The role of ICT technicians is to enable, operate and maintain the full range of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) employed by the RAF. At one end of the spectrum they need the traditional engineering skills required to maintain airfield and air defence systems and the other end they are responsible for the management of complex LAN, WAN and other information systems. ICT technicians play a vital role in delivering the information required by both commanders and front line operators to execute effective operations.
