One of ASOG’s goals is to look forward into the future, i.e., professional ASOs tracking and being informed of the next tech changes. With that, is “Blockchain” going to be a major player in the future for Airborne Sensor Operators, i.e., from an aviation, systems and data management perspective?

Like me, if you’re interested to know more, I found these articles to help me understand this new technology and how it might affect my professional ASO future. What do you think…Blockchain or Blockhead technology?

Opportunity Tracking – One Technique

One technique to track job opportunities, especially if you’re an ASO who works on specific contracts, is to track contract proposals and contract awards. Once you come across a contract of interest, identify the participating companies and search their career centers for possible openings. Remember, job titles for ASOs can vary. If you come across a possible opportunity, don’t hesitate to reach out to the firm or reach out to your network and find a POC in the company.

Here’s a current example:

CONTRACT AWARD: AAI Corp., Hunt Valley, Maryland, has been awarded a $12,759,179.04 firm-fixed price modification (P00002) to contract FA4890-18-C-0005 for force protection efforts at airfields located within the Air Force Central Command's area of responsibility. The contractor-owned, contractor-operated ISR solution is required to support ISR tasking occurring anytime. Work will be performed at Bagram Airfield and Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, and is expected to be completed by March 27, 2019.
