About the role
As an Intelligence Specialist, you will be assisting in the preparation and planning for military air operations. This includes researching, preparing and producing mission data.
This may be presented as written reports, oral briefs or programmed software.
The Intelligence Specialist trade is comprised of two separate specialisations, Geospatial Intelligence Analysts and Electronic Warfare Specialists.
As a Geospatial Intelligence Analyst, you will receive training in the exploitation of satellite, electro-optical, infrared and radar imagery, as well as full motion video.
You will also be trained in the use of Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) software, enabling you to display and analyse spatial data for the creation of maps and various graphics that supplement intelligence reports.
The Electronic Warfare Specialist is responsible for the analysis, production and programming of data across the electromagnetic spectrum in order to support electronic warfare equipment across the Air Force fleet.
A technically challenging role, you will display a keen interest in utilising state-of-the-art equipment and software to analyse complex signals to produce high quality intelligence products.
In addition to this, you will be involved in programming aircraft self protection systems that are designed to keep our aircraft and aircrew safe.
The NZDF’s commitment to international peace and security necessitates the deployment of aircraft and military personnel overseas.
This can be in support of internationally led peacekeeping missions, or to partake in humanitarian aid and disaster relief requirements.
As an Intelligence Specialist, you’ll play a vital role to support these operations either from New Zealand, or deployed within the operating environment.
