Quick question - I've seen it mentioned on these boards (as well as very briefly on the AEC recruiting page) but I was wondering if anyone had any information on the Space Operations side of things in regards to an AEC? From what I've seen, postings seem to be extremely limited and responsibilities right now are mainly monitoring satellites, assisting with GPS etc. but I don't know if that's the extent of it or if there are other operations going on as well.
I understand that you don't really have a choice (just a preference
) between doing the VFR/IFR or Weapons as an AEC but if someone wanted to get involved in the Space Operations responsibilities, would that be doing IFR? Or Weapons? Or maybe not even AEC but another trade like ACSO?
Any and all additional info is appreciated - space is just plain cool and being able to work in a related capacity would be amazing - thanks!
