Job Description

  • Electronics Exploitation Technician shall provide forensics and exploitation support to meet customer requirements.

  • The Exploitation Technician will serve in relation to the collection and handling of recovered electronics devices, ensuring that triage and technical exploitation occurs in accordance with organizational requirements. As the Subject Matter Expert, the candidate must be able to work independently in isolated work environments.

  • The candidate will also execute reach-back and coordination with CONUS-based engineering staff, as needed.

  • The candidate will be expected to generate forensics reporting from technical exploitation generated products and will respond to any associated analytical requirements.

  • This position may require OCONUS deployment, after requisite mission and technical orientation and training, to the CENTCOM and AFRICOM AORs. While deployed, responsibilities include installing, debugging, maintaining, upgrading of all assigned equipment as well as provide broad mission support, training, briefings, employing and fielding of the candidate’s capability to include electrical forensics applications, tools, and systems.

  • This position will be available and willing to deploy to OCONUS for up to 6 months rotations.

What You’ll Get to Do:

  • Perform hardware and software engineering to include research, testing/debugging, exploitation, quality control, and deployment.

  • Conduct electronic analyses of target devices, including functional analyses of the target devices, understand and describe how the target functions from an electronic perspective – basic signaling characteristics; voltage levels; electrical connections; electrical modifications to commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware; logic states; operating frequencies.

  • Publish reports and briefings in order to present characterization information, electronics vulnerabilities, and exploitation recommendations.

  • Work with a team to respond to RFI’s and determine best consolidated solutions to problems.

  • Research new technologies and techniques.
