13R Field Artillery Firefinder Radar Operator

Company: Army National Guard
Location: Manhattan
Posted on: June 7, 2019

Job Description:

The most important thing when firing field artillery is knowing where to shoot. The Field Artillery Firefinder Radar Operator figures out where the enemy is and communicates the target's location to his or her unit.

"Firefinder" is the name given to highly specialized radar that detects mortars, planes, and other objects by using radio or sound waves to determine their location. The Field Artillery Firefinder Radar Operator operates specialized equipment designed to acquire various targets, such as enemy mortar positions and aircraft, to alert defensive units.

Job Duties
• Establish and maintain radio and wire communications
