AW1 Tim is a former Aviation Anti-Submarine Warfare Operator 1sts Class (E-6). That’s a fancy title and means that I operated the sensor equipment aboard P-3 Orion aircraft for the US Navy. Those sensors included sonar, radar, ESM, MAD, camera, FLIR and such systems. My job was to take the data that the system collected, analyze it, and pass it on to the Tactical Coordinator for his use. I have ~5000 hours of aircrew time and loved every minute of it. I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat.
In this blog I talk about my job, about ASW, about submarines and ships, both ours and other nations, about politics and anything else that I want to write about. It’s my front porch, and you’re all welcome to have a seat and speak your mind.
