has just been deployed to offer our the comms infrastructure we've laid down to supply all that comms back to the UK we've been responsible for the satellite links boy comes your Reuters your switches anything the comms needs to go back to the UK and support the air power ICT Tech's are responsible for when they gaya where we've got ver bunch of land this could be anywhere it could it be into the Middle East or it could just be on exercise in the UK we've come in we get the SAP comes up we get the link back then it's about concentrating on the tented area where we've got to lay out all the switches the route is the computers the fiber optic cabling miles as you can see all around the building to go back to the satellite which we've also gotten communications back to the UK through when arriving on site the first piece of equipment to be set off is the satellite rear link which then leads into our cormorant wagons then into the ICT control area where all comms is monitored and that's all down to the ITC text on the 90s you team the ICT that's important to this headquarters is second to none and to give it a fighting chance it's got to be in additions air-conditioned dry environments and that's what this country is all about operational security is essential to the success of missions without it people can die the role of ICT technicians intra-group for is to ensure that the security of our networks are absolutely bulletproof ping delete my fee and then just move on to the next within every computer network it's very likely that there are possible weak points that might be exploited what we're looking for is an IP address which is inside the range one six nine is the role of technicians from the pipeline line signals janitors experts in computer security to make sure that that's not possible but so happy without them we need to check these systems to make sure they absolutely fill it through basically we hack systems so that others car further

am employed in very short soak models however currently I'm employed at five name one signals unit when a technical surveillance kada measures team basically what that means is that we look for books and other see two interfaces inside all MOT areas which means that when the commanders are given their brief regarding intentions of movement personnel and operations that information is safeguarded and can be kept secret at all teams good morning sir ma'am welcome to this morning's intelligence briefing this brief is classified secret we've had reports recently of an identified aircraft entering the uk's airspace in response to this we have the typhoon Eurofighter and the f3 tornado on standby RAF Coningsby and RAF Leuchars one ACC radar will continuously monitor the area and any incursions

    well pooman, the RAF have the regiment, frontline SOLDIERS… I highly doubt like AlHillATC said " working dress light blue shirt, with shiny belt and beret" would be suitable to wear in combat situations…
    All those as you call "troops" will have to go on guard at some point they wont want to stand in full on blues…

    You'll find plenty of front line troops, airmen, sailors and Marines in Middle east. But, would it really be ideal on an exercise to wear your RAF working dress light blue shirt, with shiny belt and beret….I think not.
