This research aimed to 1. study the required competencies for the Air Force signal Intelligence officer. 2. to develop training program for the required competencies development of signal intelligent officer for the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF). 3. Evaluate the training program for the required competencies development of signal intelligent officer for RTAF. Searching the required competencies of signal intelligent officer for RTAF personnel based on the Air Force’s core performance with delphi techniques. By 18 experts, the training program was developed to develop the necessary competencies for the Air Force Signal Corps And evaluate the training program.
The results of the study found that:
1. The seven necessary competencies for RTAF signal intelligence operators are as follows: (1) Having language ability for translating snared communication information; (2) having knowledge and basic understanding of physics and electromagnetic wave theory; (3) having basic knowledge of the functions of radar equipment (ELINT); (4) having an understanding of encryption theory (COMINT); (5) having an understanding of the products of responsible work units, as well as the needs of users in the following step to be taken in information patterns; (6) having the capability for evaluating the products of signal intelligence with an efficiency matching users’ needs; and (7) having the capability to apply useful technology to signal intelligence.
2. The training program will be developed to improve the performance required by the Air Force’s signal intelligence personnel.
