Hardware Specialist (Technical Watch Office)

Safe air traffic? Not without safe hardware systems.

This is where you come in.

What does a skeyes Hardware Specialist do?

As our Hardware specialist you install, configure and maintain all of our Air Traffic Management related systems. That comprises among other things: end user interfaces (displays), radar and flight plan processing systems, aeronautical information systems and training platforms (simulators).

Is there a problem somewhere? You play an important role in logging and analysing those incidents. Of course you are also an important link in looking for a solution, sometimes under great time pressure.

Moreover, you support your fellow specialists of our regional airports (Antwerp, Charleroi, Courtrai, Liège and Ostend).

Here you are the one who:

  • co-ordinates the interventions for corrective and preventive maintenance;
  • performs interventions yourself on the systems in your own domain;
  • follows up the actions undertaken;
  • informs the parties concerned of the systems’ status.
