Being an observer is a truly unique opportunity to participate in protecting Australia’s borders and the wider Australian community.
Picture yourself in this scenario – you’re sitting at the aircraft sensor station utilising sophisticated surveillance equipment and have detected a large number of contacts in your search area that all require further investigation. Your job is to implement well taught and rehearsed standard operating procedures to direct the aircraft and crew safely around the operating area, in what at times is considered marginal weather conditions. This requires a high degree of teamwork and crew resource management to maintain situational awareness and, ultimately, the safety of a government asset moving at 185 knots at altitudes as low as 200 feet above sea level during the day and 600 feet at night.
