The Information Systems Technician of the 21st century operates and maintains the Navy’s global satellite telecommunications systems, mainframe computers, local and wide area networks, and microcomputer systems used in the fleet. Administrative support is also provided with the operation of automated equipment that keeps records of personnel training, disbursement, health, assignments and promotions within the Navy. They ensure the all-important communications link between units at sea and stations ashore.
“So far, the Navy has allowed me to meet some great people,” said Deluna. “It has given me plenty of outstanding training in computers, and there is a lot more training available.”
Deluna’s permanent command will be in Hawaii.
