stations, dedicated telemetry systems, and numerous real-time, analysis and
notification computer systems.  The EMP also oversees the National Strong
Motion Project, which installs and operates instrumentation in structures
such as buildings, dams, and bridges whose response to strong shaking is of
interest to the engineering community.

The Radio Frequency Electronic Technician’s position primary duties will be
support, development and deployment of communications systems for all
components within the EMP including satellite telecommunications, microwave
telemetry systems, VHF, UHF and spread spectrum radio systems, and other

infrastructure for telemetry and seismological equipment.
