                                Sonar Technicians, Surface (STG)


Sonar Technicians, Surface (STG) operate surface sonar and other oceanographic systems; manipulate, control, evaluate, and interpret sonar and oceanographic data. They operate surface ship underwater fire control systems (with associated equipment) for the solution of anti-submarine warfare problems, and perform organizational and intermediate maintenance on surface sonar and allied equipment.

Sonar Technicians should have excellent hearing, an aptitude for electricity and electronics, skills in arithmetic, speaking and writing, the ability to do detailed work, keep records, and perform as a team member. They should also possess curiosity, resourcefulness, a good memory, and manual dexterity with tools, equipment and machines. The ability to do repetitive tasks and get along well with people is helpful.

STs must be U.S. citizens eligible for security clearances. Adversely adjudicated drug abuse offenses will not receive waiver consideration. Normal hearing and normal color perception are required. STs must have no speech impediments. They usually work indoors in a clean, comfortable shop-like environment and computer equipment rooms. They work closely with others and require little supervision.
