Study Overview The Navigator utilization field was studied to better understand the work performed by AFSC l2XXX personnel within the different weapon systems which exist within the Air Force inventory.

Specialty Jobs The Navigator utilization field is separated into two main divisions navigators sometimes referred to as Weapon Systems Operators or WSOs and Electronic Warfare Officers EWOs. Numerous subsets of jobs for navigators and EWOs exist within these two distinct divisions.
