materials by wheelbarrow or hand truck; stacks materials for storage or binning, collects refuse and salvageable materials, and digs, fills, and tamps earth excavations. Performs grounds maintenance with hand and/or power tools. May work at all field locations.
